The WT-SURF is a bigger boat than the original Wake Tractor and they are asking more for them. If I remember right, not quite $80k though. To me personally, trying to sell a brand new “surf” without...

1. They still make the 210. They really didn’t change a whole lot on the 210 hull in 2014. They basically cut notches in the hull so the NSS isn’t a bolt on and made a few minor tweaks. Aside from...

Usually hulls are symmetrical. That’s not always going to make a symmetrical wake. Weight is usually not distributed evenly, especially with passengers on board. And the prop rotation is going to...

I wouldn’t change the budget wake boat chart. It’s still pretty close to right. If anything it might be worth starting a budget wake surf board chart that goes to like $50k and is short like the wake...

Supreme is not a budget Nautique. It’s very much it’s own thing. They have some of the same suppliers now due to Correct Craft owning them but they have their own hulls and their own completely...

The Nubstep and Neo in 4’8” are great. At 6’2” 220lbs I primarily ride a 4’8” Neo now but only because I couldn’t find a Nubstep in that size. I went down from a 5’ Neo that my wife still primarily...

Inventory is almost non-existent right now. Ordering may be your only option. My local Nautique dealer is currently out of boats. My local Centurion dealer has one Centurion currently for sale. Don’t...

Even a 2015/2016 boat stands a good chance at spending time at the dealership so I’d look around for a dealership you like and then narrow down the boat. Nautique, Mastercraft, Malibu, Supra, and...

Wind can absolutely affect the wave. In my experience anything over 10mph is going to be noticeable. Anything over 15mph is going to be a pain to work with. In higher wind situations you want the...

Your engine manufacturer should have published specs on how often to do these things. I’d follow that. Most of these are 200-500 hour things. A couple of notes:

This is kind of apples and oranges. The G21 is a 21’ wake-specific boat. The XT23 is a 23’ crossover. It’s hard to beat the surf and wakeboard wakes of a G21 in a 21’ package. I came really close to...

NSS 0 is full out. My hydro gate is the old manual one. For that one, lower is more vertical but we only have 1,2,3. I run at 1 to 2. I’m not sure if they changed the numbering for the computer...

Out of the box, a 230 needs more weight to be a great surf boat. I run about 2,200 in the rear (factory tanks plus 700lb piggyback bags). Up front I run a 650 under bow seat sack piggybacked on...

Epic doesn’t make wake boats anymore and quality control issues were a big part of that. I don’t have personal experience but I’m also not willing to be the one who finds out. If after reading the...

Personally, I first look for how maintained the interior is. In my experience people who don’t maintain vinyl and teak don’t maintain engines either. I do a thorough lake test and check fluids before...

What kind of boat? Are they impeller driven or aerator pumps? I’d feel each pump to make sure they’re running. If not, I’d get a multimeter on each pump and make sure you’re getting voltage. If...

If it’s not too hot for the battery, it’s probably not too hot for an amp. You could always measure temps in the compartment to make sure. My engine bay gets dirty over time. You may get a little...

What i did was buy a 2011 Nautique 230 for that money. It has a really good wakeboard wake at the speed I ride at (22.4MPH), a great surf wave, and is 23’ so it fits a lot of people. The years are...
