Looking at maybe trading my Rzr and jet ski in on a new boat. Will be buying the boat to wakeboard and surf. Also pull tube etc. Which is the better boat for the money?

drive and ride both.

If you cannot, for whatever reason and are still going to drop $50K on a boat you haven't demo'd, then go with the Axis. Wakeboard and wakesurf wakes are proven, solid, amazing. The mondo may be great, but it has not been put to the test yet. The A22 hull (and little brother A20 hull) are tried and true.

I am subscribed to hear the thoughts on both of these. Couldn't make a greater comparison. These would be two of the the most bang for you buck boats if the Moomba wake is as legit as the Axis'.

My vote is the 2014 A22....but that is what I have. I haven't heard any reviews on the Mondo surf wave yet. My opinion from what I have witnessed, the Mondo will have better fit and finish. It seems like Moomba stepped it up with the Mondo.

I think the A22 is more versitile. The wedge allows for more versitile wake for wakeboarding. You can slam the boat with the wedge up and it produces a nice rampy wake then drop the wedge and it adds a lip to the wake. Plus you get the benefits of surfgate if you get the 2014.

I'm a little confused by why you're not comparing the A22 to the Mojo as they're more comparable in size. Having ridden behind the Mondo though, I can tell you the wakeboard wake is great with some weight. The surf wake is what really shines though, its excellent. Obviously, these factors are slightly improved on the big brother (Mojo), but like others have said you should demo and test the wakes yourself. If it were me, I would give the edge to the Mondo just because of the interior fit and finish. Being a similar price, Moomba is leagues ahead of Axis in this department.

Cruise control is standard on an A22. I am with the guys who say drive and ride behind both. Something else to consider when ordering new. What is your dealer relationship like? We have decided to upgrade boats and that is one of our main concerns. Who will do the little warranty issues that always come up on new boats? Will your dealer take care of you if you are having problems? Does your dealer call you back in a timely manner? Do the mechanics know what they are doing? We have weighed out all the pros and cons of new boats (price being a big factor) and decided on ordering a 2014 Axis A22. For an all around boat we are very happy with the Axis versatility. We are coming from an older tige and I would have loved to stay with tige but there were to many cons that I couldn't outweigh the pros. Good Luck on the decision

Mondo over the A20
A22 over Mondo
Mojo over A22

Moomba has really stepped up their game with the Mojo and Mondo they are both very deep boats. Metal Flake, fiberglass floor, better vinyl, surf platform are just a few that I have noticed.

We are in the process getting our Moomba LSV ready for sale this winter thru a local dealer and will be ordering a 2014 Mondo once the wife gives her blessing.

The price for the Mondo should be about $6500 less than an similar equipped A22 from my experience. We priced out the A22 and A20 for 2013 last December and the Mondo in September.

The Mojo wakeboard wake isn't even close to the A22. If wakeboarding is your thing you'll be disappointed with the Mojo. Mojo is a surfing machine, so I've heard if that's what you want. Good luck. Prices are very comparable depending on ur dealership.

I have to disagree here. The axis without extra weight is tiny where I found the mojo with stack bags the be quite an enjoyable wake. Now, if you're running 5000 pounds that's where th Axis will shine because it will stay clean with that much weight, but for most riders I would say the mojo is the better option. As far as surf wake goes, it's not even close

Not sure what axis you've ridden in, but the wake stays clean slammed or not, slow or fast. One of the most consistent wakes on the market. You don't have to run 5000lbs. If you want to run heavy you are going to get one hell of a wake though.

Just demo both and tell us what you think. I've not been in a Mondo yet, so I can't comment. I just know that the Axis wake is awesome at a variety of weight setups. It does not require 5k in ballast to be awesome.

I have to agree. I tend to pull some beginners a couple of times during the summer. The Axis A22 with no weight in it puts out a bass boat size wake that is easy for beginners to learn to cross over. Filp some switches and drop the wedge to make the wake grow. I love the increased diameter ballast hoses and higher flow pumps. The ballast fill quickly. The plug n play is also a nice feature.

This is one of the biggest reasons we decided on the A22. We have a 7 and 9 year old and I pull them around 16 mph. The axis wake was very manageable and clean for them and my wife. As soon as their done I can flip the switch, fill the ballast and have a kick a$$ wake.

No I haven't. Not sure if that would help or hurt the surf wake. Either way, my intention wasn't to downplay the axis wakeboard wake. It's fantastic and it probably is more versatile than the mojo. I simply meant that the Mojo has a much bigger stock wake and it's certainly not a disappointment for those of us that primarily wakeboard

The stock wake from Axis is perfect for me. I doubt the Mondo is bigger than the stock Axis wake. The Axis gets crazy when weight is added. I put 900lbs in the nose and 800 lbs in the rear with wedge down and it was awesome. Once my buddy that had a 2010 and a 2012 Axis rode behind one with extra weight, he was hooked. He has since added the pnp to his.

Honestly, I looked up the Mondo today and was not impressed. The interior looks a lot like my 2014 Axis. Some of the fiberglass is laid out differently but that is the main difference. Axis upgraded the vinyl so now it is good quality, just less stiching that the premium boats. Surf Gate was the selling point for me.

Really?

You've been given some great advice about taking a ride in both, having a level of comfort with the dealer and buying what you like best.

I think your pictures lack some detail. Show the sundeck comparison. I can take some pictures of mine when I pick it up from Winterization on Friday.

The first thing that is noticable is the space. The Axis is wider. You also post the best Mondo vs a plane Axis. Get a pic of the Vandell edition and compare.

No, it's not Supra/Malibu quality. It's not supposed to be. It is, however, a very nice interior for the money. It doesn't take much to be better than Axis interior though, they have see-through pieces of plastic as seat bases for god sake

I guess I have a special Axis A22 cause mine does not have see-through pieces of plastic as seat bases. My seat bases are black HDPE.

HDPE is a form of plastic that's commonly used in the production of plastic bottles... And yes, your seat bases have holes in them

I guess I am confused because my previous boat (Centurion, great boat btw) had the same type of seat bases with holes in it. The holes are allowed to drain water that gets in the seat and allow for air to flow out of the seat when it is sat on. I don't see an issue with it. The HDPE is rigid enough and seems like the standard material used as the base for seat cushions.

It is very hard to compare the two cause they are in different categories. You would be better off comparing the A20 vs. Mondo and the A22 vs. Mojo.

Think about what you are wanting in seating capacity also.

A20 = 11 people
Mondo = 13 people
A22 = 15 people
Mojo = 16 people

I agree the Mondo interior is nicely done and boat looks good overall. Better than an Axis (your opinion). If your comparing wakeboard wakes your kidding yourself. When's the last wakeboard event pulled with a Mojo or Mondo? Weight them both as you would ride them and compare. I don't want to hear about stock wake because that's up for debate too and no one rides stock.

Btw I've been in a Mondo and you go ahead and try to get 13 people in there if you want to. They better be 4th graders.

Axis A22 seat bases that you see in these pictures with the cutouts are CNC cut billet aluminum powder coated to match the tower. They are not plastic, they are not composite. No, JetRanger, there is no plywood in the A22 either.

Good lord.

Yes, the A22 interior is somewhat utilitarian. Well, that's something I liked, because if you need a new seat or a repair made, it's not going to cost you a billion dollars. I accidentially punctured a seat in the Mgrain textured vinyl of my lsv, and it was a nightmare getting it fixed, and it was not cheap. The A22 vinyl is much like the vinyl that I had on my 3 SANTE 230's, which is super easy to repair and replace if necessary. All these super complex interiors are aesthetically pleasing, but if you mess them up, cha ching!

Again, go demo all of these boats. Factor in resale, dealer network, warranty, price, performance and value. Buy what works best for you.

i was looking at mojo vs a22. i went a22 and couldnt be happier. i load 5000lbs just for surfing and the boat works like a champ. i am 400 lbs and surf this wave. tons of push. my friends that wakeboard love the wake. you cant beat a boat that was disigned by boarders for boarders. yes the interior might be a little basic but the boat is ment for riders not dropping anchor trying to look cool in party cove cause you have a wakeboard boat.

This is really something you need to decide for yourself. Go out and demo and hang out in the boats. They are both built by reputable manufacturers and good boats. They are both supposed to be the no frills boats compared to the higher end ones. I don't have a dog in the fight but my opinions from the outside...
Interior - Moomba absolutely blows the Axis away. I wish Axis would follow the suit of the Malibu and put a nice interior in their boats. They just look cheap. I know the goal is to make them look cheaper to upsell to a Malibu, but it would not take much to really spruce that up. I think MB and Moomba win here...
Wake - I have heard they both have awesome wakes and waves and you can't go wrong.
Dealer - Have you considered which dealer in town you would rather form a relationship with? This is a big part of boat ownership.

Again, go and demo and hang out in them. You will not get any real feedback on this thread. Just opinions and people sticking up for their boat purchase....

Must not know bro! but I know that ive been in the boat business for 7 years now. and have seen the market BOOM! And you might be all hyped on your axis experience. Malibu just tried too copy skiers choice Moomba line.. Moomba has been in the inboard world for a every long time.

Been on the Mojo and the Mb 52'
For a no hastle plug and play boat would be the Mb 52. Huge Comp Style surf wake that is incredible on both sides. also wake seemed solid as bodies played musical chairs. ,,Other boats seem to be picky as weight is moved around th boat. The Mb has a SUPER FAST balast fill.
On a long term investment and instant gratification on a hassle free push button wake balast system. My only choice would be the MB 52'

On a long term investment and instant gratification on a hassle free push button wake balast system. My only choice would be the MB 52'

THis thread is great... and this post made me actually check someone's profile, which I almost never do, to see if MB was starting up again with their "lets infuse ourselves into every thread" game again. But it looks like Brewkettle is a legit WW'er and not a MB troll.

With that said, your post is almost completely full of hope and dreams. No hassle plug and play? MB? what boat are you in. Their plug n play requires a whole auxillary ballast system with pumps and switches. Stock ballast system is great, but you cannot pnp that one. MB's wake is pretty sensitive side to side compared to most boats, especially compared to Axis, since this is an Axis / Moomba thread. Have not been in the new moombas, but the old supras and moombas were very sensitive side to side, but the new SA is not... hopefully moomba's hull follows suit with Supra.

"no hassle plug n play" win goes to axis, and with Surfgate available on 2014's, there really is no comparison to the moomba and axis as far a wakeboard wake and surf wave adjustability (surfgate, wedge, full ballast system plug n play with 1" I.D. hoses and pumps).

Side note, got to ride the Liquid Force Bro-boat A24..... full ballast, 750's rear, pnp front under seat bow bags, and a sumo 800 floor sack. No wedge, 23.5, 78-80'.... incredible wake. Had the LS3 motor, 2419 prop, and it could have taken a lot more weight.

What about Moombas wakeplate? Having a variable hook helps with planing, turning, and wake shape. The wedge only makes manuevering more difficult and won't effect surf wave. And the Axis wedge is manual right?
Moomba uses ballast bags that are easily swapped out for larger ones. And Moomba uses Jabsco pumps as opposed to Axis aerator pumps.
With the Supra Swell launch, I can only assume Moomba will get a surf system soon. So many S's...

Also, does Malibu/Axis still have a 75lb weight limit on top of their rear hard tanks? Not sure if they changed that or not recently.

There is no weight limit on the plug n play lol. You can run 1100s on top of the plug n play, no problem (with the right prop). The aerator pumps are plenty fast and in the latest models, it's on 1" hose. No issues there.

A22 has no issues with planing or turning. Wakeshape is changed by deploying or not deploying the wedge. The wedge is manual, but the simplicity is nice and it takes 2 seconds to adjust.

I've not been behind a Moomba, but I would put my money on the A22. The wake for wakeboarding is PHENOMENAL. I've surfed an A24 with surfgate too, it's huge and has tons of push. The interior is great. Deckadence carpet with logo and border will jazz it up a bit if you're into that sort of thing. The 2013+ vinyl is also a huge improvement.

I just remember a couple years back Malibu had a warning label saying to not put more than 75lb of weight on top of the hard tanks because it could crack/dent it. Wasn't sure if they had changed that or not. Not trying to start a debate over this, just curious if it has changed.

I was referring to planing/turning under heavy load, not just stock + PNP, but even more weight than that. Any boat that doesn't have a variable hook will be more sluggish than one with a device such as Wakeplate, NCRS, Attitude Adj.
That's what I don't like about the wedge. In my experience, the use of some "plate" works much much better than a foil pulling the hull down.

I took a surf set and a wakeboard set behind the new Mondo yesterday. I will admit with a factory ballast it could use a little help on the surf wake. But changing out a ballast bag shouldn't be where the discussion should end.

Overall the boat drove very smoothly and felt very solid. It had very little rattle and shake, especially compared to previous model moombas that i have been on. It rolled a little bit more when turning than my 210, but nothing too dramatic. Overall i was impressed, and for a boat in the 50s its amazing!

I think a tandem axle trailer would help that moomba be a bit more structurally sound going down tbe freeway at 75 mph. No way would I ever have a single axle trailer for for a boat that weighs that much.

I'm appalled by MB's transparent subliminal social media campaign.

MB is like that sea lion, sneaking in and stealing the trophy.

I didnt mean to make an arguement about it. It was fun though.

There is a lot to be said about the Axis wake when my buddy trades his 2012 Moomba LSV in for a 2013 A22. He didnt like the wake on his boat after riding the stock A22. He has since rode a semi weighted A22 and that made him decide to purchase his A22. The wake is second to none for the price. It grows to a stupid size with weight.

I own a Mojo and we surf allot and wake board very little anymore(knees/back)

... Id opt for the MB on our next boat as the surf is bad ass. I like the lay out of the MB.
