If you had open ocean, why wouldn't you just surf?

I don't think we're on the same page here... Define "open sea"..

When the wind kicks up on the lake, we call it an ocean..

The answer no, you can't, you'd be wasting ur time, the wake sucs..

And I wouldn't take the Axis in salt water.. it'll be gone in a couple of years..

Ignore the above posts. If you had the salt water package, and the water was calm enough, there is no reason you couldn't. Specially with surfgate. I'm thinking like florida keys calm on a sunny day etc.

I live in the south with brackish waters and even with the closed loop cooling and salt package, it kills the boats... I know two oil pans that rusted thru ( less than 500 hours) and engine mounts corroded beyond repair.. also the electronics on the boat went down hill fast.. Speaking from experience...

Email these guys..

they use Axis and Bu's in Dubai.. High salt environment.
They'll be able to tell you about reliability of the boats in salt water...

Actually it is possible. I remember there was a video on this thread
http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=800119
that had them pull a G23 off of their yacht and go surf in the ocean behind it in the ocean.

So yes you can, given some good conditions.

The Malibus are great boats but not the BEST wakesurf boat. If you want it for wakesurf only Get a Centurion FX44 or Enzo 240. not as pretty as the Malibu but a heck of a lot bigger wave! I like the MB Sport but they probably don't have a dealer in Spain.

Any boat with a good dead rise will do a decent wave..just depends how much weight.

Make sure you select a boat from a dealer who can service the boat well.

We have a boat in Greece ..pretty close to Spain's Salt Content and we are pretty happy with the Salt Package on it. You will have to replace Engine parts every 3 years (manifolds, water pumps, heat exchanger) but overall its no more than 2-3000 Euro every couple years to keep it good on the salt water. One thing I will tell you is DO NOT LEAVE IT IN THE WATER more than 2 weeks at a time!

Salt is not an issue if you are taking the proper precautions such as rinsing/flushing if the boat is going to sit for more than a day. I used my 06 Malibu in salt every day and sold it to a gentleman in Tennessee 2 years ago. It still runs like a champ. As for wakesurfing in the "open" sea, good luck with that. All of these type of boats ride like crap with any sort of chop.
