I still think there is no replacement for displacement

The new system is awesome. Check out our Facebook page,, for videos on different models. The Gen2 Surf System is specifically engineered for each model to make the wake as even on both port and starboard side. The boats run about 600rpms or more compared to other manufacturers with a longer wave with better push.

So... the video was up this morning and now it's gone. Whats up with that Redline?

I'm not impressed. Maybe its better in person, but that wave at the redline link isn't that great. Maybe they just need more ballast...?

Tabs are a complete waste of money. The don't increase the size of the wave and do very little to shape it.

Well, not these tabs. They affect size and shape dramatically. I have been on every major system out there, and pretty much every newer boat without a system.
I haven't first hand seen the new moomba 'cattle' gate or the supra swell, but have been on their 2014 boats.

Played with the Mastercraft Gen2 tabs yesterday on an X-30, and I am very impressed. Solid engineering and design. Probably the best equal weight system I have experienced. Definitely, top 3 of any system, IMHO. A truly solid mixture of displacement and standing wave energy with easy shaping mods, and effortless side to side transition in seconds.

It is a great time for surf boats. Some really solid additive systems out there, as well as some really great hulls that can produce some great wakes.

Well, the short lived video shows that equal weight on both sides and these tabs the starboard side wave still takes a hit.

Other then ease of switching from side to side these tabs wont add much to the push or size of the wave. MC didn't design the hull of the X30 with tab use in mind. They are an after thought.

Because you can tell the push from that video?

Nice try Rob. Yes, you can get an idea of the push buy the size and shape of a wave.

Honestly, from what we know about surf vids and perspective and camera angle is there anything to be over joyed on any of these?

The only thing I can say is good about this is it will give weekend recreational surfers an easy way to switch from port to starboard. Even with that the starboard still takes a hit.

Tabs are not some magical surf system. They do not add to the push, height, or mass of the wave. Anyone that has tried to weight a boat knows this isn't going to be some push a button and get a killer wave type thing.

If you want a great wave you are far better off spending your money on weight, IE sacs, pumps valves and time learning how to weight your boat.

I troll on WakeWorld often, this may be the greatest post I have seen. Truly.

The video that Redline posted makes them look pretty good for factory surf setups. I think the X30 looks the best but I wouldn't mind surfing behind any of them:

If it's push, height and mass you want...spend your money on a trip to Santa Cruz. There is a wave factory there giving away free waves.
