I know it has probably been posted before, but this is one of the biggest wakes I have seen...

Great video too...

Daniel,try it again,I didn't wait but 2-3 seconds...

I never seen the video before but IMHO,The pics posted before made that wake look huge and now I see the pic they took in the video and does not look as good or near as big as it did on the still pics.

Definitely cool video and a nice looking wake.

if it was a mastercraft churning out those ginormous swells in the video, big ed would say it was the biggest, best wake he's ever seen...just kidding...sort of...

go there to see some more pics and the original video. the original has my favorite part in it; scott weatherford gets absolutely booted on a massive double-up and doesn't even attempt a trick, just holds on for dear life as he whiplashes his head against the wake. wynn's section ain't too shabby either. most of his cuts are taken from about 10 feet out completely stiff-legged on his approach, and the wake still boots him plenty. crazy

Just watched the video from their site. Same song, a few different clips. You're right... that double-up about half way through the video is HUGE!!! That could very well be the biggest air I have seen on any video...

i didn't say you said differently. i was simply saying it looked nice and big to me.

i don't think the video even begins to justify that wake. the video quality is a little lacking, but if you pause it at the right times, the wake is literally hip-high. that's by far the biggest--and still clean--wake i've seen, but i would love to see a similarly weighted (about 4000 lbs. people/ballast) x-2...that would be a rediculous wake

I hate to say it, but I don't think an X2 wake can stack up to a heavily weighted LSV. If you are talking pure size I think Jarrods old LSV had the biggest wake I've ever ridden. That and you never had to mess with it. No curling over, no wash, the boat couldn't be pulled around.

I love my X2 and we tried to weight our boats until they sunk, but I haven't seen anything that big out of them yet. Close, but not quite. Lb for Lb the X2 makes a bigger wake, but I think the threshold is lower.

do you have to wear a vest surfing? no one on my lake does

The list of people who have drowned wearing a life vest is pretty darn short. I wouldn't let you get out behind my boat without one.
