Hey all, (06/07 Sanger V215 Wake 2 vs Elite C4 Centurion Air Warrior Need some help choosing my first boat. I have test driven both boats and cannot decide. They are both comprable in price. The primary activity I want to do is wake surf. I am an ocean style surfer and surf most days in Santa Cruz, CA. Can you give me reasons why one is better than the other. Also what will i need in addition to the stock accessories that come with the boat. Please do not get upset I also posted this in Wakesurfing. I just would like some further advice. Thanks for the help, Brian
if you primarily want to surf, you will be much better off w/ an avy or enzo a couple years old -- the surf wake is so much better than the air warrior.. i have never been in a sanger so i cannot comment on it... good luck w/ your choice...
Sanger build quality is top notch and will last you, IMO, longer than a Centurion will. The Centurion is all about style, etc... while the Sanger is plane jane and all about being built like a tank. You will have un-equaled support from Sanger in CA too, they are family owned, and always go the extra mile when it comes to customers.
I tend to disagree with Showtime on the wake for surfing, The 215 wake is more than respectable when loaded down. Super height and a great curl. You just cant go wrong with a Sanger bottom line. Centurion head to head does not match up with a Sanger.
You probably already know this but the boats are built differently Sanger uses fiberglass encapsulated lifetime warranty wood that is not supposed to rot.
Centurion Builds an all fiberglass boat that they call ICS construction. The boat is built in 3 parts the hull the stringers and the deck, sidewalls, floor these 3 pieces are bonded together then filled with foam
IMHO Centurion has the superior surf wake but Either boat is an excellent choice.
This is an Avalance wake. The Elite C-4 will be very close, just a little smaller. The hulls are the same. The Elite C-4 is just a little more narrow. This is not weighted as much when the adults ride. My son is 8 and is right at 5' tall. He was just learning at the first of the summer.
