Just a thought - platforms seem to be various heights in the water, depending on how you're weighted (or, if you own a Supreme V226, some of the 2011's were higher than the 2012's, etc) the 2012's throw a better goofy wake I'm told with it a few inches lower?

Why not create adjustable height platforms? It could easily be done with 2 quick release pins/brackets and allow you to slide the height up and down to help shape your wave.

Has any boat manufacturer ever offered this? Maybe it's overkill, but it would be cool to be able to experiment not only with different weighting options but to also use the platform to help shape/clean up waves depending on how many riders/weight you were rolling with.

Maybe something to consider as all the manufacturers push into bigger/better wave technology?

I would think that the adjustable plate that most manufacturers offer would give the same effect. I know the attitude plate on my MC changes the wake a lot depending on how far up or down it is.

I was thinking of a lifting platform the other day. MC makes theirs fold down to fit in the garage. Why not fold it up?

That's awesome. I would def opt for the option.

What's with the plastic? Keep the spray from the fae to a minimal?

Ummm...exactly! Would love to see what the wave does when changing the height!

Wakeboard/surf manufacturers...take note! This is just another way to dial in that wave!

Now, who's gonna install the Switchblade, Surfgate, pureVert and adjustable platform on their boat FIRST???
