I think what the OP was referring to was what all the Boat Companies Have been using as the excuse to raise prices. For the past 8 years, and at all the boat shows, it's always said that the rising price of the boats is due to the rising costs of oil and petroleum products that are used in the hull. I personally think it's just a good excuse to raise the prices and at NO point are they going to lower the prices. Wakesurfing is the big market and they want big, fancy boats and are willing to pay for them.
Before, when trying to sell a boat based on the wakeboard wake most of the actual buyers (dad's with money) didn't care as much about the actual wake. But now a LOT of the buyers who can afford these boats want the hugest wave possible and as such are willing to pay for it. Boat sales have remained steady (both is sales and price increases) due to this. Of course this is not all the buyers but a large portion of them.
