Like the sleekness of the base of the tower.
It doesn't have the oversized bulging plastic fairing like it came off a Honda Goldwing motorcycle with screw holes and all

Did MB make any hull changes on that boat?
Old    Hyperryd (Hyperryd)      Join Date: May 2014       07-30-2017, 8:33 AM Reply   
Yes. Quite a few running surface changes. They also reduced the ballast yet got a better wave because of the hull changes.

Brand new redesigned B52 slowly being leaked. Looks like more bad news for mashed potato setters.

That bow seems to be running pretty high and the person surfing looks to be about 4'-11". I'd love to see some video of it from different angles. It's got my attention though.

Yea, creative marketing...they put a "little person" on the surfboard with a good camera angle.

4'11" is generous. I'll bet she could stand on the gunnell and not hit the tower.

Well I have never been an MB guy but I must admit that is one good looking boat and wave! I would be a player on that boat right there.

I am one of the guys in the bow, The real secret is this is a custom one off giant MB to mislead all of you into thinking we are all Tiny. Their plan was foiled though....

Unless the "chick" sitting to your left is a tranny, you should be the ONLY guy in the bow.

I am envisioning this thread to turn into that old thread where people started photo shopping things in it. Pretty soon, someone is going to pull her off of the board and stand her on the gunwale. Maybe they will put the TRex from the Moomba promo on the board....please!

Wonder if they paid Cobalt for the flip down swim step they have patented?

Rest assured the Malibu legal team is all over it. Their royalty business leads the industry. Lol.

Last month while on holidays I was thinking to myself why wasn't there a retractable swim platform like some of the bigger boats and as soon as I got back I saw the sea ray and now the MB today. I think it's a great feature.

Looks like Tige has some similar marketing on their video wallpaper. http://tige.com/2018-new-product

In the Tige vid, I think what you are seeing are some shots of Josh Kerr and his daughter. Since picking up Kerr as a rider they have used his family in several promos. I think they are trying to include families in their marketing vs just a bunch of bros. and hot bikini women. That was at least my take on it.

I've never seen a board shaped like the one in the surf pocket. Looks like it's pulled in in the middle like a parabolic shape. What board is that?

Not sure why the secrecy, but that board is the 2018 Liquid Force Shelia.

Weird. Don't want to be closed minded, but that is weird. Who knows? Maybe it'll be all the rage soon. Still weird...

You would think a side edge like that would not carve to well and not be as fast cause of the shape at middle of board. I have not seen anything quite like that either, be interesting to hear how it performs. Cool shape, but is it functional and what are the strengths to it

The old Roam wakebaords and snowboards have this shape and it seems to do well for when they're on edge .... but they also flex into it. I'm sure there is some reason, even if that reason is being a gimmick.

The new 2018 23wb is awesome. I have only had mine out once to break in and we surfed and wakeboarded once, It is epic. I picked mine up at the factory and went out for a maiden voyage with Mike B. I did the 575 motor. He wanted to make sure everything was perfect before I took it home. MB did a one off color for me. My gatorstep is also one off. It is due next week. Then I will post when done.

Question for you...what material is that next to then engine in the side compartments, carpet?
Old     (SoulSurfer)      Join Date: Oct 2016       09-16-2017, 9:49 AM Reply   
Pretty sure that picture was taken before the build was complete, as the compartment dividers aren't in place and the ballast valve is exposed.
Old    Don Christman (ktm525)      Join Date: Mar 2009       09-16-2017, 7:51 PM Reply   
Soulsurfer is correct. There is HDPE dividers on both side of the engine.

I am not a surfer, but can tell you that my 2018 23' wake is massive. With everything full it is almost too big, which I know is impossible, but it is true. The wake is very firm and large - much like a quarter pipe.

Recognize Orwood in the background! Great looking boat, glad to hear MB has stepped up their surf game. Can I ask ballpark pricing with the options (specifically engine) you've put together?
