Looking to buy my first wake/ski boat. Hoping to get something that I can ski behind but also teach my 3 kids to ski/wake/surf with.
Currently looking at 2 possibilities, first is a 2013 Tige Z1 second is a 2011 Supra Launch 22v. Both are in great condition and reasonably priced (Supra about 5-7k less)

I like certain things about both, but both are also missing I few things Iíd like.

Any info regarding pros/cons of each boat...

From what I know of those 2, the Tige is the better surf boat but I never cared for the Z1s wakeboard wake. The Supra has a nice wakeboard wake, but isn't going to surf as well.

So depends on what your priorities are.

The Z1 doesnít have a skin pylon, just the tow hook, not sure if thatís s big deal or not,

The Supra doesnít have a walkthrough to the back pkatform, so you are walking over the cushions, and the floors are carpeted, not snap out

Have you looked to see if it has the walkthrough under the rear hatch? I know many Supras from around that year had a hard floor when you lifted up one of the ballast hatches in the rear, which functioned as a walkthrough. That piece was also on a hinge and could be lifted up to allow access to the bag.

I would think almost any boat will surf well with a new surf system stuck on the side. I have a Nauticurl for my supra 24v. It went from barely surf able with just 1,100 in the back full, center 1,150 almost full and 400 pounds of lead on the surf side. To one of the best I've surfed leaving the wakeboard set up in the boat and sticking the Nauticurl on the side of the boat. Maybe drain alittle out the center to get it a little taller.

I do not know much at all about tige. I used to ride behind a 2007 22SSV and it was a very fun wakeboard wake.
