THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! I had a chance to check them out at the Spring Boat Show here in Michigan. The idea and construction are PERFECT! If they made a matching Ski rack I'd absolutely pony up the cash to have these on my boat.

Here are a few pics I snapped;

You can't really tell from the picture, but they rotate a full 180 degrees. They clamp onto the tower cross bars.

My dealer quoted me $1,179 plus tax even though the racks are listed as a $695 option when ordering a boat. Kinda like the Z-5 rack, it's a $1,500 option but $2,495 if you buy it afterwards. Makes no sense. I'm not a fool and didn't pay near retail for my racks.

Depends on your dealer. I've heard between 800-1200.

I didn't ask the dealer for a price; but doesn't it stand to reason that they could order a pair with an existing boat order, remove them from the boat, lower the invoice price, and sell them to you? Obviously there would be no mark-up in this (which is I'm sure why the retail price is so high; so the dealers are self accessorizing their boats). Thats what I'd try to con my dealer into doing, lol.

Then the dealer would have a wakeboat with no racks and 4 ugly holds drilled into the tower.

I'd be fine with that, lol.

My thought was that they could swap the old racks onto it. I didn't realize that the clamps bolted through the tower, haha.

You will not find new, quality swivel racks for under $900-$1000

The Lip Boarding racks I have are not nearly as nice, but were only a few hundred bucks, and get the job done just the same. The main feature I like about these is that they can rotate in 180 degrees and lock in that position. My current racks have a quick release, so instead of rotating them into the boat when I tow I just pop them off.

These are modeled after My hydrofoil rack and my foil is heavy heavy heavy, I'm pretty sure that their wakeboard rack could hold some boards. $550

I'm definately getting a Skyski in the fall/winter. This is my first wakeboat so I'm just going to try to get "decent" at wakeboarding and surfing this season.
