    Default Ronix ballast system

    Wow. It's amazing to see the R&D dollars and resulting products that are focused on wakesurfing. The big boys are recognizing the potential for this and folks better get on board or be left behind.

    Think about it. Malibu is banking on SurfGate. I spent 2 days on a SurfGate boat and I think they have a huge hit on their hands for 90% of the folks out there. Not a great wave, but better than just good for weekend warriors.

    I spent a few hours at the World Wakesurf Championships with none other than Jimmy Redmon. Who is he, you ask? Just the founder of Liquid Force. Super cool guy, really personable and ready to make mucho dinero with wakesurf products.

    So, check out these vids of a new ballast system coming from Ronix. Looks pretty dang impressive and I love the simple ingenuity of it all.

    Just listened to the vid, I had it on mute when I watched it first.

    Pump is the rule 3700 bilge , very fast but this system will be spendy as the pump is 175 without the hose, fittings and 12 volt... Great idea and wow, really fast.

    Looks like 1.5" pool vacuum hose they're using.

    Great for throwable bags but what about plumbed in systems? Still - spendy...

    WOW thats pretty impressive, i see that selling big next year. The guys that already run outside ballast bags will be the first in line i think.

    Now make an inport for that and i think you will get a lot fot he people like me who like invisable ballast jumping on board.

    I better make a stop in at Wake Makers and chat them up on this LOL.

    I was at wake makers today and they said the first video was supposed to be private only. Ronin didn't want to release it publicly

    I assume that's why your having problems viewing it right now.
