    Default More wakesurfing innovation

    Natique's NSS system. Looks a lot like the 'bu concept and, interestingly, being marketed the same way as "the next greatest thing for wakesurfing.". Both look like bolt-on POS to me.

    These are starting to look a little better. Interesting.

    little surprised at this statement. with your daughters being in the limelight of wakesurfing, any company spending r&d $$ in this sport should be commended. although I certainly don't understand the fascination with switching sides in under a second, it appears that this add-on allows this boat, similar to the z3, to create what looks to be a good wake with very little list. looks to be the next step beyond surfgate.

    my hope is that skiers has something in the testing phase and are not going to be left in the dust as all these new innovations are coming out.

    A little shocked as well. If you ask me, Skiers is behind. Of course, nobody asked me.

    That now makes Tige, Nautique, and Malibu with dedicated surf designs........

    I'd argue that these manufacturers have simply released surf enhancements on their wakeboard boats and that true, dedicated surf designs are related to the hull.

    Anything to help fine tune would be good in my book. I"m sure a lot of you have seen the difference just a half mph or moving 100-200 lbs further to one side can make in the wave.

    That is the best looking "surf" feature going so far. MC came out with surf tabs in 2010, but i like the retractable movivig plates.. pretty cool stuff IMO...

    Don't get me wrong, I love the innovation and attention being brought to the sport. But, I'd like to see something endorsed by some of the guys I saw on the podiums at the events we were at this year. When/if Keenan, Hazen, Danielo, Lagace or other top riders tell me it's "the next great innovation" in surfing, I'll be more prone to listen.

    And, by POS, try this at your upcoming boat show. Get on a 'bu and make your way to the swim platform. Watch the salesman's reaction when you go to step on a surfgate tab. If you get the same reaction I got, you may be inclined to view it as I have.

    I would only listen if they are saying it on there own video, or in person.

    Being sponcered by these brands and what they think holds no serious weight. Being paid to say something doesnt means its what they really think.

    probably the same reaction if you went to step on the wakeplate....
