I was initially leaning towards the OBV until I came to the realization that there just wasn't a big enough difference between the new OBV and my current direct drive that could justify spending that much. They were so similar in length, freeboard and weight that I decided to dig a little deeper and get a boat that would be significantly different for me.2013 Mobius LSV

To the OP: have you considered whether you can adapt your current boat for a few hundred dollars' worth of ballast bags to your new interests? For example, Fly High makes a 1000 lb surf bag in an L shape that you can put in either corner of the stern, on the bench seats. I do not want to encourage you to stick with a "wrong" boat for your needs, but this might suffice for a couple of years until you could possibly afford an upgrade that offers "doubt removal".
As moombadaze noted, moving up in boat size might also necessitate an upgrade in your tow vehicle as well.2005 XLV, upgraded ballast, Comptech swivel wakeboard and hydrofoil racks, Monster cargo bimini

I went with OBV because I wanted a v-Drive that I could still slalom behind. The LSV wake is brutal for skiing, even at higher speeds, while the OBV wake is actually great at 30+BoatBling Moomba forum member discount thread

I was trying not to knock the NG OBV b/c I love the boat. I think it is probably the best crossover boat there is right now if you don't need the extra space, especially up front. Our skiing went from the primary activity to one or two people doing one or two runs all day when we are out. Plus there's usually at least 8 of us if not more on board. If I was a one kid family and still skied like I used to I'd probably be rocking the OBV -- and it would fit better in the garage. The most amazing thing to me about the OBV is that it does throw a nice little wake for skiing but can still be set up to surf very nicely. I don't know of any other boat that does both of those things.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!
