    I couldn't agree more with David. I feel that even though surfing has its place it is not wakeboarding. The should not be sacrificing the wb wake to surf IMO.

    In the end, none of our individual opinions matter in regards to how the designs evolve. What matters to all manufacturing companies is what the masses want.

    Local pro shops here are selling more surfboards than wakeboards, Surf Expo in Florida is showcasing more & more boat manufacturers (2013 saw the following at the show: Axis, Centurion, Malibu, MasterCraft, Moomba, Natique, Sanger, Supra, Supreme and Tige) and in 2012 broke their attendance record with over 24,000 and even on our little, ole' forum the wakesurf threads outnumber wakeboard threads by a slim margin.

    Watch out kids:



    and we rule with our checkbooks and we like to surf.

    not hating, just facting.

    I think there is room in most manufacturers' lineups for ski boats, wake boats, and surf boats. Of course there will still be plenty of crossovers too.

    At least kneeboarding died off...

    +1 for the old guys!! Our (at least this guy) bodies prefer the gentleness of surfing over the pounding of wakeboarding and the major reason for my OBV purchase this year.

    With my 50th coming up quickly, I love the fact that I can still participate in a boating activity in which a bad fall will not put me in a cast or needing some sort of major surgery!!!

    I plan on having my son surf one this Friday. I am going to bring a 750# bag with me so that I can compare the stock 400# with the 750#.
