    Yes it is mounted to thae swim platform bracket.

    Flexing and stress over time is a big concern these models are prone to cracking the gel coat just from the stress of people on the platform.
    Overall the mount is 22 1/2" long by 3 1/2" wide and 1/4" thick with a triangle support that goes around the platform support.
    With a backer on the inside for added support that is a bit longer and wider(don't know the exact dimensions)

    We have tested it up to 15mph wile deployed with no flexing what so ever. Much above that and it is no longer in the water.

    The next step is to ad actuators for us as well to be able to swap sides on the fly would be great.

    I'm intrigued to say the least. Our hulls are so rounded and shallow in the back that not many of the surf enhancement "add-ons" have seemed like it would be worth the hassle due to the fit and limited mounting issues.
    I would have to disagree with your statement. I was able to drop almost 2000lbs with mine and no lean.... now I would have to partially agree with the hassle part but with anything there is a rate of return for any work. My rate of return is excellent. I'm in Mason County. If you in the area come on up!

    Greg is down by me in Vancouver. Hopefully he'll have a chance to witness my NSS style system. We tend to ride fairly close to each other on the river. We definitely use the same boat launch.

    I think he just needs a little nudge.

    Although if someone is used to the heavily listed/heavily weighted wave, it's possible that they aren't willing to give up that little bit extra that they've gotten used to from the whole bunch of extra weight needed to realize that gain.

    For you and I, I think we're both willing to accept a minor tradeoff for a huge increase in overall amount of user friendliness of the boat.

    Disagree with which part ? LOL the 'not' worth it?

    I'd still like to try something for the delayed convergence but I'm not willing to turn my transom into swiss cheese experimenting. Tie-ing into the platform brackets would be great, however I do already have the spider cracks 86century mentioned.

    I've watched your surfgate vids both here and on the Supra forum thread. Guess I'd like to see it before I commit to anything.

    Would love to see more detailed or closeup shots of these attachment points of your setup.

    Well, someone's gotta have the stones to go all in and make the leap! What pushed me over the edge was a guy with a Malibu that turned my vision for an NSS retrofit into a reality. I had a TON of naysayers, but I love my system and would never go back.

    And mine got a LOT of swiss cheese!!! I think like 9 holes per side. Even more holes lately when you factor in transom lights!

    I'm not sure if you are asking this of me but those aren't mine in your picture. This video shows them in detail. I made it for a guy who was interested in then a while back. I have changed the latch much for the flap and how if locks when retracted

    Not a problem. The mount is really crude.

    I fabbed it up from some scrap steel a barn door hinge and a turn buckle from tractor supply.

    That was directed at 86Century-

    I'd want to keep it simple and figure out a quick release pin or something to remove the gate vs just folding it in. I've drawn it up a few times but that's as far as it's gone. I dream up a lot of mods that never make it off paper; dual T-1200 fills per bag, LED rub rails, all kinds of crap.

    I can't seem to figure out a faster method than a synch strap. Takes about 30 seconds
