    Default Flow for OBV ???

    Has anyone heard an update for the flow on the OBV? I am trying to wait but it is summer time and would like to know if it is in the works and if I will be able to get it this year or have to wait another year.

    Talked with two different dealers in the last couple of days and both say there is nothing yet for the OBV and may be 2015 before its available.

    Jester I wouldn't waste your time or money on this. Just sell your boat and buy another one, you already said you wanted something a bit bigger.

    No its not that at all.

    Just talking to Jester, he really needs a bigger boat, so no need to spend money on his OBV and give him more reason to keep it when he just needs to buy a bigger boat and get what he wants, more wake and more wake surf ability.

    mikenehrkorn, as I mentioned, it is just my opinion.

    Given our deep hull design, I think it is an unneeded accessory. The boat surfs great with nothing more than 750's in the rear and 400 in front.

    If I'm gonna spend an additional $1300+ on the boat, I'd put into into electronics or something (stereo) that would make a huge difference.

    Agreed, but I have both regular and goofy surfers in my family, so really looking for the Flow to save on time (no constant emptying and filling of sacs) as well as wear and tear on the ballast pumps.

    Default Flow for OBV ???

    We've surfed an OBV with FLOW and there are certainly benefits to using it. First, you can run the boat more level/less list. I think this makes the boat much easier to drive, especially for Momma. Second, I think it lengthens the wave without knocking it down like increased speed and bow weight do.
