Surf Boat FAQ

Wakesurfing has all but taken over the watersports scene. Easier falls, a mellower learning curve and a laid-back lifestyle all contribute to the sport’s ever-increasing popularity and the reputation it enjoys as one of the fastest-growing watersports on the planet. Whether you’re 15 or 50, you can wakesurf. We guarantee it. And what’s more than that, you’re not just going to get up, you’re going to have a blast. There’s truly something for everyone when it comes to wakesurfing, and there’s a perfect boat out there for every wakesurf crew. We’re here to help you find it.

 

As V-drive inboards have gotten bigger and more advanced, wakesurf waves have grown exponentially (while at the same time becoming easier to create). For years, inboards have naturally created ocean-like swells, and they could always be safely surfed due to their inboard-motor configuration that tucked the propeller safely under the boat. Over time, direct-drives evolved to V-drives, and the boat’s center of gravity moved to the back, which buried the stern in the water and made for meatier wakesurfing swells. The bottom surface has also evolved, morphing from nearly flat bottoms for small slalom wakes to the now industry-standard deep-V hull bottom, which plows through the water and displaces an insane amount of water to create a thigh-high wave to play on.
