  1. Wakefoil recommendations

    We’ve been running Axis foils here in Tahoe. They’re an incredible product! We started with a Cloud 9 & a Slingshot but the Axis has changed the game for us! We can even surf ropeless 3rd wave behind my buddies carbon Gekko ski boat. On a surf boat we sometimes have one guy surfing first wave and another guy foiling on the 2nd or 3rd. It’s a lot of fun once you dial it in! my setup: Board - Carbon Ride 140 Mast - 75cm Fuselage - short Front Wing - 920cm Rear Wing - 440cm We have a 1020cm wing as well and there is noticeably more lift but at the cost of a little less playfulness. Enjoy! It’s fun to suck at something again!
  2. Hey guys! First post here but I know I’ve come to the right place! It’s finally time I can justify upgrading my boat to something surfable! I’ve been looking around for the past year or so, comparing different options in my price range ($40k-$50k) and have pretty much made up my mind - an Enzo. Tahoe gets gnarly so the deep V will help a lot with that and I’ll take all the freeboard I can get. I don’t always have a big crew, usually only 4-5 people and often a dog or two so I don’t “have” to have the biggest boat but I hate being cramped so I’d like all the room I can get. That being said, I’m wondering which model would work best for Lake Tahoe and also, any features that are must haves or years or features to avoid. Tahoe is at 6,200ft so performance is something to consider. From what I’ve read, the SV230 requires substantially less ballast than the SV240 to get a proper wave. With that in mind am I wrong to assume that the 230 would have better performance with the same engine? Obviously I’ll ensure to prop correctly but I’d like to set myself up for success wherever possible. Ideally, I’d love to find a 244 or 233 as we rarely use our bow and would really enjoy the extra room in the cockpit. Maybe the 233 would be perfect as it should take less weight, and probably has as much cockpit space as the 240? The problem here is that it’s really hard to find a 233 or 244 within my price range. I wish I could just bite off a little more but our season is short and I have a lot of other hobbies competing for my interest. I just really can’t justify it. So, which boat would you recommend? Should I automatically omit any of these with the small engine? Any and all advice is welcomed! Thanks in advance!!
