  1. New boat advice

    Yep, demoed the ZS and it is a great boat, but the Fi21 was nicer, quieter, better wave and wave set up...plus the 21 works better for us. The 409 engine moved the Fi21 around like a dream...if I would have went Fi23, I might have went to the 450.

    Thanks for the response. Pulled the trigger on a 2020 Fi21. Easy to dial in the wave and quieter than the Supreme.
  3. Narrowed down between these two smoking deals: 2019 ZS232 for 83k 2019 S211 for 68k Both are equally equipped, both have the 409HP engine, both have PNP ballast Most of the time it is me, the wife, and the 12 yr old daughter 80% surf, 10% tube, 10% cruise We have a platform dock that is 20ft long, so the ZS232 is a a bit big, but it will fit, I've measured everything Mostly, I'm concerned about the wave with our typical light crew, want the wave to be easy to get without throwing tons of lead in it Towing is a non issue, have a Cummins 2500 It is not a money issue either I know the 23 has a bigger and better wave potential, I know everyone wants a 23, but we keep our boats a while so I'm not really worried about re-sale too much...just an easy to achieve wave with the 3 of us Opinions?
  4. New boat advice

    Good analogy...Lexus vs Toyota...we just went through that exactly with my wife's new car...drove the Lexus and then bought the Toyota Highlander...same cars for the most part, not as much bling as the Lexus, but still a really nice car with a great ride.
  5. We are looking to buy a new boat. Surfed the Centurion Fi21 and the Vi22 yesterday (70 and sunny, so with a wetsuit we were good, Lake Lanier near Atlanta), both are amazing boats and both had an identically awesome wave with just the stock ballast and PNP bags. We don't really care about the bells and whistles that much, so the dealer suggested the S211 or ZS212. Have found a couple of reviews, but wanted to see if I could get more input. Dealer said the wave is or can be as good as the Centurion, but it takes more work to get it dialed in. Trying to figure out if it is really worth the extra coin for the Centurion. We are coming from a Volvo Forward drive Starcraft that we had maxed out with ballast, obviously just about every surf boat we've tried is better. Moomba Max and Helix...big waves, struggled with push even with all the PNP and 600 lbs of lead, cheap finish Tige R21 or R22...awesome push and steep wave with just stock ballast. Loved the wave but playing around with the TAPS3, couldn't really change it a whole lot. Better finish than the Moomba Tige RZX2...bigger version of above, better layout, nicer finish...still more of a one dimensional wave, but a really good one. Centurion Vi22 and Fi21...huge wave with great push...stock ballast and all PNP bags. Easy to steepen up for surf style guys like me, easy to flatten out for skim style guys like my friends, easy to mellow out and elongate for my wife and kids. Didn't have as firm and pushy of a wave as Tige, but it was bigger, longer, started further back and gave you more room to play. High quality interior. One of the biggest things for us was how quiet the PCM engine is compared to the Raptor. So, we've done a lot of research and riding and Centurion or Supreme is where it is at for us. Crawled in the Supreme S211, but ran out of time to surf it. Gone be too cold for our Southerners to surf anymore this year I think, so looking for some wave feedback and boat feedback on the Supremes. Thanks.
