  1. help

    I have a 2017 s238. You'll find a few threads here by me and some others who have the boat. It is my first surf boat.(I've had boats for years though) I learned on the boat but I grew up snowboarding and surfing so I didn't have a problem standing up. Just an issue with catching and tuning the wave for maybe the first 5 trips out. I love the boat. I found the windshield very helpful and I think I would miss it if I bought a new boat. I often pull up to the dock and am able to grab the rope and tie on easily. I also like being able to pull up to the surfer in the water and look over the side. I never got wet because of it and I love how different it looks from all of the other boats that have the rounded glass. The thing I was worried about most was the push on the wave. It does work stock but it's a beast of a boat and takes more weight than the stock setup to sink it down. I upgraded to the wake makers package and added 500lbs of lead. It was a game changer and I became addicted to it quick. I didn't have any issues with it. My family enjoyed the boat as well. We spend a lot of time anchored. I fill the QF tanks to sink the platform and the kids love swimming right up onto it. I can't really say anything bad about it. I have just about every option other than the gator floor and the tower speakers. I prefer to take the snap in rug out and clean it. The gator floor would get stained with the kids being little and eating on the boat all the time. Didn't get the tower speakers because the stock radio was loud enough. We like to be able to talk to each other rather than yelling over the radio. Also, my kids are little. Just no need for that. It's preference. Let me know if you have any questions.
  2. Nice. I'm looking into it all now. I'm considering the session, which is $200 but $50 sounds a bit better. Hate to put $$$ towards a camera instead of another board...Thanks!
  3. I was thinking of getting a go pro but they are pricey and I wasn't sure how much I would actually use it. Then I saw a $100 dash cam for a car in BJs and was wondering if that would work. Does anyone have a camera attached to their tower(or anywhere) to grab video? If so what are you using and how is the footage? I'm not interested in choppy unclear footage but I don't need 4k either. 1080p is probably fine. I'd like to be able to hit record and drive. Image stabilization might be helpful but not even sure about that as cell phone footage does well. Thanks!
  4. I can get about 15 feet back but I was seeing that a shorter rope pulls new people out of the water much better. The angle changes and it seemed to help them get up.
  5. I have the same inland surfer mentioned above. Fits both hands but is snug. Never bothered with just the rope or a T handle. Never used the wakeboarding rope because It's so much wider and I don't want anyone to get hurt. We toss the rope on the other side of the wake and then someone in the boat pulls it in, or it stays there. I threw it back to my 6 year old who thought she was going to catch it and it hit her in the face, so now they all duck if I go to throw it back to the boat...:) Anyway, the inland surfer rope seems to be quality and I can tell it's going to last. I shortened it a bit though. It's a little long stock but sections can be removed.
  6. The lake I'm in is half NJ and half NY. I surf both sides. I try and stay closer to the shore line because it doesn't both other boaters. We have a bunch of people who like to go out to the MIDDLE and drop their anchor and hang for hours. So, I try to be nice and not circle them surfing. But, if it's between the law and them, they'll need to anchor closer to shore, out of the way of boats that are moving. 600 is huge though. It looks like it's in the early stages. Hopefully that gets knocked down to at 200ft. How do I measure anyway? Eye it up and hope my eye is better than the police? As the distance gets longer, that gets harder to do. They should put markers up if this goes into effect like Rhunt said...
  7. The S238 Feeback thread

    I have a set tied at the slip as well. I don't see any harm in the way I have it. Is this a wake surf forum or a fashion show forum? lol The way I do things makes life easier and quicker for me on the water. It's just that simple. Being a dickhead about it is just childish, and funny to me at the same time.
  8. The S238 Feeback thread

    Why put those dirty things in my boat when they can hang above the water? You guys who don't keep your boat in the slip all summer may not understand how gross they get sitting in the water protecting the boat. They are tied up higher on the cleats. When we stop on the water to eat it makes things easier as well, as I can just lower them in quick when pulling up to the restaurants or the ice cream place.(we have multiple places to dock to eat on the water as well as an ice cream parlor.)
  9. The S238 Feeback thread

    they are pulled in. I tie them up higher when we are underway. They hang much lower when we are in the slip. Pulling them in the boat on the seats is gross. Since the boat stays at the lake, they get grimy and you don't want that on your seats. Since you tow, yours probably stay really clean. Much different when they are in use for the whole season and literally protecting the boat 24/7. The boat and dock are constantly touching them as well as the water. untying them and storing them while we are out is a pain and not needed.
  10. The S238 Feeback thread

    gotcha. Here is a video I shot with my drone. I was DRIVING and flying the drone at the same time so excuse the bad footage.(It was tough to do) Only me driving, and my wife and kids in the boat.(My wife is probably 120 and my kids are both less than 50lbs) The wake was pretty clean. board he was riding is 6'1. Plenty of length on the wave. https://www.skypixel.com/videos/look-at-this-amazing-piece-i-shot-with-my-mavic-pro-909eefe7-3425-43b7-bd0b-5e30f628c6ff
  11. The S238 Feeback thread

    I'm at 11.1. Never really experimented with a faster speed. Might make the wake cleaner but I was happy with my settings so once I was surfing consistently, I left it alone. H20 also lists his boat instead of using the surf system. I tried that as well but didn't work for me as well and my wife can't drive the boat like that.(She complains, which ruins my good time. ;))
  12. The S238 Feeback thread

    Here is another. I was on a 6'1 ocean board though. We had a lot of fun switching to this board a lot this summer. My kids always yell "fire hydrant!". It's not that easy for me. I probably only pulled it off 3 times. The other times I ate it. haha
  13. The S238 Feeback thread

    I've gotten it like that as well H20 but most days there is a decent amount of wind and chop here. (And a ton of other boats) I stopped worrying about it. It really makes no difference. Size matters. I have the 409. I think it was only an extra $700 so it was a no brainer.

    Yes! Southshore is mine and that is the lake I am on ALL summer! I will say that place is awesome. Not sure how many hours away that is for you but it's worth the trip. You can call and talk to Matt and ask him what he has. He may have deals on a 17 or a 16 right now that are left over or trade ins from people who bought a bigger model. I know they have boats on their lot. If your range is 60k, you may want to look at the s226 or s224. I'm not 100% sure but a NEW s226 or s224 will probably be in your price range. Call southshore and ask for Matt. They are passionate about getting you on the water and they aren't looking to rob you at all. He did a lot for me and made it easy. He'll also take you out on the water as many times as it takes for you to learn the boat and to surf. He'll run numbers for you over the phone and get you to your budget. He is on here but not often. @South Shore Marina NJ Let me know how it goes!
  15. Used Market

    Where are you from? Have you searched for the nearest cent/supreme dealers to you? I'd start there(maybe you have done that already). I'm on the east coast(Jersey) and surf boats and dealers aren't a big thing. I happened to have a supreme dealer on the lake I am always at but they are the only one near me. I believe the next closest is about 3 hours away. I have a 2017 s238 and I couldn't be more pleased with it. Also, depending on where you live, the price of the boat could be VASTLY different, even on used models. Since you have time, wait it out and keep looking. If you need to drive 12 hours to pick it up and save 10k, go for it.
