1jeffgignac posted a topic in Centurion Boat Accessories, Electronics and ModificationsThe internet is awash with how-to's for DIY wave shapers that all more or less have the same fatal flaw......they are based on mounting bracket platform that cause a 90* angle. I tried two iterations (90* and 70*?) of my wedge with this platform unsuccessfully prior to trying a new design. Effect on the wave was awesome (regular and goofy) but the hard angle applies too much pressure to the suction cups and struggles to stay on for the length of a surf session. Riding through other boats chop really seemed to unsettle the suction cups. Pic below is my original design with standard 90* angle. No pictures of the 2nd iteration. I'll be adding photos and process of my next iteration for a <$40 wave shaper with pictures, parts, and assembly directions. Who else out there has built one and what did you do better/differently? Floating attachments? Better suction cups? Etc.?
ok, so I went out for a demo today on a new 2014 Axis A24, after everything I have been hearing about Axis and surfgate I must admit I was a bit disappointed. I thought this whole thing about weighting the boat evenly sounds great since we surf both sides and hate having to switch all the ballast, but from what we tried today the wave just wasn't that big or have much push. we filled all the stock ballast plus a 800 plug n play in each corner plus about 700 up front and the driver, surfgate and wedge. our water depth wasn't the best between 17' and 19' but I believe my Avy would do fine at that depth, we usally run at about 27' in it. End result, ill be keeping my 05 Avy for now, or until someone can show me a better surfgate wave than I have now on my C4. has anyone else tried one of these, did you have better luck? did we need more weight? total we had close to 3000lbs.
