    There are lots of threads from surfers on here about the X22, 24 and Star's surf waves. From what I can tell you will love all of them.


    If money is no object, towing vehicle not an issue (if you intend to tow), and surfing is your primary interest, I would recommend the 24, although all are great. Transom seats actually is a decent demark point between them as they aren't on the Xstar.


    I surfed the G23 this summer and to be honest I thought it was pretty great. The storage on the boat really blows my X23 away.


    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but for me I think the G is very angular. Its like trying to make a boat look like a stealth fighter. I just think they are ugly as a result. In my case its enough to not go that direction. But that is ME. There are others who disagree and that's cool.

    Any X series should do the trick. Although i haven't surfed one yet i have heard they are fantastic. I have surfed the new Supra and its also fantastic. I would go MC or Supra and leave the G out. The G is a great boat, but the surf wave is pretty static.

    We are a family of 4 that loves to surf and chill for long on water sessions.
    We are buying a late fall special 2019 model year.
    A big tuneable surf wave is a must. Some wakeboarding, some cruising, even less skiing, and unfortunately a little tubing.
    Storage is important.
    Handling and drivability in calm and big water.
    Have not had the opportunity to surf any due to cold weather, eh.
    Have never had transom lounge seats. Seem very cool but my daughters loved to lay out on the flat transom of our recently sold 2015 X30. Loved that boat and wave was great to teach the young girls who are 14 and 18 now. Probably a dumb move to sell but wanted to upgrade and get fresh 5yr warranty.
    I welcome any advice, comments, opinions, suggestions, reasons why one is better over another, and recommendations.
    Leaning towards this one:
