  • Mastercraft not on "Best Surfing Boat" ??

    I Love MasterCraft and supposedly their build quality, but after seeing some of the surf Tab brackets coming off and not having a back plate, I thought I would just google best Surfing boats... and this is what I got...

    https://www.boatingmag.com/six-hotte...and-surfboats/


    https://www.wakeboardingmag.com/tags...esurf-boats-0/


    I never thought I would look at another Brand, and maybe I still wont but I never thought MasterCraft wouldn't be #1 or even on some lists...??

    I'm pretty sure they aren't featured in those articles because they chose not to pay to be featured in those articles.

        I canceled my wakeboardingmag subscription years ago. It didn't seem to make sense to pay to read articles that were actually paid advertisements. All articles weren't that way, but a lot of them were, and if it was a boat article, it was clearly one.

          Not a single repeat boat across the 3 lists, and Regal made the list?

            To me it seems like MC gets the label of being a skiers boat outside of the MC community. A couple of my SAN and BU friends have tossed that idea around which I thought was interesting. Those who have actually been behind the new MCs know better lol. I also agree with whats said above ^^

              Guess I should sell the X22 and step up to the Gekko.

                    Whatever it is that you do for a living, you're in the wrong profession!! Clearly you should write copy for all the boat mags!!!

                      As someone who golfs as well I am all for these types of articles, I always blame my 90+ scorecard on my clubs. Never dawned on me I could just blame my questionable wakeboarding skills on my boat. These articles are great affirmation that my lack of practice and physical ability are never to blame.

                        Lots of better boats missing from those lists. Many of the choices are quite comical..... Some are, in fact, great surf boats.

                          I cannot and will never understand internet armchair quarterbacking a boat purchase.


                          If you buy a boat based off reviews and not experience, you should probably just buy a Pavati.
