Best surf wave
 
Which new boat has the absolute best surf wave?

Across all boats, all brands?

or just strictly Mastercraft...

I have not ridden every other boat brand/model, but I have ridden most MC models.

The X-series is going to have the best surf waves. X22, Xstar, X24. They are all pretty close - you will find people who think one has a slight advantage over the other, but I think it just depends on the setup.

From my experience the X24 with proper setup is hard to beat.

Iím coming from an 2017 m235, itís Gona be hard to beat as far as wave. It was much better than the x23ís wave that year. Prolly will demo just curios which Mastercraft was the best and how the set up is to get the longest strongest wave.

Waves have significantly improved since the X23, as well as handling, attitude, etc.

I have not been behind a M235, M220 or M240 - so I don't know where those stack up against other boats.

I also like to take the overall weight into consideration... Comparing a boat like Centurion or the M235 that is running 5,000+ pounds of ballast vs. other boats running much less I don't see as apples to apples.

I think it is a great idea to go test the waters and see if you are lacking compared to other boats...so in that case, I would demo an X24, put 600 pounds of lead in it, which brings total ballast to 4,900-biased about 300-400 pounds to port side. Run 11.2-11.8mph (whatever your preference), surf tab should be deployed minimally to develop surf wave, I think around 50% (but its been a while since I was in an X24)...no center tab, all stock ballast full (even the switchback tank which by default is set to 75% full for surfing).

If that setup doesn't at least keep your attention, then demoing other MC boats probably is a waste of time, as the wave will not get significantly better than that without getting crazy on the ballast.

Subjective question. Go demo them.

Exactly.

I'll third that motion. But you also rode behind the wrong X23.

X22 or any X boat.

We just bought a new boat and demoed the x24 and the G23 Paragon. We went with the Paragon. Surf waves were close but we felt that the Paragon was a little better thought out then the MC.
