Best surf/wakeboard under 8ft beam

Good morning MC'ers.
After a too long hiatus (10yrs) we are back on the water and in the market for a boat.

What is the best boat with a beam less than 8 feet for wake boarding and surfing?

Our boat house door is 9' wide at the entrance and the lift cables are 8'1".

We will do other things as well like slalom and tube, but the primary will likely be wake boarding & surfing. We will not be running slalom courses.

As a side not, I owned an '02 Prostar 205v and sold it in 2007 for $27k. I am pretty sure it would be worth more today. That is CRAZY! Just venting.

Back to the subject at hand. If there was an endless budget what is the best boat? If the budget was under $40k? Is it even possible to find a boat worth having under $30k?

The pickle fork X2 models and the new gen X10s both have beams less than 8 feet.

Is the X1 the same as the old Prostar 205v? The interior and hull dimensions look identical.

Yes the X1 was the 205 hull all the way till it's last year in 2011?

the 2006+ X2's are a great boat that can do everything and have tons of room and storage for a 20' boat.

Also if your budget allows then I would defintely look into a X10 with gen 2. You never hear any complaints about that boat.

XT21 has a 98” / 8’ 2”. Beam. He needs to be 96” or less.

X2 is right at 96”. That’d be a good boat for this situation-

Take a look at the NXT20... I just had a moment remembering a friend of mine had the same. 91" Beam
