We ride on a very choppy lake in Iowa. When we originally started surfing it was a huge learning curve figuring out how to drive and what times we can go. So at first, yes we took on some huge waves, anyone in the bow would get soaked. Worst one had a couple inches of standing water in the boat one evening when it was windy and too busy and that was when we stopped riding in not ideal conditions. So now we surf at 6 a.m. until other boats come out, and in the evening after everyone else is off the water and we no longer have any issues. The low bow gives us so much more room for activities behind the 45.

Question for X45 owners with GSA. During our time with an X45, we have listed the boat to one side, and not been happy with the wave. Then got the Mission Delta and since it was so much better, were extremely happy with the wave. Then rode another friends supra with GSA, and his wave is incredible. My question for you guys is first, has anyone one gone from a basic tab like Mission Delta or Nauticurl to GSA? If so, what was the result from before and after. Does it make the wave taller? Longer? Wider out to the side? Please provide all the details. We love our boat and talk about keeping it for a long time. How much would we benefit from upgrading our setup from the Mission Delta to GSA. Thanks in advance!

I havenít experienced it myself, but itís worth noting that GSA was initially developed on a X45. GSA founder Ryan has (and I think still has) a ~2012 X45 which was his test bed.

GSA ends up being a better wave then suck gates once you get it dialed in on an X45, it will be probably 25% taller and longer then the suck gate setup. Then there is the added convenience and being able to do transfers that makes it a significantly better setup in the end of the day. Might take a bit of effort to get it working 100% but it's worth it once working properly.

Traded in the 45 for a ‘19 star this week. I’ll post some farewell pictures.

Also I’ll have a few items for sale if anyone is interested feel free to PM me.
Teak swim platform. Needs refinishing is pretty weathered.

Legendary! Always loved your X45 and the story behind it! Love that F250 as well, is that black or a grey color?
