What boat do you ride behind?

2015 Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSv with Surf Gate

What is your favorite part about the boat?

Besides the wake, I really appreciate the ergonomics of the cockpit.  I spent more time driving than riding(3 kids and my lovely wife to share water time with), that I can sit in the drivers seat all day and remain comfortable.

What board do you ride?

Phase Five Stacia Bank Pro Model and Liquid Force TC Custom

How long have you been riding?

Wakesurfing for 9 years

What is your favorite part about Wakesurfing?

It really fits our “outdoor lifestyle”.  We do it all: Waterskiing, Wakesurfign, Barefooting, Wakeboarding, Tubing and floaty skiing!  The sport is super social and build comaradeire. Where else can you take you family/friends out all day, in close quarters and still leave wanting more?

What message would you like to share with all the kids looking to take the next step in riding?
