know when you’re ready to take it to the next level. The
realization hits when you’ve been wakeboarding behind the

V-drive is all about elevating wakeboarding to the next level, and
it proved its mettle at the 2002 U.S. Open Wakeboard Championship.

patented TAPS system, with adjustable wake plate controlled from
the driver’s seat, can crank up wake size even further by
sending the bow up and the transom down.

wakes that you’ll almost need a pickax and crampons to
those wakes and you’ll deserve a party. This 22V brings a new
level to that, too, with wide-open wraparound seating, oversized
40-can cooler, plenty of drink holders, optional cocktail table and
the killer Tower of Power stereo upgrade. Clear out everything else
— put the boards on the tower racks and stash the rest of the
gear in the front or rear storage compartments — then get the
