Supra Launch SSV Gravity Games Edition
Recommendation: Hard-core Wakeboard
Last summer's Gravity Games served as a rigorous test drive for this special edition of Supra's top wakeboarding boat, the Launch SSV. Star riders put it through its paces on a 10-foot ramp, 30-foot rail and A-frame rail in Cleveland's choppy North Harbor.
This boat's performance is unquestioned, but the icing on the cake is the styling and decals that make it a perfect replica of the official tow boat used in the Gravity Games. The blue-and-black gelcoat comes plastered NASCAR-style with corporate logos – Indmar, Vortec, Kenwood, Cingular, Sirius. Riders can look like pros even if their only “sponsors” are Mom and Dad. The swept-back tower with matching blue Bimini top, board racks and speakers pump up the cool factor. And of course, it comes standard with wakeboarding enhancers including the hydraulic wake plate, new three-bag ballast system and convertible rear stadium seating, all tools for getting you to the Gravity Games.
The Gravity Games showcased what's possible with these monster wakes: double half-cab roll and double front-flip off the double-up, frontside batwing, half-cab method and more. So not only does the Launch SSV Gravity look the wakeboarding part with its official Gravity Games insignia, it acts the part. Rear-facing stadium seating puts the rider and this macking wake right in the spotlight. Smooth ramps with perfect transition accommodate your toughest moves. The ride inside is just as rewarding – plush and stylish wraparound seating will keep your crew jar-free as this proven hull design punches through double-ups with ease. With the Gravity package, you truly get the ultimate wakeboarding experience.
