Supra’s first wakeboarding model, the Launch 21 remains true to form this year as a high-performing wakeboarding direct-drive powerhouse. Its classic deep hull helps the Launch 21 churn up choice wakes, and the standard features, which include a triple ballast system, tower with swivel board racks, hydraulic wake plate, huge storage areas and deep freeboard, are guaranteed to impress even the most discerning wakeboarding posse.
Feel free to load the Launch 21 with fat sacks in addition to the factory ballast because this ride bears weight very well and will create wakes large enough to please intermediate and even some advanced riders. Dial the standard wake plate almost all the way down for recreational ski sets and softened wakes at 15 off, 30-32 mph.
If you list responsive handling right up there with stellar wakes, look no further than the Launch 21. This boat offers the best of both worlds — intermediate-sized wakes and the responsive handling of a direct-drive.
