We thought we'd take a sneak peek at one of the new wake boarding boats coming out in 2008. This boat caught our eye and whether the spring's first sessions will serve to train for the pro tour or work out those rookie mistakes, this boat has something special to offer.
Why It Has Our Attention
The 2008 edition of the Mobius XLV is the new-and-improved version of the 2007 model, and the designers at Skier's Choice concentrated on renovating the hull, updating the interior and generally improving the exterior and look of the boat. The new hull is designed for larger wakes with less ballast, which allows better fuel efficiency.
Pulling a Pro
A lot of attention was put into reforming the hull so that the wake produced was as textbook perfect as possible. The deadrise and rocker is designed to create the ideal shape with a balance of nice transition and vertical lip. This intricate engineering and attention to detail is sure to appeal to the advanced rider looking for a high-quality and consistent ride every time.
Pulling a Joe
The improved wake won't just appeal to the pro, but will provide great conditions to learn on. But if you're more of a novice, you and your family might be more impressed with the attention given to the interior and the smooth ride the Mobius XLV provides. It'll feel like you're behind a tournament-quality boat, while still giving everyone the comfort they need while watching you try to nail that wake jump for the first time.
