Malibu Skier For Wakeboarding

Recommended Posts

So I've been told skier boats make a smaller wake, so there not great for wakeboarding. Is this true?

Any older boat with a smaller beam may not be fantastic as compared to the newer boats but...some of the crew have the Skier and when weighted properly they seem quite happy with the wake. I had an onld Sunsetter and with 1600lbs additional ballast the wake was really quite nice.

:fingerwag: That's not right!

It's OK though. I got you covered. I have six different slalom skis that I am running / have / used to run. If you add in the cool old wood skis, the wake skis, the bootless ski, the recreational skis,...I'm somewhere in the mid-20's. :Doh: And can't figure out what the wife is complaining about. :crazy:

:lol:

Admittedly though, 3 pairs of wood combo skis are going to be used to make an Adirondack Chair. :thumbup:

Like the guys above said, when weighted the Skier does quite well. We run a Sunsetter now and the wake is bigger, but I miss the shape of the wake the Skier made. It had a great lip that really popped you off the wake.

Here's a good thread of weighting the Skier.
