Revolutionary wakesurf ideas and late night pipe dreams

Recommended Posts

Shastasurf

Anybody else have any groundbreaking ideas?  I'm thinking about a quarter pipe on the swim platform with a tow behind tabletopish spine. Ride up on to the spine  then come back onto the wave using the extra momentum to hit the quarter pipe. Endless jibs, slides, transfers.  Maybe u add foot straps and keep the rope? Wakeskaters would drool, lol.  Doing a wake transfer from on side to other isn't really that cool and there has to be something to revolutionize the sport.  Anyone have any cool ideas?  All ideas, comments and sh*t talking welcome!

Give the surfer a racket and the passengers a ping-pong ball gun?  That'd be revolutionary.

Basketball hoop on the swim platform. Maybe a snowplow blade for a wedge.

A large half cylinder shape attached to the underside of the swim platform to help shape the wave for surfing.  Have it on a track so it could be moved to change wave characteristics.

I've often wondered if there is a way to evenly weight a boat and somehow generate a spine like wake the could be surfed on both sides simultaneously.

Do ping pong ball guns really exist? This could take my indoor trap game to a new level...

This thread needs a hefty dose of @The Hulk

 

That guy has more crazy ideas than Billy Mays (before he coked out of course)

Kinda pedestrian compared to some of the other ideas but have a telescoping pole or something to get the rope back to the surfer. We throw the rope back to the surfer and retract the gate before turning around.  Throwing is not always successful depending on thrower and surfer.

Rave watersports should make an inflatable large scoop.. pull it behind the boat behind the surfer . When rider falls he gets scooped up along with his board and can re launch back into the wave! No more turning around to pick up the rider..

I think the next game changer should be you can order your boat with the transmission option that spins the prop in the direction you choose (clockwise or counter clockwise). This would allow us surfers that are regular to have the monster wave goofy surfers have.....

I think this is more of a problem on Malibu than other brands.  The waves on my G are nearly identical.  

 

In fact, the regular wave on my x30 was better than goofy.  Much better.
