220 Wakeboard Wake???

I have seen a bunch of early reports on the 220 surf wake but would love to hear a review of the wakeboard wake. 

Anyone tank this thing out and give it a rip. 

Would love to know how it compares to the 22 LSV /G21 / x22.

I would love to help you out as I have an m220.   I love the boat already have 75hrs on it.   I have made the wakeboard wake fully loaded but I am just not a good enough wake boarder to tell you much about it.   It was way too much for me so had to tone it way down for me to ride back there.    Wave looks very intimidating to me tall and steep.  I will have to step up my game if I want to wakeboard behind this boat.

That is a pretty good indicator :)

And this pic from the promo videos is fairly encouraging. Not sure I have ever seen a wake that cleen for that long.

Lol, I am hoping to get a ride on a demo boat but, if that falls through I may try to talk you into giving me a demo. :) Quick flight to Dallas is a small drop in the bucket compared to a 220!

Why would a dealer turn you down for a demo ride?

Not that at all, They dont have a demo boat yet and it is getting cold in Ohio. Dealer has been great! 
Dallas however is quite a bit warmer.

Why not just have your dealer arrange a factory visit?  I am sure there is a demo boat on the lot somewhere...

Finally, somebody wanting to wakeboard!  I’d love to know about the wake as well.  Video from the side doesn’t tell much of the story. 

Ya, the videos look good but no comparison to riding it.

How does it ride in the rough water compared to other boats you have been in?  My intuition tells me the M220 lines up with the X22 fairly closely.  That boat plows through the rough stuff.

It rides great through the rough stuff.   I have been out in some pretty rough waters and it handled it just fine.   Set the speed around 25mph and you are good.

@NAW, have you been behind the M220 yet?

We actually just got our first one here in AZ today.  I'll be unwrapping it and hopefully get it on the water by the weekend if I can squeeze it in.  Dying to get behind it, but customer boats come first around here.

Well, when you do, please post pics!

Well, my buddy demo’d the M220.......and didn’t wakeboard behind it (bum knee).  He said the wakeboard wake cleaned up nicely and looked like it would be great, but didn’t get to put a board on it.  
 

He did surf it and said it was great and compared it to a loaded 25LSV, which they had about 7 people on the M220 as extra weight.
