G5 Tower - side pull hooks


Recommended Posts

Loving our new 24MXZ, but curious whether anyone had opted for the optional side tow hooks on the new G5 tower?

We have a lot of young nieces and nephews who would love to get into surfing and I am curious how much easier these can make their learning experience or ability to get up?

Would love to see pictures of what they look like on the tower if anyone has pictures too.

It’s not the best picture. I’ll get one the next time I’m on the boat. We really use the side hook a lot for kids. With that and stern turn it makes it really easy to line up and get them started without being in the prop wash

That’s pretty sweet. I didn’t even know those were a thing and I’ll bet that’s way easier to teach beginners.

 

Just realized that takes the place of a board rack. May have to rig up our own assembly

Thanks for the picture SoonerLSV.

That's exactly what I was looking for.  Did you order yours with that or purchase after the fact?

You are welcome and we ordered it with it.

We just tied the rope around either side of the tower for newbies until they were available as an option for the G5.

I have them on our tower. Really like them for getting the less experienced riders up, but the rope does tend to get caught in the rack more often then it did on my G3.5 with the Uptice option. 
Uptice is offering side pull points that are incorporated into there flag holder as well for the G5 now as well.

Those Uptice versions may kill two birds with one stone!

I was considering a flag mount or two from Tower Flags, but these look even better!

Appreciate the information...
