Suction up Anyone using this?

never used it, but looks clever.  pontoons may be too small radius to get a good suction though.

not sure i'd trust it without at least dropping a bumper between as insurance for when a rogue wave from one of those isurf-boats rolls thru...

We used it once at a demo day. It works really well until you get a random huge wave. It took most of the medium sized waves well, but the suction cups broke loose when a surfer came too close.

Same here. Also on the different contours of hulls it was hard to get them setup at times. If you were tying up in a for sure no wake cove/area all the time and had similar boats then they would work well.

Yes, I've seen this being used on large cigarette type boats in Lake Havasu, AZ.  Appeared to work really well. 

Yikes. Based on my experience there is zero chance I’d use them on boats that big. Honestly over the 22/23 foot Malibu's I would be hesitant. Properly tied fenders and dock lines are tried, true and proven.
