Go ahead and judge me but this checks a lot of boxes. If it holds up the 3rd Gen of this boat in a 25' config. could be the true game changer. Awkward styling aside, I'm curious what y'all have to say about this.

I'm worried it will not function well as a smooth riding pontoon with that hull shape. The wake looked short and small in the video. I'm reminded a jack of all trades is the master of none.

True game changer would be a big ol pontoon boat that creates a party wave/bowl like when 2 wake boats drive side by side.

haha, had to figure that was coming. Is someone going to add ballast to a pontoon?

What's the hull material? looks like it was pieced together with a bunch of remnants

also says "effortless piloting" so it can't be a true inboard. although, they show inboard motor options?

I don't know about you guys, but Friends, Pontoon boat, Budwiser, BBQ off the side and surfing sounds pretty ideal to me.

Pontoons are popular. This makes sense for that guy who just wants a pontoon but his kids are hassling him to get something they can surf behind. It also makes sense for people who don’t want a massive tow rig but still want to surf. Pontoons are generally pretty lightweight. I’d take this over a Volvo forward drive runabout, but for $70k I’d rather have a used wakeboat. I get the idea I’m not their target audience though.

hahahaha, i saw this!! Not surprised a pontoon brand is trying to enter the surf market. Pontoons have become insane over the past 7-8 years. We've got a Ski Sanger for the shred sessions, and a Starcraft Pontoon for the post-shred sunset cursing.

Itís not even a pontoon brand. Itís a startup surf pontoon company! Theyíre not fooling around!

I own a Xstar that pretty much just Surfs nowadays, and I own a pontoon to move people around and hang out as they are the most comfortable people movers on the water. I totally understand were this fits into to the market, brilliant really. Best path to success is to find a hole in a market and plug it, this does just that. And for less than $100K and less than a similar Bennington that you cant surf.
