First released in 2013 by Malibu Boats, Surf Gate was the first ever dedicated surf system on the market and is still the best way to create massive wake surf waves. By fastening the hydraulic tabs vertically along the transom on the port and starboard sides, Surf Gate allows you to control what side you surf on with instant ease. Extending either of the surf gates causes the wake-convergence behind the boat to be delayed on one side resulting in the cleanest, largest and longest surf wave in it’s class. No more switching ballast or passengers back and forth to lean the boat! Just sit where you want, evenly load all ballast tanks for added wave size and let Surf Gate do the rest!
Power Wedge has long been a Malibu & Axis patent that leads the wake industry in wake & wave adjustment. Optional on all 2019 Axis Boats, Power Wedge 3 allows the driver and rider to make their wakesurf wave tall & aggressive or long & smooth.. and everything in between! The hydraulic hydro-foil hinges from the transom of the boat and drags the running surface even further into the water, creating a bigger wave by simulating 1,500 pounds of ballast and capitalizes on the thrust coming off of the prop. Adjust the Power Wedge 3 into 7 different positions for your desirable riding surface! Use the lift feature of Power Wedge 3 to create 500 pounds of upward thrust to help a fully loaded Axis Boat plane without burning unnecessary amounts of fuel and unnecessary strain on your engine.
No more yelling at the driver! With Axis Surf Band, take control of your wave while you ride. Adjust the speed of the boat by increments of .2/MPH for your ideal riding speed, control the position of Power Wedge 3 to shape your wave to your riding and watch your riding surface change in front of your eyes. Surf Gate control allows you to switch from left to right with ease and allows you to time your transfer perfectly. Use the volume control to adjust the tower speaker volume so you can surf to your favorite tune without overwhelming those on board. It’s all up to you!
All Axis boats are specifically designed to kick up the best wakes & waves possible and that starts with the hull. Axis engineers their hulls to maximize the running surface of the boat to produce your desired wake or wave. With maximum ballast of up to 4,845 (including plug & play and power wedge), you can push the running surface down even further to create a wave that will leave you astounded. Although Axis boats are designed and manufactured for stellar wakes, they handle elegantly and with ease when you’re cruising around the lake from A-to-B.
All thriller with no filler; that’s the Axis way. Built in the same factory with all the same industry leading wake & wave innovations as Malibu Boats, Axis Wake Research is focused on you, the rider & customer, who values the core passion of water sports. Designed to simply create the best wakes & waves in the industry without the creature-comfort luxuries of a premium tow-boat, Axis specializes in producing the wake you want with no added cost.
