Ronix 2013 One Modello

The 2013 Ronix One Modello is the fastest pro model Danny Harf has ever built. The 2013 Modello features a new style of rocker for increased glide-speed. What exactly does that mean? To put it plainly… you get to ride longer. The 3-stage rocker line of the 2013 One Modello gives it a great pop off the wake without sacrificing any glide speed.

Features:

-New round tail that allows the board to ride higher in the water

-Thin profile reduces swing weight

-Rail blends to a sharper bevel and a vertical sidewall in the tip and tail which creates additional contact with the water. 

-Simple bottom shape – the board lands with more natural forward motion allowing a cleaner design

-Simply put: the fastest pro model Danny Harf has ever ridden

The Tigé Convex VX reshapes the sport of wakesurfing.

Check out what Tigé has done to recreate and enhance the wakesurfing experience!

Extending Your Wave
The Convex VX is a fiberglass extension that extends the legendary Convex V hull. The patented extension flows seamlessly with the style of your boat, as it connects to the swim platform and is easily removable when necessary.

The Power in Propulsion
The center tunnel of the Convex VX effectively channels water from the propulsion system downward under and into the wave. Utilizing the power generated by the prop to increase the size, volume, and density of the Convex VX surf wave.

Less Just Became More
If you have a 20-foot boat but need the power of a 22-foot boats surf wave to land your fresh new trick, all you need is the Convex VX. Our device flaunts push, length and smoothness that requires less work on you and more focus on the fun– We improved so you can improve!

Your Wave. Your Way.
The adjustability is endless as the Convex VX works hand in hand with TAPS2 technology and the Convex V hull. The combination gives you complete control and capability to dial in your perfect surf wave on either side of the boat at any time.

Dimensional by Design
There is no need to detach the Convex VX when you are ready to rock the wakeboard as there is no effect. Once on plane, you’ll still get the great monster wakeboard wake the Convex V is notorious for.

Room to Recover
A primary benefit of the Convex VX is the ability to recover. With the amount of power, push, and the extended length of the wave generated by the Convex VX, you are now able to recover and regain your push further back in the wave than ever before.

Direct Drive Vs. V-Drive, From the Voice of the Water

We often times get customers come into Seattle Water Sports, that are confused as to buying a direct drive vs. a V-drive boat.

So lets talk about the differences of the two types of tow boats. The direct drive dates way back to the early days when having the engine in the middle of the boat made the wake smaller/flatter for water skiing because that is what was popular and desired in that era. Or a flat wake with a lot of pull from the V-8 engines and four blade props to get the water skier up fast. The hulls were mostly rather flat at the back and the beams were narrower for a narrow, flat wake that the skier’s loved.

Then comes the evolution of  wake boards and surf boards in the 2000’s and up. Now folks wanted to do both by putting a tower and adding fat sacks (water sacks) in the boat, to get a bigger wake for wake boarding and surfing behind the boat. This allowed a boat that still could be a great water ski and wakeboard/surfing boat, but was a lot of work filling sacks and making sure weight was distributed right.

Bigger Interior, heavy and wider body, rear compartment engine

Since wakeboarding and surfing grew in popularity because of its social setting and trend in board sports, and water skiing was becoming less popular; boat manufactures turned their designs to making more of a boarding boat with the engine in the rear of the boat, wider beams, and more deep V hulls. This made a boat with more interior room involving more people in the sports than skiing, but more importantly a boat with a bigger and wider wake to get better pop on a wakeboard and a taller wake for surfing. This also allowed the boats to be more of an all day boat if the lake got rough, because of the bigger interior and ability to have a surf session because of the ballast. These boats all have towers and on board ballast systems to create the ultimate wakeboarding and surfing boat that can be changed for each rider. The only fallback or short coming was that now the V-drive boats did not produce the ultimate water ski wake as they did with the direct drives.

So what boat style should you pick………simple, know the differences and pick the drive type that best suits your groups water sports needs. Come and check out what we have to offer here at Seattle Water Sports!
