With its unique Tapered V hull, which pinches in toward the transom to allow it to sink into the water more easily, the ZS232 puts out large, symmetrical wakes and waves that can hit the pro level in terms of size and rideability. With eight separate ballast zones, all controlled from the touchscreen on the dash, it’s easy to customize the riding experience. A lever behind the steering wheel controls the Stinger Wake plate, which further customizes the characteristics of the wakes and waves. If you have a beginner who wants a more mellow ride, set the plate around 80 percent. If you’re more advanced and looking for size, set it around 30 percent. The QuickSurf tabs on the ZS232 are designed to work specifically with the Tapered V hull, and that shows when you’re on the water. The system is easily engaged and switched via the touchscreen, allowing surfers to transfer from one side of the boat to the other without worry or waiting.
