We tested the A24’s surf with three aboard and a set speed of 11 mph. The pocket was incredibly long, and the face of the wave had a ton of steepness and power to it. From the start, it was easily configured and tweaked to our liking. The wave behind this A24 was big and clean thanks to its wake-shaping hull and the surfing features it shares with the hulls of its big-sister company, Malibu Boats. Like all Malibu models, the Axis A24 can be equipped with Surf Gate. With Surf Gate, the A24 creates a huge, consistent wave that has a ton of push and oceanlike power, and it’s equally impressive on each side without having to move around weight. For wakeboarding, the Autoset
Wedge, a hydrofoil, helps shape sizable wakes without any input from the helm.
