Want to surf instead? Malibu’s patented Surf Gate, a set of twin vertical tabs that lie adjacent to the swim platform, shape the wake for a clean, powerful and eminently surfable wave. It doesn’t matter if you surf regular or goofy foot. When the port or starboard gate is extended outward, it disrupts the convergent point of water coming off the hull sides, further boosting and cleaning up the wake’s shape on a rider’s preferred side. Thanks to the fast-acting gates, switching the focus from one side of the wake to the other takes mere seconds and enables skilled surfers to work both the left and right sides without pausing to shift ballast.
