The wave is created with Lenco trim tabs like some of the competition and creates a steeper than average wave for a 23-foot hull. The pocket was medium size and probably a little smaller than you would get on a comparable V-drive-powered hull, but it’s certainly adequate. The face of the wave is steep and has a short transition that could trip up bigger riders with longer boards, but if you’re into airs and lip tricks, you’ll love the aggressive face. The pocket also has a pronounced lip at the end that some riders are going to like. It shows and tells them exactly where the end of the wave is, but some riders’ ankles are going to get caught up when they drop too far back.
