With its surf-friendly Volvo Penta Forward Drive, which tucks the Duoprop propeller set under the boat where a fallen rider cannot hit it, and a nationally advertised price of just over $35,000, Regal's new 19 Surf goes a long way toward bringing wakesurfing to the masses. But just how well can a 19-foot boat produce surf? As our day on the lake running and riding behind this new model proved, it can produce surprisingly nice surf waves, especially considering the boat also forgoes the expense and complication of an installed ballast system. The task of generating a surfable wave falls primarily to a pair of wave-shaping tabs attached to the transom, as well as to the trim of the Volvo Penta Forward Drive. With the appropriate tab deployed and a little fine-tuning of the trim, Emily Dale, of our sister publication Wakeboarding magazine, easily found the wave's sweet spot and enjoyed a solid recreational ride suited to all ages and skill levels. Impressive.
