Dale credits much of the wave’s awesomeness to TAPS 3, Tigé’s surf system that consists of three adjustable plates. Based on their orientation, these plates create powerful and clean waves on either side and allow for speedy three-second transfers. We were impressed that the TAPS 3 Surf System comes as a standard feature on the R21, a budget-friendly boat. It’s a must-have if you want easily configurable, high-level surfing performance. With TAPS 3, you’re getting one of the most progressive surf systems on the market today, without having to break the bank. Whether you’re talking about length, height, steepness or push, this wave is outstanding across the board, Dale says.
