Australian Wake Boats

Postby custard » Thu Sep 29, 2016 3:29 pm

Looking at buying an Aussie Boat in the next year and starting research between Lewis Challenger 2280, Spyboat RX22, Matrix MVs and Skicraft XAIR. Main use is wake boarding and starting to do some wake-surfing. I haven't been able to find any direct comparisons and want to to know if anyone has ridden behind two/more to be able to piece together reviews to help narrow down the choices.

best thing you can do initially is look on youtube, but from what has been doing the rounds of the forum lately the matrix mvs is a clear winner from that list.

I reckon without a doubt go for the matrix MVS. Having said that I have had nothing to do with the lewis 2280.

But for sure the matrix is a better boat than both the Skicraft and Spy

MVS without doubt the most flexible and bigger boat. The boat is well proven over many years but the latest tower, surf tabs etc is an awesome setup. (Seen all others, though not ridden them all).

Agreed, Matrix for sure.... center mount expression is a great boat too... cheaper and easier to maintain if you DIY.

Depends what you you want the boat to do, The US boats are very good but the price is also very expensive, and the Mal's are built here anyway,
