I need to see one of these contraptions in action I guess.
It's just real hard for me to fathom something like this making a huge difference on the NG OBV.
And I reread the thread and nowhere did anyone say ANYTHING about it making them a better surfer.
a devil's advocate is someone who, given a certain argument, takes a position they do not necessarily agree with (or simply an alternative position from the accepted norm), for the sake of debate or to explore the thought further.
I guess getting the flow is like upgrading your stereo - just because it is loud and a lot of it, it ain't gonna improve your taste in music, but it enhances convenience.
as I mentioned...I need to see one of these contraptions in action.
It's just real hard for me to fathom something like this making a huge difference on the NG OBV that makes it worth the $$$$.
Hmmmm, now if we could get dimensions and photos - I bet we could do a "group fabricate".
The design is to make it easier to switch from one activity (wakeboarding) to another (surfing) without having to sit around and wait for pumps. It was not designed to improve your surf wake.
"It was not designed to improve your surf wake. "
Ohhhhhh. Got it thanks.
A $1300 (+ the cost of installation) device meant just for convenience - of not wanting to wait for 4 - 8 minutes. LOL.
I've also read (SC article) that states when using this flow thing, the swim platform is to be level AT or just slightly below the surface of the water.
So I guess anyone who installs the flow and who upgraded to the 750's are gonna be re-buying 400's?
So what you guys are saying is any surf enhancement is for convenience only. Ie. Surfgate, nss, swell, convex vx, cats,... I dont think so. I m sure you can get great waves behind any boat with enough weight. I just wanna do it with the least possible save money and be consistent. Delayed convergence works... the flow is a delayed convergence device. I m waiting to get mine on the LSV to see results.
Has noone read MMandleys review of the flow on his Mojo. Its worth taking a look at. He is getting a longer wave with his flow than with just listing .. and he uses 900's in the back and not the stock bags referring to slipperys comment.It might not have as big of a wave as slamming the boat with 4k weight but.. The benefits in my opinion are better fuel economy, not listing the boat and running more evenly, The convenience of switching from side to side, and better handling when weighted. So it DOES Enhance the whole surfing experience, including the wave.
