    Videos like these are great but fake news. This last year my Moomba took 3rd place at surf fest, side by side riding then a vote from the public. Poor Axis has broke down every year and never makes it to the end on day 2.

    Default Wave comparisons

    If the AXIS video was put together by AXIS, I expect bias. Of course they play it at the boat show. Marketing 101.

    I shopped bu and axis and was largely unimpressed.

    Axis was plain boring and frankly had never seen such poor gelcoat, fit and finish. The only worse interior fitment was Centurionís Fi series, although had perfect gelcoat.

    Bu had lots of gadgets, but felt more flash than quality. Plus everyone in my area owns a BU LSV yawn.

    You know, they say the wedge provides 1200/1500 lbs of "ballast" but I would guess this is at wake speed, not surf speed. I don't know enough about foil hydrolics to guess how much "ballast" you get out of it at 11mph. The nicest thing I see with the wedge is take off mode for more lift.

    The guys on the MC and Nauti forums are also getting a laugh from the BU marketing.

It's real easy to demonstrate how BAD a wave can be on any boat.
    I've never been in or behind an axis. but in 100% fairness, all i've heard is they do put out a nice surf wave stock.
    I agree w/the, they're scared, comment. SC is killing it.
    Zero regret/buyers remorse.... period.
    that's funny you said that because that was the first thing i noticed as well that the Axis is always up front. I am taking a photography class right now and just learned the principal of "forced perspective". Basically it means that if you want something to look bigger than it is, then you put it in the foreground and it will make everything else in the background look smaller.

    All the issues I noticed with the 18 Axis interior have been rectified in the 19.
