    SE and SA are more popular. SE was designed in 2019, SA will be on 2020. Lots of deals if you look around.

    Where is your location?

    Seattle/Olympia area.

    It would be great if we could get a 17 SA... that's of course if she meets the wake board needs & $.
    Compared to SG/SE surfing.. 16+ SA... blindfolded.. would I know the difference if set up apples to apples?
    I am finding that once you inch up to 50 years old.. its not a matter of can you pay for it.. its do you want to pay that much and potentially work longer.

    All will surf great. Sg/Se are bigger, take more ballast to achieve same size wave. But have more room. All on what you want. I personally have a 2018 Se and have 800 pounds of lead, and I love the boat. The more room the better for me

    Ok thanks! So surfing on SA sounds like its a go!

    Just need to understand wakeboarding at slower speeds... then I'll know if I have a potential option to the Mad Max.

    The Max did it at 16 and and was impressive at that in the conditions it was in.

    thanks again everyone so far.

    Right now, I am thinking if we consider an SA we'd be looking for a 17 model year for autowake.

    watch what years of SA you look at and water test them. some feedback that the early hull didn't surf that well and difference is night and day on the newer models.
    iirc '16 was the changeover.

    Yeah, 16 SA and up.. if you can find a 17 or 18, that's the sweet spot. I know several low hour 18s have sold for low 90s... but you can't go wrong with a brand new 19 Max and some upgraded ballast.

    I was in a similar situation as you for a year, realized at my age (inching closer to 50) it was time to surf. I played online looking at used Supra's but in the end I wanted to build the Max to my specifications and pick out the colors, plus warranty. It's a beautiful boat and we couldn't be happier. We bought ours at NWInboards and have been treated like royalty. Good, honest, patient people, as well as Bakes Marine.

    Ya'all make it sound like 50 is the death of aggressive wakeboarding. I'm 47 this year and I have no intention of stopping. I never learned to do inverts, but I still love to huck me a big air into the flats with a nice grab...

    It is when you have double shoulder surgeries for torn labrum - from wakeboarding and slaloming crashes.

    Don't get me wrong. I have medial epicondylitis and trouble with my wrists. And wear a brace to protect my ACL after a snowboarding injury... But I still love to fly... I just hope I don't have only 3 years left!!!

    left wisconsin at 48 2 years ago and left my wakeboard at the local goodwill. never to be strapped on again...
    I have not had torn acl's or shoulders or wrists BUT don't plan on having them. surfing is so much easier on the body and don't have to fight with insurance companies and doctors if I crash wrong

    tray- you have as much time left as you want but the odds of landing in a escorted ride to visit a person in scrubs increase with each candle added to the cake.
