    Default Supra SL vs Centurion RI 237

    Anyone have any experience surfing behind both of these? One of these 2 will be my boat next year. We surf 75% and wb 25%. I will ride behind both before purchasing. Leaning toward the Supra, as I like their fit and finish better as well as great local dealer support. But the RI has caught my attention lately. Thanks

    I just spent a week in Lake Powell with both of these boats. I have a 2019 SL550 and my friend has a 2018 Ri237. They both are great boats, but I still prefer the wave that my SL makes compared to the Ri. We were there with 6 couples and I had multiple people tell me they preferred my wave over the Ri. My wave was a little taller and has a more defined lip. The fit and finish is better in Supra in my opinion, I don’t care for the dash of the Ri. Both are awesome boats, but I love my SL. Good luck with your decision.

    I demoed an Fi22. Not exactly the same as the Ri237, but I'd imagine they'd have similar issues, as they're the same hull. The wave of the Fi was unbelievable, but the boat would have been unusable for me because the bow rise was ridiculous. I had to stand to see over the bow. I'm 6'2". My wife at 5 ft would be unable to drive it. I had the bow ballast maxed out, and dumped some rear ballast, and it was still too high.

    My SL450 rides really flat. I have to work to get it to 9° pitch, and my wife can easily see when seated on the bolster.

    Still getting the wave dialed, but considering it's not yet, it's still amazing. I do think the Fi wave was a bit taller, and maybe a bit longer, but overall the SL is a far better, nicer boat.

    Thanks guys, the bow rise is something that seems to be common and would for sure be an issue for my wife.

    We really like it. Added 3000+lbs of additional ballast and it surfs amazing. Just ready to step up to a few more options, and I’ve never been a fan of the look of the boat. Best boat for the money IMO.

    haven't surfed either but crawled around them. it would be supra all day long for me.
    centurion will have a stellar surf wave but all of the boats I have been on really don't shine in the fit/finish department. supra has them killed in this area and you mention stepping up to a few more options, supra will fit that bill nicely..

    good luck with whatever you choose. new boat in the garage is a nice feeling either way.

    Just be aware the centurions draft 10” deeper than a Supra, I would have issues with a 38” draft at some of the boat ramps I go to.

    It can be an issue when you anchor off sandbars or shore, too.
