    As someone adding a surf pipe and heater to my 21 Makai I would highly recommend getting it done from factory. I kick myself for not getting them on the original order. Welcome and from one first time surfboat owner to another you guys are gonna love it. I'll also add that you should also plan to upgrade ballast after delivery. It's a relatively cheap upgrade with huge results on the primary function of the boat. You can rear bags that literally just drop into replace the factory rears and you have do is readjust the fill timer.

    Adding a surf pipe after the fact is a PITA.

    Congrats on the order and welcome! Its a fun process to order one the exact way you want it. Lot of options to look through and colors/patterns.

    I'm in NC so I think it will extended the season somewhat and help in the cool am's.

    Probably can build a better sound system aftermarket for similar $$

    Thanks!

    10-4 I'll make sure we order those. I hear 500 lbs of lead will make a huge difference with not much work. I assume the g6 pumps and flow 3 are worth doing on a new build?

    For sure- am told mid-may to head to the dealer and place official order.

    Absolutely get the G6 pumps for faster filling/adjusting/draining and I'd recommend the Flow 3 as well.

    Yep, those are two items that peeps ask for during resale.

    How large is your typical crew size?

    Lead makes a huge difference... we're up to 700 lbs in our Kaiyen and the wave keeps getting better.

    Picture from this weekend trying to burn off some Easter candy with just the wife and 2 kiddos in the boat. The more people you add, the longer and rampier the wave gets:

    Thanks for all the advice !

    Dealer called back today to ask if I was interested in a 22 Makai that someone had ordered and backed out last minute. Is available in about 30 days.

    Seems about ~ $10k more than the kaiyen with a few less options (heater , under water lights, etc.) but still nicely optioned with chill tech , premium wet sound package etc. 400 motor.
