eye of the beholder

(PHOTO: GARRETT CORTESE (CENTURION Fi25))A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it can cost a heckuva lot more than a thousand dollars to produce. By the time we fly in a crew, charter a helicopter and pilot, hire a model or professional athlete—as we did for this month’s cover featuring professional wakesurfer Ashley Kidd—feed everybody and house everybody, well, let’s just say that enough money is spent to cover the purchase of an entry-level PWC, a three-cylinder outboard engine, or a large, touchscreen multifunction-display chart plotter. What do we get for that outlay?A magazine’s cover photo serves as its calling card. The image must tell the story of what’s between the covers and must do so in an instant. For this, our Watersports Issue, we chose Centurion’s Fi25…

shaun murray, professional wakeboarder

What boat and board did you learn to wakeboard on?I’m not sure of the year, but it was a TriHull Galaxy. If you search a little ways back in my Instagram feed, you can see me sitting in it. My first board was the Skurfer Rage 1988.You’ve put out 23 pro-model boards with Hyperlite in your career. Do you have one that really stands out?It’s been 26 years with Hyperlite and 23 pro models currently. It will be 24 in 2020. The Bug board, from 1998, was the first big change when I wanted my board to be a lot wider, which allowed a much more free-flowing rhythm and style. Up to that point, our boards were a little too aggressive and ski-like. I love skiing to this day, but…

O’BRIEN8-SECTION FLOATING SKI COMBOTHE PULL: The standard ski rope should be 75 feet in length, but getting a basic one comprised of sections lets you adjust the line length to individual rider preferences. Ski ropes are typically made of polypropylene, and should have a little stretch to allow for slalom riders to make sharper cuts around course buoys.THE DRAG: Stretch needed for skiing is not desirable for wakeboarding.PRICE: $35.99; obrien.comO’BRIENPROP HANDLE WITH FLAT SPECTRATHE PULL: Wakeboard ropes typically run between 60 to 80 feet to get the boarder into the sweet spot for launching from the wake. Serious wakeboarders use a rope made from Spectra, which has no stretch so it helps the boarder accelerate into the wake and ramp up for tricks.THE DRAG: No-stretch doesn’t work well for skiers…

viking yachts valhalla boatworks 37

Viking Yachts has debuted a whole new company named Valhalla Boatworks, and the first three center-consoles in the company’s V-Series measure 33, 37 (pictured, right) and 41 feet in length.The V-Series utilizes Michael Peters Yacht Design’s patented Stepped-V Ventilated Tunnel running surface that reduces drag while increasing speed, stability and efficiency. “It’s the most advanced and proven stepped-hull design in the world,” says Viking design manager David Wilson. Viking’s lineage is easy to see. Proud bows, gently sloping S-shaped sheers, double forward chines, helm pods, raised toe rails and mezzanine seating represent some of these hallmarks. The combination of Viking Yachts and Michael Peters Yacht Design finds the Boating staff eagerly awaiting the opportunity to sea-trial these new boats, which are slated to debut in the fall. Below are specs…
