Boat Build Series

Mastercraft X2

We take one of the most popular ski / wakeboard hull designs of the 21st century and make the perfect wakesurf boat! Follow along our DIY series of videos and see the results in the final video.

You Don't Need To Sell Your X2 And Buy A Surf Boat

The boats of the early 2000's were designed for skiing and/or wakeboarding, nobody was designing a boast for surfing. That doesn't mean that you need to sell your boat and get a brand new surf boat. It also doesn't mean you have to pay somebody a ton of money to build out your ballast and install a built-in surf system. In this video series we will teach you to install your own built in ballast system to increase the size of your wake at the push of a button and with the SWELL Wakesurf Creator Slim H3X Plus you will be absolutely astonished at how well this 2006 Mastercraft X2 surfs. This same technique for installing ballast isn’t unique to the X2 either, the location of the pumps and thru-hulls may change, but you can use these videos (or our other video series) to learn how to install ballast to any inboard boat. 

In this series we also take you through the process of adding underwater Liquid Lumens LED lights, Gatorstep flooring, and a new Fusion stereo.
