They are great, but sit a little lower in the water than the SunSport. Should be able to surf it, but I haven't seen it done personally. Good day on the lake will probably use 6-9 gallon gas.

Sits low but not that low. Higher than a Nautique 2001.

We have a 1988 Mariah and love it. We put a tower with racks, and bimini on it. The storage is ok but getting stuff off the floor helps alot.
Pulls great, with 8 on board and full of fuel we can wake board for 6 to 7 hours on 10 gallons.
Great boat, good luck.

mariah is a great boat you will enjoy it.. it does sit low but not as low as my comp so you will be fine... You can defintly surf, and wakeboard behind it just add some weight and that and the comp are awesome to skate behind with no weight
