    Default had my 86 sunsport for less then a month, New pics



    This was the first weekend of owning it! I bought it to try out inboards since I just sold my speedboat, My plan was to cruise it to finish the year and buy a newer version but im really happy with it, Except I hate the old school steering wheel!

    Now I only had it in the water one time to realize that this older boat is more fun then any i/o I ever owned!! so I spent some money to make it more usauble! new tower, speakers, cd player , I just got board racks in the mail today! So far I surfed using my kneeboard as a joke but I pulled it off! Wakeboarding is a freaking trip behind this boat! My speedboat it got boring, Now my g/f is lucky to even have me in the boat! She became one hell of a driver!

    everything is original, Very low Hours, I knew the original owners since they got it! Fires right up, Runs Smooth! Power and handleing is very impressive!Supra Def knew what that was doing back in the day!!


    This is what gets to yank the boat around

    Welcome to the forum and welcome to Supra. You have had your first shot of inboards you will find it is a life long addiction you can never go back. Your boat is sweet what a great find.

    Actaully I got on craigslist and bought a ton of wieght bench weightsso that I could distribute the weight in different areas of the boat! lol It actaully works pretty dang good! Plus with my friends in the boat I was really happy with the wake and even more impressed with I tried surfing with a freakin knee board,

    Anybody got any recommendations on wake surf boards? Im going to purchase one for nevxt summer but to be honest with ya I don't exactly what style I want, Is there a big difference in beg and novice boards?

    As far as women on the boat, Ill post up some pics from last year in my celebrity status 201 tonight lol

    There are two styles here is a really good link

    I ride an INland Surfer 4-skim which is a skim board. I would look at trickboardz.com, and check out the general store at wakeoutlaws.com for the premium gear. TripleX is another cheaper brand you can find on ebay. Phase5 is great too but the Danielo pro is pretty advanced I would try a Prop or Oogle if you are 200lbs+.

    I use the rear ski locker and under the rear bench seat for hidden sacs (350 & 250lbs ea) for wakeboarding, but to get the best surf wave I add a 750lb sac on the floor.

    I have FreshAirExhaust.com to silence the boat and eliminate exhaust, it really helps a ton. I was using my little 4'5" skimstyle wakesurfer to belly board. I have seen people sit on the board, that looks like fun too.

    Here a sick video of an Inland Surfer rider ripping behind the WakeOutlaws.com Centurion Enzo this is about as big as wakes can get. Incredible riding.
