The 22 VLX is an instant classic because it takes the best parts of the old 21 VLX and adds a little more length and a lot more features. Aesthetically, this boat has always looked amazing and it’s no different after the redesign. The classic traditional bow looks sleek on the water, and it doesn’t matter whether you pick the G3 or G4 tower, they both complement the look of this stylish and high-performing boat. One of the biggest changes with the redesign is the new dash. A center 12-inch touchscreen has your main functions, and the 7-inch secondary screen lets you tweak things, like your backlight brightness and throttle sensitivity. Surf Gate is an option on the 22 VLX and boasts a quick wave switch, a horn system that tells you when it’s going to transfer, and, new for 2016, it has the Surf Band, which you wear around your wrist to dial in the wave without shouting at the driver. Control the speed, side, and the wave’s shape with the Power Wedge.
