The A24 is practical, functional and has a no-nonsense approach, which makes it pretty enticing to someone whose primary focus is to ride. It’s essentially the utility vehicle of wakeboats.
To be honest, we’re not really sure how Axis did it, but the A24 seems to wakeboard and wakesurf well right out of the gate. We weighted this boat down with stock ballast and simulated close to a full load of friends, and the wakes were unreal. Typically, the surf wave on a boat this big is long and super mellow, but Surf Gate allows for the wave to peak up and gives it the perfect shape.
The A24 is a great option if you’re looking for something that performs well and you don’t need every single bell and whistle you find on boats twice the cost. While you might sacrifice a bit in that department, the styling of the entire Axis line has not been compromised and, being the larger of the boats in the Axis line, this one has plenty of room for a bunch of people. If there’s one thing for sure, each one of the Axis models will deliver awesome surf waves and great wakes.
