2014 Axis A22 Review

Axis A22

The Axis Wake A22 was the first-ever Axis Boats model, and it’s still one of the best all-around, function-first wake boats on the market. The 2014 model marks the first time Surf Gate is available on Axis boats, which officially makes this the best A22 ever. Thanks to this wakesurf-enhancing system, you no longer have to put all your weight on one side to create the perfect wave. Just keep the boat weighted evenly after riding, and let Surf Gate shape up a wave on either side in seconds. Inside, the Axis Wake A22 is all about simple, sharp and functional design. There’s storage under all seats, with cutouts for airflow, and pop-up rear-facing seating makes it easy to watch the riding. The bow has plenty of space, and another pop-up seat makes it feel even bigger and more comfortable. The helm features a no-nonsense, stylish dash. Everything is there and easy to use on your first try. Analog switches and gauges are easy to see at a glance, and the Surf Gate toggle switch couldn’t be simpler. Axis Wake Boats is all about no-frills function, style and performance, and the Axis A22 embodies that mantra.

The Axis A22 is the best boat for you if: You want a stylish midsize boat that’s all about wake performance minus the high-end bells and whistles that can drive up price.
