All new for 2014, the Axis A24 is a 24-foot version of the same tried-and-true, hardcore wakeboard template on which Axis Boats built its brand. And true to the brand's form, the A24 has amazing wake performance. Huge, meaty ramps and long, smooth wakesurf waves prove Axis is a rider-driven brand. At the helm, the A24 has a simple, effective dash. With analog switches and gauges, everything is in plain sight and easy to monitor. Stereo controls are conveniently located on the dash with a simple head unit, and available heaters for cold days fill out the dash's two remaining spots. For 2014, Surf Gate is available on all Axis models, and it increases the versatility of the line enormously. With an analog switch at the dash, you can swap sides of your surf wave almost instantly while you're riding. Another huge plus is you don't have to list the boat to one side — you can keep it evenly weighted after wakeboarding and take a surf set.
