Whaaaat!?! This thing is so sick. Having seen it in person and ridden behind it, I’ll say that it’s everything that it is cracked up to be. Read all about the new changes, drool over the photos, and get ready to sit in one at Surf Expo or your local boat show. Enjoy!


Completely redesigned towboat will be revealed 9/4 at Surf Expo.


Loudon, TN | August 27, 2014 — A completely new boat from the hull up, the 2015 Axis Wake Research A22 is a total redesign of the original A22, the very first Axis model to hit the water. For 2015, the revolutionary towboat that forever changed the industry by getting more people on the water in true performance boats—at a sweeter price—has been reimagined bow to stern.

Monster wakes and waves come standard with the all-new A22. With a new wake-and-wave-maximizing hull, this aggressive 22-footer is built to create the perfect playground for wakeboarders and wakesurfers of all skill levels. And with Surf Gate, you can ride a customized wave and easily transfer from side to side.

Axis and Malibu CEO Jack Springer is excited to be debuting the all-new A22 at Orlando’s Surf Expo on September 4th. “With the ongoing evolution of Axis, we felt it was time to take the A22 to the next level,” says Springer. “We’ve had so much fun with this boat. The insiders who’ve gotten to see it and drive it just can’t stop talking about it.”


Top pros go after this boat for its perfect, solid wake, but its clean lines and aggressive styling don’t hurt, either. The A22 boasts a striking exterior, with sharp new hull graphics and three new metal-flake gel color options, but it’s also plush and roomy on the inside, with a 102-inch beam and comfortable, upgraded vinyl seating for as many as 15 people. For 2015, the A22 features the new AW15 Tower, a new interior, deeper storage, walk-through bow, and Livorsi shifter. Upgrade options include Zero Off GPS Cruise and high-fidelity WetSounds speakers and amps.

Axis has seen explosive growth in the watersports industry since its 2009 founding, reaching sixth in market share within three years—and showing no signs of slowing down, sitting in the number-four position as of June 2014. Together, Malibu and Axis easily lead, commanding over 35 percent of the North American market.
