Rip Tide™ 5.0 Surf System

Rip Tide™ Surf Tabs
  • Our NEW surf tabs are 2x bigger and 5 x stronger than competing manufacturers who bolt their tabs to fiberglass transoms.
  • Re-engineered with purpose – these NEW surf tabs are bigger, stronger, and they displace up to an additional 2,000 lbs. of water.
  • Each tab has two fast-acting actuators that increase the speed and strength of the tab, creating lightning fast transfers.
  • Surf Tab Intelligent Disengagement is an automatic safety feature that disengages the tabs when the boat reaches non-surf speeds.
Quick Wake™
  • Pavati’s NEW dynamic trim control system produces a very clean wave by engaging fast acting interceptors that redirect the flow of aerated water (aka wash) created by the rotating prop.
  • Aerated water negatively impacts wave performance, and the Quick Wake™ redirects the bubbly water in a downward directional flow, far away from the wave.
  • The Quick Wake™ moves water in a downward directional flow from the transom that allows surfers to customize how steep they want their wave.
Quick Plane Trim Tab
  • The Quick Plane Trim Tab comes into play when surfers want to fine-tune the shape of the wave.
  • Auto Launch is a feature that instantly corrects bow rise, enhancing driver visibility when a rider is in tow.
  • Easily fine-tune from the throttle; drivers can manually bring the bow up and down while cruising in any water condition.
Surf Screen™
  • Live boat data such as boat speed, is embedded in the transom so surfers and wakeboarders can have live access to boat speed.
  • As a boarder, knowing the speed of the boat is extremely important to the quality of ride you will get.
  • As a boat captain, you will not have to interpret confusing hand signals and upset riders.
  • Boarders can feel more confident with novice drivers to maintain optimal riding speeds.
Subfloor Ballast
  • AL 26: 5,988lbs AL 24: 4,888lbs (subfloor and additional ballast max capacity).
  • Heliarc welded Hard-Tank Subfloor Ballast system (where other ballast systems use plastic tanks or bags that are hidden with wood or fiberglass).
  • Pavati’s gravity fed ballast system fills in 90 seconds and empties even faster.
  • Quicker fill time. Quicker drain time. No moving parts to fail. No concern for faulty or failing noisy pumps.
