    Surfgate and Sukgate


    Kaneboats
    • Year: 2008 Brand: Moomba Model / Trim: Mobius LSV Device Type : Suction Cup Gate Style , Fixed / Manual Gate Style Surf Device Material: Starboard or a HDPE Control: Manual or Fixed (No Actuators) Cost: $0-$249 Platform Type: Fiberglass

    I made a surf gate that slips over the edge of the platform and attaches to the lifting eye with a turnbuckle.  It worked great and really helped shape the wave.  But, it wasn't switchable to the other side so it had limited use.  Also, my wife and daughter complained that the boat was very hard to steer.  On a lake it doesn't matter too much but on the river where we do most of our riding it can be dangerous if you can't turn or turn around.

    So, I decided to make a reversible sukgate.  Ordered up another cutting board and a shelf bracket and a suction handle from amazon.

    It works just as well as the surf gate but the boat is much easier to steer when it is deployed and it is super easy to switch from regular to the goofy side.  I attached a line and a buoy to it in case it ever falls off but so far it hasn't.

    Not sure how I missed this project since surf projects are my favorite... but well done Kaneboats.  Thanks for sharing!   Such an simple, inexpensive way to achieve dramatic results.  The look on his face says it all.

    Thanks!  He's the youngest of 6 and loves riding as much as all the rest put together.  Last week we forgot to throw the sukg8 in the boat and had to run listed.  I truly forgot how much difference it makes in the surf wave.  I won't forget it again.
