The Malibu Response TXI, featured in a double page ad in the opening spread of the latest issue of Waterski Magazine, is an epic tournament machine. Check out this little vid of the boat in action.
Matrix’s newest model, the SuperSport, is aimed squarely at serious skiers, as well as the typical family who likes to do a bit of everything behind the boat.
We recently had the chance to put the latest addition to the Malibu range – the Response LXR – through its paces up at Lake Hume, 10 minutes’ drive from Malibu Australia’s factory & headquarters in Albury, NSW.
Earlier in the year we had the invite from Malibu’s National Marketing Manager David Thorpe to visit Malibu’s state of the art manufacturing facility and headquarters in Albury, NSW, to check out the latest Response LXi – the legendary three-event tournament boat that is also the first choice of skiing families across Australia.
We are definitely heading into winter down here in Melbourne, but we squeezed one last trip in before calling stumps on the 2010/11 season – a quick venture up to Albury.
We nipped out the Victorian Nautique Dealers, Skiforce, to check out the Ski Nautique 200 which will be the official tow-boat for Moomba this year. Check out our video of the beast ….
We headed up to Lake Eildon in the Victorian High Country during September to put Rolco’s latest offering – the Paragon – through its paces.
We nipped down to Carrum during early September for our first boat review of the new season. On the water was the latest version of the XFI Genesis ski boat, and it was a welcome sight after months of dreary weather.
Ben Wilson was up on the Sunshine Coast during April and had a chance to catch up with Mick Watkins, the New QLD Tige dealer, to water test the all-new Tige Z1 21foot V-drive crossover wake/ski boat. Large V-drives have very much been the domain of wakeboarders in the past, but Tige – thanks to high-tech hull design and an innovative cavitation plate system – have managed to produce an all-rounder that can also produce a nice slalom wake.
Lake Eildon, up in Victoria’s High Country, might be a bit nippy in the middle of winter, but if proved a great location to put Spy’s TS21 through its paces.
