This is a fun, versatile wake that will suit a variety of riders, especially because of how customizable it is. It’s a very comfortable wake that is great for progressing your riding. With a moderate transition it is not intimidating or hard to get used to. The wake stays consistent, whether you’re taking a mellow cut or edging in really hard. You can feel confident edging in and knowing it’s not going to crumble on you. The Malibu 22 VLX is good for beginner all the way to advanced riders because of how big it can get with ballast and the Wedge, along with how much the Wedge can customize the shape. Overall the 22 VLX is a solid wake that most riders will have a lot of fun with while out on the water.
