Malibu did not leave anything out to offer the new 21 VLX package at this price point. On the contrary, Malibu equipped this new boat with its full Integrated Surf Platform, including the wake-optimized hull design, Quad Hard Tank Ballast system, Power Wedge II hydrofoil and the revolutionary Surf Gate that turns a big wake into an endless, surfable wave. All of that comes standard, along with the renowned Malibu dual-screen digital Command Center to control it all.

Beneath its stunning good looks, the new 21 VLX offers the unsurpassed Malibu engineering and craftsmanship that ensure many years of reliable watersports enjoyment. Standard equipment includes Malibu’s famous G3.5 tower and a drop-in hard cooler.

Spice up that V-drive with the all new Ronix Wake Shaper!!

Wakesurf Shaper

Easily mounts to both starboard and port side for a bigger, cleaner wake on either side. With Wakesurf Shaper you can now get into the modern day surf game if you have an older boat, or if you have a newer boat you can replicate a tube rivaling your favorite break in the South Pacific.

In 2013, we launched a new brand - Eight.3 (one gallon of water = Eight.3 pounds).

We had 1 goal - make boating easy...



2 years after the inception of Eight.3, we have come up with something that revolutionizes the outside of your boat - The Wakesurf Shaper. This device easily mounts to the lower/back point of the starboard or port side of your boat hull for a premier surf wake on either side. We have tested from every aspect of boating - waterski boats, crossover boats, older V-Drives, newer V-Drives, - one thing is constant, this is a game changer. Never has there been this type of aftermarket device that can so easily be mounted to the side of the hull - that makes this kind of difference. With a built in handle it is easy to move to either side of your boat, and is best primed with some loaded Eight.3 ballast.



Every hull shape is different - some are mostly flat and don’t require a shim. Others have a step hull and require a 1” shim - other boats have a more pronounced step and need a 2” shim. Be sure to measure the furthest back/lowest corner of your hull to gauge what set up you need.
