Why Malibu/Axis


In 2012 when Malibu introduced the revolutionary and industry changing Surf Gate™ it was just the beginning of an evolution in design, engineering and innovation. Malibu’s engineering team continued to integrate our surf system into multiple facets of boat design over years to come to create a surf experience like no other.


Integrated Surf Platform™

Malibu’s Integrated Surf Platform™ (ISP) includes proprietary innovations that generate the longest, most perfect peeling surf wave – customisable by size, shape and length to suit the capabilities of every rider. The ISP starts with performance hulls, quad tank ballast and swim boards tailored to each boat model. From there it builds in several industry-firsts, including the unique and patented Surf Gate that transforms a perfect wakeboarding wake into a customizable surf wave.


The Power Wedge II™ is bigger and more versatile than ever before and includes a lift feature

that allows the driver to get a fully loaded boat on plane much faster.  The Power Wedge II™ can add up to 450kg of additional wake creating water displacement and has 6 adjustment settings to customise the wake size for individual wakeboarder preferences. It happens at the tap of the driver’s finger on the Command Centre, or the wake surfer wearing the optional Malibu Surf Band wrist remote can adjust it right from the water.



Surf Gate™’s high-speed hydraulic actuators let you quickly shift the surf wave from side to side for regular or goofy foot styles. Surf Gate creates the most dynamic playground for wake surfing possible. Period. No competitor comes close to offering the same adjustability range.



Welcome to the future – make any wave you want while you ride it. Malibu’s remote wrist Surf Band™ allows for full control over your wave.


With the industry’s first and largest dash display, Malibu’s 12” touchscreen and optional Sports Dash joins the existing 7” touchscreen, enabling fingertip control of the ballast, Power Wedge III, Surf Gate, navigation, rider pre-sets, media and a variety of gauge displays.







Nobody knows watersports better than the people who live it. Designed, engineered and handcrafted in the U.S.A. and Australia by the same people who’ve made Malibu the world’s number one towboat maker, Axis delivers Malibu technology and quality with extraordinary value. We design Axis boats with direct input from watersports pros, the innovators and dominators of wakeboarding and wakesurfing who help keep us on the cutting edge of wake and wave making. Axis boats are unique from Malibu models, sharing their performance features in a user-friendly setting.


In every Axis model, you get the remarkable Wake Plus Hull design and Performance Surf Package (PSP) to create the best wakes and waves on the water, bar none. Since its founding in 2009, Axis has remained focused on function-driven design and watersports performance. Affordability has made Axis the choice of many looking for the ultimate family toy. At the same time, Axis has become the go-to brand for many stern-drive boat owners looking for the greater safety of our V-drive technology. In fact, more than a third of recent Axis buyers switched from a stern-drive boat.
