Axis Wake Research – A22 2015

Loudon, TN | August 27, 2014 — A completely new boat from the hull up, the 2015 Axis Wake Research A22 is a total redesign of the original A22, the very first Axis model to hit the water. For 2015, the revolutionary towboat that forever changed the industry by getting more people on the water in true performance boats—at a sweeter price—has been reimagined bow to stern.

Monster wakes and waves come standard with the all-new A22. With a new wake-and-wave-maximizing hull, this aggressive 22-footer is built to create the perfect playground for wakeboarders and wakesurfers of all skill levels. And with Surf Gate, you can ride a customized wave and easily transfer from side to side.

Axis and Malibu CEO Jack Springer is excited to be debuting the all-new A22 at Orlando’s Surf Expo on September 4th. “With the ongoing evolution of Axis, we felt it was time to take the A22 to the next level,” says Springer. “We’ve had so much fun with this boat. The insiders who’ve gotten to see it and drive it just can’t stop talking about it.”

Top pros go after this boat for its perfect, solid wake, but its clean lines and aggressive styling don’t hurt, either. The A22 boasts a striking exterior, with sharp new hull graphics and three new metal-flake gel color options, but it’s also plush and roomy on the inside, with a 102-inch beam and comfortable, upgraded vinyl seating for as many as 15 people. For 2015, the A22 features the new AW15 Tower, a new interior, deeper storage, walk-through bow, and Livorsi shifter. Upgrade options include Zero Off GPS Cruise and high-fidelity WetSounds speakers and amps.

Axis has seen explosive growth in the watersports industry since its 2009 founding, reaching sixth in market share within three years—and showing no signs of slowing down, sitting in the number-four position as of June 2014. Together, Malibu and Axis easily lead, commanding over 35 percent of the North American market.

Contact your local dealer to test-drive the all-new A22. Axis Wake Research is centered on you—and built to make waves.

Plastic Playground – Hybrid Wake Mag


Jonel Cohen takes the Plastic Playground title with Nico von Lerchenfeld being crowned King of Vert at the same time. Despite breaking more boards than anyone else in practice, Jobe rider Jonel managed to keep his board in one piece for the final. While Nico went against the best vert riders in the world and came out flying with the biggest method we have ever seen out of the top of the pipe.
