2016 Malibu ‘X-13’ SURF TEST

The 2016 Malibu X-13 does exactly what she is designed to do. She is already proven to be stable and fast in big open water, yet how does she handle the surf? Chris Castro of NLF-TV takes us to Texas where he will be turning, and broaching this kayak in a couple of unorthodox ways. How well do you think it handled the surf?

Pablo Gonzales says:

Did any water get in the hatch
My stealth use to take in a good amount of water but even then that kayak was super stable

Kayak Chris says:

You made it in! I was rootin’ for ya. I watched carefully and could see that you’d lean into a wave that catches you sideways, lifting the outer hull a little so it doesn’t catch and you put your paddle in on the inner side to stabilize yourself as you ride the wave out. Does that sound about right?
