Product Description

black-powder-coat-wakeboard-tower.pngThe Big Air Vapor tower is an OEM replacement tower designed to bring OEM quality without the price.  With swooped styling, thick and rigid tubing, and an ultra polished finish, the Vapor tower is a thing of beauty. Whether this is your first wakeboard tower purchase, or you are a seasoned veteran, you are going to be happy with the quality and function of this tower rack. 

Universality and strength are two big selling points with the Vapor wakeboard tower. This tower can accomodate boats that range from 72" wide to 108" wide. The distance between the front and back tower legs 70" long and can mount to the top or bottom gunnels. The telescoping top section is what allows the rack to adjust in width and makes installation very easy. Each tower leg and crossbar is made from 2.25" diameter 6061 T6 aluminum which means this tower is incredible resistant to flex and is built to last. The aluminum construction and stainless steel hardware means this tower is rust-proof and designed to weather choppy water. 

Another great feature about this tower is that it collapses quickly and easily. The Vapor tower is designed so that a single person can fold it down in just a matter of minutes. Additionally, the tower will fold all the way down past the windshield height. This is a great feature for when you stowe you boat away in the offseason or need to fit under low bridges. 

Why do I need a wakeboard boat tower?

Wakeboard tower racks might seem like an expensive add-on for your boat. But once you've spent a season out on the water with a wakeboard tower, you'll wish you had gotten one sooner. Wakeboard towers were orginally designed to provide a higher anchor point for the rope to attach to. This higher attachment point meant bigger air for wakeboarders because the rope pulled up instead of down on the rider when they flew through the air.

Now, wakeboard towers are so much more than that. No longer is the wakeboard tower an elite wakeboarder tool, but it is now a general utilitarian device for almost all boat owners. Adding a tower to your boat is like adding an addition to your house - it gives you more space. Wakeboards, kneeboards, wakesurf boards can all be stored up in tower racks to free up a ton of room on your boat's floor. Additionally, with tower speakers and lights you have features that were never possible before. 

The Big Air Vapor Tower features:

  • Fits most boats from 72"-108" wide (No advanced measurements are needed)
  • Polished or Black powder coat finish options
  • High quality 6061-T6 aluminum tubing results in a strong tower that is lightweight

  • Telescoping top section makes installation easy on any boat
  • The Vapor Tower can mount on the side or on the top of boat gunnels
  • Tower stands roughly 5 feet from mounting points with a 12 degree inward taper
  • Secure design creates for a silent tower that will not rattle, creek or moan in rough water
  • Designed with finite element analysis structures to reduce tower flexure
  • Swivel rope head to offer free rope movement
  • Fully collapsible to near windshield height (10"-18" height above gunnel), in just minutes
  • Most biminis fit under this tower, please contact us about tower fit, if you have a bimini top
  • 5 year limited warranty
  • Mounting hardware and backing plates are included
  • Incredibly easy to install (typically 2 to 3 hours) at home

Q:
I'm worried about the tower leg landing points damaging my boat. Specifically, I'm concerned that the stress from the tower will cause cracks in the fiberglass. How do I know if my 20ft Bayliner Capri is suitable for this tower?
 
A:

Cracking near the tower legs is a valid concern, but can be easily addressed with proper installation of your tower. When doing the installation of a Big Air tower, the manufacturer requires the hull to be AT LEAST 3/8" thick. If the hull is not 3/8" thick, you will need to reinforce the hull. You can reinforce with flat sheet metal (aluminum or stainless), marine grade plywood, or even additional fiberglass. In most cases,1/4" thick reinforcement is more than sufficient. When reinforcing, it is best to cover a large area, about 6" x 9". We understand you are working with a small area and sometimes that large of an area cannot be done. Work with what you have to ensure you are at or above 3/8" thick.If you follow these guidelines, and Big Air's other installation instructions (included) then you shouldn't have any cracking issues.

 

 
Q:
Can I tow two inflatables (tubes) with this tower?
 
A:
No, as tempting as it may be, pulling inflatables with this tower is not recommended. Whether it be one or two inflatables, the manufacturer does NOT recommend it. Instead, you should tow inflatables off a back cleat. The tower is more than capable of handling the stress of towing inflatables, but to ensure there is no damage your boat's hull you should not tow inflatables.

Extremely happy with the product and the way it made my boat look. Took it out to lake and tested tower by wakeboarding and my 13 year old son was having trouble getting up on board, but with the tower he got up and boarded on his second attempt!
