Product Description

The Big Air X Tower is one of the sleekest and most stylish aftermarket boat tower racks out there. With its aggresive, long swooping style, this tower will turn your boat into a fierce looking and functional wakeboarding machine. The long front-to-back stance is more than just about style though. The long stance means there is a large "footprint" on your boat which makes it more capable to withstand high load forces. Essentially, it helps make the tower stronger. 

Collapsible: with just a few bolts and a few minutes you can have the tower folded completely down. The tower will fold all the way down until it is only sticking up 10-18" above the gunnels - awesome! You'll love this feature for stowing your boat in the offseason, or getting in your garage, or trying to get your boat under low overpasses while driving to the water. 

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.

  • Fits most boats from 72"-108" wide (No advanced measurements are needed)

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.
