Maximize the ballast system on your 1999-2002 Super Air Nautique wakeboard boat.


Looking for an easy to way to improve the wakesurf and wakeboard wake behind your 1999-2002 Nautique Super Air Wakeboard boat? Our TankBuster kit makes it SIMPLE to increase the capacity of your ballast system by over 500 pounds per side! You've discovered wakesurfing, now find out what it's like to surf with a monster wake; you'll have more fun, laugh harder, learn more new tricks, and realize how easy it is when you have the right gear.

This custom made package includes everything you need to replace the 200 pound hard tank that came in your boat with up to 750 pounds of additional wakeboard ballast for the ultimate wake, and our pre-fabricated connections are designed specifically for your boat, so it's as simple as plug and play.

Be on the water sooner Less Time Waiting, More Time Riding
No one wants to sit around filling and draining ballast bags all day, which is why our TankBuster system integrates with the factory ballast system in your boat, so everything is completely automated. That means you can fill or drain while you're sitting still or driving, for maximum convenience, and more time on the water.

Actual times will depend on the bag size you select, but even the largest option we offer will completely fill or drain in less than 10 minutes, and all without you leaving the driver's seat.

Installation Instructions: Step 1. Remove the factory hard tack from the rear locker. Be sure to disconnect all factory hoses from both the bottom and top of the tank. Step 2. Place the included Flow Rite Straight fitting (black with red collar) into the end of the fill/drain hose that was connected at the bottom of the hardtack. Secure with a hose clamp. Step 3. Locate the vent hose extension and place the barbed fitting into the factory vent line. Secure with a hose clamp. Step 4. Place the ballast bag into the rear locker and screw a male fitting into the rear bottom port as well as a port on the top of the bag. Step 5. Place the black quick connect fitting attached the hoses onto the male bag fittings and slide the red collar down to lock them into place.

Every boat manufacturer does things differently, which is why our factory ballast upgrades are designed to work specifically with a single brand.

ATTENTION: This factory ballast upgrade kit is sold individually. We sell systems individually so that customers can upgrade just one side of the boat for surfing if they would like. You will need to purchase two systems if you want additional ballast on both sides of the boat for wakeboarding or surfing regular and goofy. Contact us if you have any questions or need help determining the correct upgrade for your application.
