    Default Some wake surf videos...thoughts?

    Here's a few from this last weekend...probably the best wave we've had so far.

    It's an older Liquid Force Venture IIRC. Yeah, that was the best wave we've gotten so far. Hopefully we can duplicate it this year and get lots of riding time in.

    Okie,

    Please let us know what you are riding behind, position of ballast including #'s, and speed. Thanks man! I want to learn as much as I can before I try it this summer.

    89 Sunsport...the weight is set up as follows.

    400# bag under rear bench seat, ~half full.
    400# bag in ski locker, ~half full.
    2 350# bags in rear surf side...one next to the motor and all the way back towards the rear seat and one on top of it going onto the rear seat.

    We play around with front weight and I think I might have had a few hundred pounds front and center that day. We had 4 adults, 3 kids on the boat.

    We run around 10-12 mph...always sketchy on exact speed since no PP, but we typically try to watch speed and rpm's as well as wave shape.

    Cool! Thanks! That's very helpful. I have 4 sacs. (2) 540lbs and (2) 350 lbs. I think I will set mine up the same as you. Did you reinforce the ski locker to hold the weight of the bag? If so, can you post up some pics so I can see what I need to do?

    I plan on cutting out the plastic under the rear bench to be able to get one bag in there. It would be nice to get another one hidden in the ski locker.

    Kevin,
    Another key to your surf setup is making sure you're in deep enough water. In anything less than about 7' to 8' your wave is going to get mushy and washed out from reflecting off the bottom.

    Yes I did reinforce the ski locker. I also rebuilt the rear seat so it was stronger and more roomy.

    That's great info too. I do a lot of riding on the WI river which is mainly under 10 ft of water. Might have to go to some of the deeper lakes and play around a bit.
