I am also looking at a 2011 Wakesetter 23 LSV (instead of the Sunscape). It comes with 4 hard ballast tank and power wedge, but not surf gate.
Would I need an extra ballast bag to surf? If so- would this be a quick fill and empty electronically, or take some time?
We are coming from a Bayliner Capri 21 foot 225 HP inboard. Would skiing on the Wakesetter be better or worse than the Bayliner? Would it even be doable if only had weight in the front?
I am very much an amateur with wakeboats- really appreciate everyone's help!

I knew about the little wedges (pictured below). I remember that from your project. But you added ONE pair of factory Rev10’s, and as I recall, you ran into some figment issues with the hoop, no?
In my case I’d be adding TWO pair of aftermarket Rev10’s.... the figment / spacing concerns me. Aren’t the cans a touch bigger than the factory’s cans?
Perhaps my bigger concern is adding LED light rings... that’s the reason I’d be doing the aftermarket Rev10’s (I don’t think there’s a way to add LED rings to the factory Rev10’s). So I’d have to run narrow gauge wire up each side of the tower. I’ve done this many times on a G3.5. I even took apart a G4 once (it was a bit of a hassle). Have you taken apart the Gx? Got pics???
I was hoping to see someone's sweet new boat, but instead I see this. How does it fit in to "2020 Post up your new Malibu/Axis boats?"
i think the 3.0 diesel in a suburban would be awfully nice.
great interstate cruiser, for sure.
the 3.0 diesel in a surfboat would be pretty sweet, too!
thanks for the detailed list Nitrousbird.
nothing like (me) replying to a thread two years later!
I'm @ 175K miles on my '12 Suburban LT & it is running strong & smooth. Just put new Firestone Destination LE2's on it.
I'm now living in Asheville, NC and drive the truck back and forth to see family in MN & ND. Over xmas, drove the Burb 1,150 miles in a day from AVL to MSP. that was a slog.
i've owned a '04 Sunscape 21 with diamond hull for about 6 years.
Manual wedge, fully plumbed ballast (2) 750's in each rear locker and a 500 lbs bag in ski locker.
We also use a suction gate on the side and have a samson blade tower.
It's a freaking great crossover boat. We surf it, slalom ski, tube, wakeboard, you name it.
The 21 is just OK at surfing, but my kids love it and all three of them can go ropeless till we run out of gas. I think if you weight down a 23 with wedge it will be a really decent surfboat.
Of course, a $100K Wakesetter 23 will be better, but for me, the crossover (Sunscape) is really nice.
