Surf wake dialed in

Recommended Posts

At Shasta this past week we were able to spend some time playing around with our surf wake. In the pictures below there are 4 people in the boat and we have 750lbs in the rear locker and 500lbs in the center locker. I really life how forgiving this wake is and how far back you can ride it!

We sped the boat up a bit as he wanted to see how far back he could still "catch" the wake.

Another one, just like the one above.

If you have front ballast I would fill that up too and see what it does. We don't have any front ballast (just center and rear) and I think our boat could use a few hundred pounds up in the bow.

In the 1st and 2nd picture the wake should be the same (ie same speed same weight) so if they look different it is probably just the angle. On the 3rd and 4th pics we are going a few mph faster and have moved weight into the bow so he could see how far back he could ride.

Ohhhhhh. I thought maybe it was a weight issue depending on which one of you was in the boat. . .
