No Malibu has ever had a RH prop; all are LH only.

I surf goofy (only one in my crew) behind my 99 VLX, with LH rotation and my wake without ballast is always cleaner than the port side wake. I have to add more ballast weight to the port side to clean their wake up for the rest of the crew than I do my side.

It is pretty easy to switch the rotation of the transmission on a MasterCraft.

I agree with jwl019, 07 v ride and most of my crew rides goofy (by design). Starboard surf wave is very clean, cleaner than port when comparing apples to apples.

:plus1: I am the only one of my friends that rides goofy. The wave is always better on my side than it is for the regular footers. I think it's because of the direction the prop spins.
