Help with wake surfing 06 23' Sunscape LSV without ballast

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone. I'm new to this board and need advice on how to create a good wake for surfing behind my boat. I have been attempting it for the last few years and just can't get enough or the proper weight in my boat to be able to surf without having to keep the rope in hand. I'v done sooo many searches on you tube, but can't dial it in. I do have the diamond hull and at this time only have 2 400 lb sacs that fit in either side compartment. My most common set up is 1 sac in the engine compartment and the other on the corner of my U shaped seating on the same side. I also put everyone in the boat in that back corner. My guess is I need more weight or maybe a custom sac made for this model. I'd really appreciate any suggestions.

Honestly a lot ore weight all positioned on the surf side. heck I put more weight in my little vride.

My thoughts are:

750-1100 in rear locker.

Tubes under seat.

400 on floor pushed to surf side.

400 in bow

Just to get you started.... :)

I have a 04 23 LSV on a diamond hull. My boat had no stock ballast. This is what I went with:

Port side

1600lbs custom LSV sack

750lbs vdrive sack on the side seat

400lbs vdrive sack on the ground

1000lbs bow sack. (only filled half way for surfing, so 500lbs)

That gives me a super sick wave. If I were you, I would get the custom sack for the locker, and under the side seats. Use one of your 400's in the bow, the other 400 on the seat.

Heres a link to the custom sack:

Awesome advice guys. Thanks so much. This is truly a great bunch of people on this forum. I looked at the Wakemaker sac and it looks like exactly what I need. Only question I might have though is that I am the only one in my family that surfs right foot forward and on the starboard side. I can see on the custom sac that it will extend all the way forward under the side seats up to the observer cushion on the port side, but I have the cooler under the starboard side seat behind driver seat. Will this custom sac work on the starboard side? Maybe I just won't be able to fill it up all the way. I'll take Ryangb advice and put one of the 400's up in the bow and the other on the side seat.
