Bow vs Stern Weighting Effect Wake shape

Recommended Posts

MystiikVLX

I haven't played around much with ballast weighting and am looking for some basic info.

When you add weight to the front/bow, how does the shape of the wake change?

When you add weight to the rear, how does the shape of the wake change?

I am referring to wakeboarding primarily at this point.

Bow weight usually will firm up the wake by adding more volume to it.

In my experience with more bow weight creates a ramp on the wake for malibus. With more rear weight it's a little peaker.

It also can play a factor In how clean the wake is. Too much rear weight generally requires more speed to clean up.

The general rule is 60/40 on weight is a good starting point.

+1 you wanna run more weight midship and forward to give the wake more pop. I'd go 60/40 with 60 being towards front if you run the wedge.
