22 VLX wakeboarding setup

Recommended Posts

SheDago

Hey guys,

I am setup to finalize my order and demo a 22 vlx on saturday and was seeking some insight on how to weight the 15/16 VLX for wakeboarding? I've found many threads on surfing but no luck on the wakeboarding.

Any insight would be great!

That has got to be a huge wake!!

I would consider myself intermediate and enjoy riding the new VLX at full bow, 50% center and rears, wedge in the maximum position (I like that hard lip)

Yeah, the new hull makes a difference. I ran the same setup in my 14, and you can definitely see the size difference between two. Even on just stock ballast, the new hull puts out a more beefy wake

I run pretty much the same as wakebrdr94 only 600Lb in the bow, It has been compared to as good as a G23, Not my words but a friend who rides both!

And that set up is with a 1235 prop and a 350. Yes, it can be done :)

Factory MLS, wedge all way down and about 300 lbs in each rear locker, one average size adult in bow and wakeboard wake was money. Even if you just run factory hard tanks, and wedge the wake is more than most can handle. Not sure what level you ride at. I have found loading with 750's in rear bags and 600+ bow weight really does do much to the wake other than burn a ton more fuel and make your engine work a lot harder.
