2012 247 surf wave


Recommended Posts

Guys this is my first post. Just got a 2012 247 lsv and am wanting to surf. Need to know what bags to get for the rear lockers and what else I may need.  Prob gonna just use regular pumps for the rest of the season and then plumb them into the hard tanks over winter. Any suggestions?

Biggest bags you can get, my buddy has the same boat, it needs a ton of weight.   The 750's will pop the rear plastic bins up when full, if you can afford the custom shaped wakemakers bags or get 750-1100's and pull out the plastic bins.   I plumbed in the Wakemakers Piggy back bag 750's for him, then we put a tube sack under the surf side seat and another tube sack on top of the seat, a mattress bag and that red fatty in the corner.  This is the setup for 2-3 people,  if 4-10 people in boat we don't fill the two extra sacs on the seats and just put people there.

On my 07 247,  I'm happier with a surf gate or manual gate.... don't need so many bags everywhere-  which makes wife happy too.  Right now I have a custom manual device until I have more time to make another SG.   Agree with above posts about using less weight in the front.  I weight it similar to my 03 23LSV, which had a homemade SG since 2012, but get much more from the 247.  As for your corners, you can also go for the wake makers LBS bags with 1" ports.  This was kind of a fun pic while surfing with the go pro.
