Wake Surf - Response LXI

Recommended Posts

rbell14

Exploring wake surfing, looking for best set up to attempt this with my Response LXI. I have a wedge, looking for input on speed, where to add weight and overall best adjustments to attempt making this work with my boat.

We use the wedge and a wooden surf gate. 200 pound up front, 1100 pounds in the back and 200 on the right side to keep the fuel vent above water. We go 9 to 11 mph. https://www.wakemakers.com/fly-high-fat-seat.html.

Thanks for input. What is a wooden surf gate? I know what a surf gate is but is this really made of wood or the manufacture?

I also have a Response LXi ('08) and was wondering the same thing. That wave doesn't look like it's worth risking a swamped boat.

You just have to deaccelerate slowly so you don't get water over the front and back. Then wait for the waves to pass before turning around.

That water looks POO BROWN. @roeboat if you position your weight a bit further you won't be so tail heavy, and should be able to ride that wave much easier better.

I think the success of riding without over weighting this boat is surfer and board dependant.  Look for a large surface area board, i started a thread a while back about good board for small wave.  I might be my style but the surf style boards are much easier to generate speed to keep up with the wave vs a skim style (you generate speed off the fins with a surf style board, vs a skim where you wiggle around like a hula dancer).  I was able to surf ropeless for a long time with very little weight (350 lbs sac in the rear and three people), a wedge, and DIY suck gate. I've got a Ronix Powertail.

Here's my s***ty wake...but remember its a ski boat ;)
