Took a client out to try wake surfing.  He had a killer lip on his run.  Sometimes everything is perfect.

Okay, so am I the only one who thinks the girl in the knee brace looks naked?

2015, hard tanks full, 750s in back full, 600 bag in bow full, 11.4 mph, 3 clicks.  67Princess is about 5'5" for reference.  (on edit)  That said, camera angle makes a HUGE difference.  I'm looking at this picture, and the wave looks very meh.  But it is obviously looking down.  While there, the thing looks huge, and although I can't seem to get the length that some of you can, it is pretty long, and has a nice push and curl to it.  It is pretty normal to have four feet of height from the sweet spot (which is already at least a foot higher than the trough).

This thread could be awesome for newcomers.  I wish this data could be added to the boat specifications somehow so you could quickly reference there to get starting points for ballast setup.

I like that wave. I have demo'd a 25LSV (and many other boats). It was my favorite so far. Where do you put your lead?

Set a personal record in the VLX.  I had the bags loaded down hard but there was no one the lake and it as glass at Pine Flat. That is California's premier lake IMO.  Huge, warm water and nice water, feels clean when you get out.  You don't even have to wipe the boats down.

Midship. If I have 10 or more people I only fill rear bags maybe 30% or less. The 25LSV is one of more favorite waves. But I’m a little biased.

675 in bow, full

4-6 people, weight biased to wave side. With no passengers I put a 900 on the floor, pretty full

Wedge 1/2-3/4

Camera angle changes the whole perspective doesn't it?

 

Here's a port side video

 

And the starboard side
