Surf Setup on M235

Recommended Posts

I purchased a 2017 Malibu M235 late last summer.  I only had a few weeks to play around with the surf wave.  The goofy side is PHENOMENAL!  However, the regular side is.......quirky.  I realize that it is the prop rotation, but I just never could dial it in to match the goofy side.  I had the same issue with my 2010 23 LSV prior to trading it in on the M235.  The only way I could get the left side surf wave nice was to list it.  I really don't want to have to do that with my M.  I would really like to hear what M235 owners setup is for the goofy side.

In all boats with surf gate or tabs, just listing the boat a little bit to the rider's side helps. I own a 2019 25 lsv and it's waves are phenomenal, but we still try to seat people to list the boat just a little to the side of the rider.

Buddy has an 18 M we surf regularly with just driver and rider.  @MakeNWaves is dead on, just a slight list to port.  The below is our regular set up.


Everything full

400lbs lead in bow

200lbs lead under each side back corner seats


Wedge ramp or 1 up from ramp



Move 200lbs lead from rear corner starboard side and place on port side...………..


SOOOOO....if you have a crew with you just slightly bias list to port side.  The above wave set up is a REALLY GOOD wave with only a driver.
