Surf wave setup for SurfGate Equipped boats

@gregtay also interested in the board you are riding. I have a 5'0" Liquid Force Rocket 22, and am around 215#. I had a buddy with me this weekend who is 175# soaking wet and neither of us could find the sweet spot on the wave. Wondering if that is just user error or I need something less "skimboard" shaped.

in the video my wife is on a Ronix Carbon Sproket (the smaller version.) She loves that board.  I ride a few different things.  I have a Matrix (I think it is a 53).  I also ride a potbelly rocket (the med size.)  I tip the scale around 165-170 depending on how much beer I drink.

Hi, I have an Axis A22 and my setup is very similar to yours and get a beautiful wave.  Question I have is what setting is your wedge in?  Ramp?  My adjustment are 1-6.  One being least amount of force and six being comparable to 1500# of downforce. Also, do you get a better surf side with your boat Like I do?  Goofy riders get a cleaner shaped wave.  

Not ramp.. I usually sit about 2 clicks from ramp.  I find ramp causes too much bow rise and shortens the wave.   even with more wieght in the bow I find that ramp is never better for surf style.  For skim... I slow it down and ramp the wave a bit more.

Appreciate it man. I’m well outside of my college soccer years, pushing 210 on a good day. I managed to pick up a used Connelly Ono off eBay (for a freaking steal) and found the sweet spot for the first time this weekend. I’m STOKED!!!

 

oh and then I bottomed out and trashed my first prop, so a few firsts this weekend 🤣🤣🤣
