I’m hopping some else on here has set up a sunsetter and will chime in.

that was a great boat for skiing and other no wake sports.  Probably still purrs like a lion and handle like a Ferrari 

i think the flat bottom ski style hull really going to work against you.

had you loaded up the boat for wakeboarding in the past.?  And where you successful with getting a wake?

 

the wake surfing is more more weight In back and bow.  And you definitely need a suc gate.  ( suction cup wedge that you put on side of boat for delayed wake convergence).

Thanks Dwake

we had 600 lbs in the rear locker and another ~400 in the bow with 4 people in the back and the wake was about 80% there for surfing. 

the wakeboarding is phenomenal with the perfect pass and same amount of ppl in the boat. 
will share some vids when we get it surfing
