2019 23 LSV prop switch for surfing at elevation


Recommended Posts

I’m posting this in case it helps anyone else. We live at about 4,000 feet elevation, and we bought a 2019 23 LSV that came with the Acme 2419 prop. We were having trouble keeping speed with full ballast (including two rear pnp bags). I called Acme and ended up switching to the 3093, and the difference has been very noticeable. We can now keep surf speed with full ballast, and the wave is much better in general. I was hesitant to make the switch, but I have no regrets. Note: we don’t do any skiing, so I can’t really comment on loss of top speed.

I surf at 7,300 elevation and have the 2019 22 LSV 450.  I'm having the same issue with 2249 that came with it.  Trying to figure out if the 2773 (15x13) is going to be enough or if I should go for the 2419 (15x12).  If I go for the 15x12 the cupping options are .075 and .105.  It's all so confusing.  Thanks for the post, I'll call Acme in the morning.
