Best wake set up


Recommended Posts

Hey guys I’m new to wake surfing, and having a little difficulty dropping the handle. I have a 21 MLX and just looking to get the best set up to drop the handle and not slip off the back of the wake. With limited weight in the boat I fill all tanks to 100% surf the port side and wedge set at 4 traveling 11 mph. The board I’m using is surf style Ronix 5’5”, so It’s pretty long. Do I have to much ballast in the boat?  Should I change the surf wedge/stow it?  I’m not great, but I have the ability to drop the handle.  I’m just having a hard time staying in the “sweet spot.”

Sorry I should have mentioned. The 2019 21 MLX came equipped with rear pnp sacks on top of rear tanks. There are 6 ballast containers. Bow hard tank, floor hard tank, 2 rear hard tanks port and starboard, and 2 rear pnp sacks port and starboard on top of the hard tanks. All that plus a 50+ gal gas tank
