I do not wakeboard much anymore. However, I did own a 2014 23 LSV with the LS3 (450) motor, and wakeboarded a lot back then. 

we are at about 4000’ ASL (1200M). 

if you want to be sure to get the boat up on plane for wakeboarding, you want a 12 pitch prop. If you were ONLY surfing you might get away with a higher pitched prop (13-14), but you would definitely hit a “speed wall” (point at which the boat gets stuck and won’t go fast enough to get on plane for wakeboarding). When that happens you will likely need to empty ballast especially from the rear of the boat. 

you will also want to be sure to balance the ballast to be no more than 60% in the rear of the boat. If you fill the plug and play bags in the rear of the boat you will need to add extra ballast (external bags or lead) in the front, no matter which prop you choose.
