Power Wedge


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I am new to the forum and new to surfing.

I bought a 2012 VTX and can get an alright wake with all ballasts full and an extra fat sac full on the passenger side, but when I put the power wedge down the wake turns to crap, all rough and foamy. Anyone have any suggestions to help us, please?

Sounds like you probably have that hull maximized for weight in the rear with the ballasts full, adding wedge starts to work against you.  I would try to add weight in the bow and see if that helps.  If it continues I would start dropping weight in the rear ballasts until I was able to use that wedge to adjust the wave a bit.  If the wave is better with no wedge and full rear ballasts then so be it.  There are a ton of people who surf without using the wedge at all.

Thank you for your reply. Yes everything is maximized.

I will try the wedge with a few different configurations of ballasts and wedge.
