went out the other night and it was to choppy to wakeboard so we went surfing.... here is my setup.
750 in rear drivers side
500 in centre locker
200 lb driver (me)
240 lb passenger (dale)
100 lb passenger
75 lb passenger
------
1875 lbs total ballast 10.7mph and wakeplate down all the way (it seemed to clean up the wave the best that way)
the young girl riding is about 5'5" tall and it was her first time getting up... she did awesome. After a couple wipeouts (see Pic lol!!) she got the weight transfer thing figured out and went for about a mile!

I've got 2 more 400 lb bags and an 1100 triangle bow bag... but i don't like loading the nose down when it's choppy out. taking water over the bow freaks me out!!! I am going to plumb my 2 extra 400 bags in the nose under the seats... but then i'd like another 400 lb bag for setting right behind the driver. In a perfect world i'd like to get the enzo sac but it's to much money for me!!

In the pic where she's doing her superman impression i hadn't gotten up to speed yet and was turning slightly away from the rider to get sorted out to...

Great pics! I thought she was doing her Forrest Gump impression & was running away from the wave.

lol wolfeman that sounds about right. When her mom saw the pic she was like "hey that's just like when you biffed it doing hurdles last year!" lol at least this landing would be softer.

Looks like that "walking on water" thing just doesn't work - LOL
