Definitely need some perspective but it does look pretty long. Thanks for the post.

Wolf get out there and ride that sucker so we can see some perspective.

I really wanted to! But, the water was 48 degrees, air was 52 degrees and the wind was whipping hard and cold. Things were hectic with 3 kids & a wife that weren't as into it as me. I had a few issues on top of that. First time using the gopro and for the first 4 runs I had it set in photo mode, not video. The smaller bag was brand new and is for under the seats, so it was hard to unfold cold and didn't really fit where/how I wanted it. The boat is so deep that the pump barely reached and it popped out twice, shooting water all over and soaking the girl's feet. Which, of course, instantly froze.

I will try and get back out this weekend with a more willing crew. I'd like to try a true 1,100 in the locker, 1/2 in opposite locker, the 370 under the port seat up to the battery compartment and a true ibs in the bow. I don't think I had enough weight to get the hull down to the rubrail.

might not need to get the hull that deep?

have seen where the tige z3 doesn't like that much weight. mojo might be the same way based on the initial weighting?

interested to see how you play with it..

I agree; might not need to, but I sure WANT to. :)

I'll provide more of my thoughts on the wave after additional comments are posted.

Is it just me, or does that wave seem to be awfully close to the center of the "rooster tail"?

Most waves I've seen extend out past the hull of the boat

I need to reserve judgment until i see a body on it.

I'll reserve judgment as well. A video with a surfer for perspective and also a video shot with a normal lens. Those wide angle lens make it difficult to determine the actual size & shape of the wake, just look at how the wake and the sky bow...

bow like bow & arrow

Well, I'd want to calibrate the speedo. I think the 10.5 MPH was a little faster than that. It looked fast to me anyway.

The surf videos always look like you're going much faster that you are. There are a few others on my YouTube channel you can watch of the girls. All you will get from a rider is perspective on height. This shows how long & clean the wave is and the lip way back in the pocket.

I will try and get out in the water this weekend. Capt'n Kraig - why don't you join me?

Without a rider on the wave all the pockets look nice and long.

Oh so you're trying to max out the boat capacity are ya? Gonna dig the rub rail right into the lake.

Need max weight = invite big ol fat tub of self propelled ballast.

It sounds like fun. Not sure I can talk the wife into it.

I could sit in the rear corner and run a camera (with normal lens), that'd add a good 275 to your ballast tally.

Let me know the details of what you are planning and I'll see if I can get congressional approval.

you da man

Would be nice to see a side view from a chase boat but I know that's asking a bit much but it would provide a true perspective of the wake' height, length, and usefulness of the pocket with a rider. A "normal" lens view with a rider will be plenty though. How was the darkside?

What's the drive from Copperas Cove to Atlanta 10-12 hours? Swing on over!!

The chase boat idea sounds cool. If Drew can work out a second demo boat from Atl Marine we'd be set.

OK, let me see if I can get the list filled out:

- more ballast
- rider(s)
- more cameras with all kinds of lenses
- different shooting positions
- callibrate speedo
- goofy side
- chase boat
- chase boat crew
- film crew
- partridge in a pear tree

what else?

Cases of beer, couple swimsuit models, a few new Inland Surfers to demo, uh.....

Oh, the helicopter - yea, don't forget the helicopter!

Nice adds to the list there Berg. Stupid me for missing those.

I'm going to buy a helicopter too! That would be some awesome video.

what else?

"Get some...sour cream and onion chips, with some dip, man. Some beef jerkey, some peanut butter. Get some Hagen-Dagz ice-cream bars. A whole lotta of chocolate. Gotta have chocolate, man. Some popcorn, pink popcorn. GRAHAM CRACKERS!!! Graham crackers with the marshmallows. Little marshmallows with little chocolate bars and we'll make some s'mores man. Celery, grape jelly, Captain Crunch with the little crunch berries, pizzas, we need two big pizzas, man, everything on 'em, water, a whole lotta water and.......Funyuns."

Wait, what are we talking about.

I'd actually like to see a surf bowl with 2 Mojos, can you get some shots of that too while you are at it?

wolfeman131
02-09-2012, 10:36 AM
Sure, just need some more drivers. Would that require 2 chase boats?

hmmmmm . . . .

Just revisited this post. Need some more details on you "themurph." Where are you located? Maybe Marietta, GA?

KSmith
02-09-2012, 11:37 AM
So whats the plan Drew? You gonna go play this weekend, maybe down two chase boats and a helicopter?

I suppose one could teather a camera to a kite instead... poor man's helicopter ya know...

I hear the weather is supposed to start acting like winter this weekend... dagnabbit...

Whatever, stop trying to stir the pot. You had plenty of good things to say when we watched the same video in your office.

Wait, I already know your reply. There's a bromance weekend planned so you can't make it.

There is no money that would get me in that water on Saturday. Don't blame you for postponing. Let us know how the visit goes if you get over to the dealer though.
