I'll try and get some video up tonight when we get home, but we found the best wave with this set up:

1,100 full in port locker
370 full under port seats
750 in starboard locker about 1/2 full
450 center hard tank full
400 or so in bow walkway (anxiously awaiting my IBS)

10.2 mph and plate 3/4 to 1/4 up for a steeper or longer wave, respectfully.

Glad to see you're up & enjoying the Mojo!

What do you mean when you say 1/4? Are you talking 1/4 down or like a quarter tank when you look at the gas gauge?

1/4 of the way down. For my younger daughter, I sometimes have the wake plate all the way DOWN so the wave lengthens and gives her more to work with as she doesn't require as much power from the wave.

I surfed Thunderman's Mojo Yesterday and it was nice! Still can't get over how much bigger that boat seems than my LSV!

I will post some picks also sometime tomorrow evening.

Our set up:
1100 portside locker
370 under portside seat
Front tank full
IBS about 500
200-400 Starboard locker
4-6 people on port side bench.
Wake plate at 3/4
Speed:12.4-12.7
I can surf out to full length of ronix surf rope and still get to back of boat with moderate effort. Started off running at 10.7-11.4. Push was awesome but wave washout prevented me from moving blackout further. With speed increased wave is awesome.

Next time we are out we are going to add a 750 bag in port corner couch seat and a bit more bow weight.

This is the wave at the beginning of the weekend before we changed from 750 to 1100 in port locker and increased speed to 12.4

Some video of same wave. Gopro ran out of juice before ballast and speed change.

Salyers that's awesome,

What is IBS about 500?

I have 750 in the back lockers, but the wave for me seemed better with the stock 400, my wave is to steep and not very long. My setup
450 in center full
750 starboard full
Driver
10.5 mph

What should I tweak?

12 Mojo

IBS from wakemakers is 650. Try putting the wakeplate down to lengthen the pocket. The Mojo needs bow weight, too.

I keep forgetting that we really like it with some weight in the opposite corner, too and really sink the back end.

More weight up front and for the best pocket length you need speed at least 11.7 but 12.4-12.7 is what we will be running from now on. You'll have to mess with the weight in the starboard side locker. I started off empty and just added weight till the wave started to get prop wash and then backed off till it disappeared.

We are going to try an additional 400 in the bow on the seats (on top of the IBS and the stock tank) and a 750 on the port corner of the couch this weekend and see how big we can get the wave.

With all the weight we had this weekend we still have yet to take a roller over the bow. And we had plenty of opportunity for that to happen. I love the bow shape of the Mojo. Its like a wave deflector. The LS was like a roller magnet. We almost always took some water over the bow in crowded lake conditions.

Another thing that surprised me about the wave is how SOLID it was to push off of when you increased the speed. A true wall of water!
