Well we did it today. We made a bowl with two boats. Today we went to the river to do some surfing and wakeboarding. My buddy and I cruised with in feet of each other and created a bowl. My son surfed the bowl for a very long time. My buddy with the other boat also surfed the bowl. He also threw in the rope and free surfed both wakes. It was awesome. As soon as I get the pictures back, I will post. It was awesome. Very awesome

Sounds very cool, need to see those pics. I bet you don't want to do that with too much boat traffic around?

Nice. Ours was almost the same. I had 400ibs in the rear, 400lbs in the ski locker two adults and my son on the driver side of the boat. My buddies Malibu had 400lbs in the back 400lbs in the center, 400lbs up front. 3 adults and two kids. It was awesome.

my boat was set up on goofy side with 750 rear locker and 400 under seat behind driver and plate 3/4 down at 12mph and the maristar was set up regular and not sure with ballast weight. next time we will try fasteer speed and a real surfboard with more nose rocker because the nose was always under the water. I a;so replaced my rear swim platform with a homemade one to see if the wake would get better and it has, so i will probably make one out of foam and fiberglass.

pic of platform

Is it your theory that the platform was smoothing the wake as it were?

So the only difference is no lip? Hmmm looked smaller also, but you built it so you would know

Would it be possible for you to take pics of the wake with each platform so we can see difference? Dude you are hardcore.
