I have a 700lb bag on my 08 Outback. It helps, but you will not have a "surfable" wake without that and 6 people and coolers in the boat. Obviously, you can always surf with the handle.
At the slow speeds, my wake plate doesn't seem to make much difference in position. It takes a lot of people or bags to surf an Outback properly. It's nothing like being in a LSV
Thanks for the tip MoombaDaze. I will definitely proceed slowly and carefully if I need to have my pride and joy ride that low in the water. And then there is the problem of me trusting her to another pilot when I surf. Sheesh!
