    Default Wakesurfing an XLV

    This weekend will be my first weekend to attempt to wakesurf my new XLV. I have 750 sacs in the rear and an 1100 sac in the center. What side of the boat is usually best on the XLV...goofy or regular?

    Well, regardless of which side has the better wake, it will be easier to surf if are facing the wake. So if you are regular, surf on the port side.

    You should get a great surf wave with that boat and your ballast set up.

    Thumbs up

    you should add another 400lb or 450lb sac under the observer seat and glove box than you will get a 4foot wake. It rocks

    That's not an option. I'm not putting that much water near my 3 amps, 3 batteries, and onboard charger. I'm probably going to get a 1000lb bow sac and or a few of those 155lb Fat Sac blocks to play with to lengthen the pocket of the wave

    Well, How did it go?

    I've got a 2007 with a similar setup, and I've noticed the wave is tall, but it doesn't stay tall and it's very close to the back of the boat... It's like 3.5 feet tall right off the swim step.

    How have you been doing your setup? Which bags are you filling to the max, and which are you partial filling?

    Turned out that the parts guy decided on his own to order the 565lb sacs instead of the 750 sacs I told the service dept to install when they upgraded from GI to GGIII. I discovered this on the first day out then called the dealer and bitched about it. To make it right the dealer had the parts guy call me and apologize and asked what I wanted. I now have two 1,100 jumbo v-drive sacs waiting for me at the dealer. I've noticed that with bow weight (I had 3 adults up front) the wave gets longer and easier to stay in the pocket.

    Default Wakesurfing behind an XLV

    I was actually out yesterday and tried experimenting with the sacs to get the best wave. I had the front and side sacs filled along with two additional 540 lbs. that I placed in the back and side we were surfing on.

    We got a pretty good clean wave on the goofy side, but the regular side wasn't too clean. I also experimented with the wake plate and speed and couldn't seem to get it right.

    Does anyone have any ideas? What speed, plate position, weight distribution works for others?

    Appreciate any help!!!

    Does the 750 bags fit good back in the rear lockers and does it change the wave that much? Also would you change the back bags or the front bag to larger bags first?
