    Newguy, I saw the video the obv that Ed and Todd have are totally different hulls than the pre 06 lsv and 06 to 08 obv, which we have. My wake is pretty clean like mmanleys with 700 in the back and 400 in the enter with three or 4 passengers..

    I doubt you'll see or feel much of a difference in the wave. We took the platform completely off one day just to see what would happen and didn't notice any noticeable difference in size, shape, or cleanliness of the wave.

    Todd's and Ed's look very similair to me. I also thought that the goofy side makes a cleaner wave due to prop rotation.

    Todd, you are the first that I know of to do something like that-way to go for envelope pushing

    Its all good and i wasn't trying to compare the LSV wave to the OBV wave i was just trying to see if there was an issue. I know with ours the Drivers side has a little more curl to it and thats prolly the prop rotation. Yet the passenger side of the boat has a much nicer looking smooth wave to it.

    I was just under the understanding you want that dark smooth center to the wave.

    Im by no means an expert at surfing waves and hince i dont even have any pictures of my wave with my new ballast set up. 750 rear and 1000 in front.

    Ill get some this year.

    As long as you can ride the wave then its all good i just know when i hit the washy stuff it seems to eat my board or my legs up and i cant surf it at all.

    This is what my OBV threw last year with the 750 rear and 400 center. I got the 1100 pounder to play with this year, but it's huge!
