    The "original" wakesurfer on this forum used his outback for a few years to surf. I believe he had 1000 in the back, 750 on the side, plus coolers and people. Be prepared for your rubrail to be a few inches above the water line in order to have a proper surf wake on that boat.

    I was in the "originals" outback surfing one time, at rest the rear corner rub rail was at water level. When surfing water would actually come up and over the top of the little ski locker in the rear.

    700 rear seat sac, 400 along side of doghouse, and 2-400lbs of peeps with 1/2 of them weighted to surf side, or a 300lb bag up in the bow walk way if not enough human weight. rub rail inches above water as stated.
    Be very alert as you'll more than likely take a roller over the bow at some point

    I have an Outback too and I've been talking to my Moomba dealer about outfitting it for surfing. He was on the pro wakeboard circuit at one time. He believes I can get a wave sufficient for beginning to intermediate surfers simply by replacing the bag under the rear bench seat with a larger bag. I don't remember the size but it seems that maybe it was double the volume of the stock bag but with the same footprint. He didn't say anything about me needing to run with my rub-rails in the water so maybe I need to discuss it further with him - LOL

    Richard, adding a bag to just the rear will creat a very very short shallow wave, really need to add some weight to the side you want to surf to help creat some lenght to the wave. when both bags are full the boat will be leaning over twords your surf side. you want the boat sitting heavy, usually more displacement = better wave. Since the outback is a shallow boat that weight will make it sit real low with the rear corner rub rail just about water level, maybe start with filling both bags 1/2 full and work up to full so you can get a feel for how the boat handles and you can get used to it being so low, it freaks some people out to see a outback that low. Be carefull.
