    Default Ballast placement in a 2006 moomba outback

    I recently started surfing, like two days ago recent, and i need to get a bigger wave. I have the factory bag under the back seat and i need to make the wave bigger and the pocket longer. We normally only have 4 people in the boat. What weight bags do I need and where should i put them? Any advice from you guys who have been doing this awhile would be appricated. Thanks in advance

    IN My '05 LS I had a 750 along side of the engine box and one on the back seat. I also filled the tank under the seat and I had a 400 (370) in the ski locker. I only ran that setup for one summer as I sold it and went to a V drive (LSV) HUGE difference.

    We ran a 750 in the rear under the seat (seat in upper position), 750 port side next to engine, 400 in bow.

    Ed G (an old school forum member, now banned) claimed he had an awesome wakesurf wake in his 2003 Outback. Here are his recommendations:

    600# beside the engine
    800#behind the engine (rear seat removed)
    no weight in bow
    Approx. 10 mph

    My 2001 has a different hull, and I don't really surf much, so I can't really vouch for it.

    I just replaced the (2) 600lb bags in my mojo with 1100's if you are interested in saving some $ on new.
