    Default Maxing outback v wakeboarding

    Need help for setting up the wake for boarding on a 2011 outback v. Right now I have 750's in the rear and then 400 in front locker. It is kinda lippy whith every thing full, seams like the wake rolls over. Riding at 65 ft and 21.5 mph. I can jump toe side and heel. I just want a big clean wake and would love to ride at 70 feet. Does the wake get better. Wife said this boat has to last 2 more years. Trying to learn flips and want a bigger tranny and tips?

    Bow weight, lots more bow weight.

    If you are at 1500 in the rear id guess you need a minimum of 1000 in the bow. That's gonna have to get close to the boat's limits, though.

    Id play around with running less rear weight. With your existing bags you might try a 750 in bow and 400 in rear (fill other 750 equal amount) and see if titty like that wake more.

    I have no direct experience with the outback v ... Just think your front to rear ratio needs to be closet to 50/50. Most sc boats like to be closer to 60/40.

    Bahaha .... dang autocorrect. But yea, Dusty mom does like to ride a big "wake"

    Shockthis, you can start with 800, 600/600 and see what you think. It gotta be an improvement from where its at. If you don't like it, reduce the rear weight until you start getting closer to 50/50.

    I'm surprised the boat gets on plane the way you are currently running it.

    You're riding too slow, especially with that kind of weight in the boat. Kick it up to 23-24 at least; 23 is a good speed to learn inverts. I ride 25 at 65ft, behind an LSV though. Behind my Supra I rode 25-26 at 70ft, but the wake wasn't quite as wide. The wake will break further back and you'll have a cleaner wake. There is absolutely no reason you need to go to 70ft unless you start landing 5ft in the flats consistently, and I can't imagine the wake is good that far back at the speed you're going.
