    Default Mondo with the flow... first impressions

    Well the weather smartened up for one evening anyways... and I was able to get out and do some surfing. I have my IBS bag tied into my centre bag. So 750s in rear lockers, floor hard tank full and ibs full. Flow all the way down, wakeplate all the way up and off we went. Regular side wave cleaned up a little better than the goofy wave but I was happy with both sides... especially with only 250lbs of people ballast in the boat. And the best part was my buddy who had never driven a surf boat was able to drive comfortably!! Not leaned way over ... 30 seconds to switch sides and good waves all around.

    I am gonna play around with the extra bags I have and see what I do.. an extra 400lbs on the surf side may help out as well.

    First impressions are good for me..

    Looks good, that goofy wave you need to slow it down a little, or drain a little out of regular to clean it up. Other wise looking good.

    I will try to take pictures today of my wake without the flow. I finally downloaded a gps app and realized my speed was off by a couple of mph so I have the wave looking better. I do wish I had the flow. It takes a while a while to go from goofy to regular with those 900's. That regular side looks amazing to me though. I am thinking of trying to ride that way today (if the rain holds off). Why is it when I take a friday off to board it decides to cloud up? I blame the weatherman... They have some dice in the morning and roll them and what ever shows up they run with it.

    Yup more weight is always good in my book, yea I would think your Paddle wheel calibration is off a bit. When you get wash on the wave like that its typically going to fast and the boat is flattening out.

    image.jpg this is from my mondo with 3 adults and 2 small kids. Stock ballast. Now I need to figure out how to stay in the sweet spot. Also are you guys finding any damage, boat or board, by taking off from the platform?
