    I rather wake surf than anything. I enjoy the freedom of not having to hold on to a rope (except to get up of course) I surf goofy foot so I load up balast system pluss a 1000lbs'er I installed under the seat on the drivers side, then make everyone sit on the drivers side and we find our perfect never ending wave at about the 9.5 mph mark. I use a hand held GPS to get it exact. I strongly recommend an exhaust system so you do not get afixiated/die from the exahaust fumes. I use the Fresh air exhaust system and love it.

    No worries with this system and the folks that own the company are first class people and will take care of you.

    We all surf goofy foot on my boat, so what I do is fill my two 400 lbs balast located on each side of my engine compartment and I load the ballast located in the hull. Then I load an 900lb balast located under the passenger seat directly behind the driver. Then I make everone sit on the drivers side of the boat. I also raise my wake plate all the way in the up possition. I find the speed where my wave is smooth and crisp. Usually around 9.8 MPH.

    There is your problem !

    The boat makes a wake with the plate UP. The boat reduces the wake with the plate DOWN. Everywhere in between is to adjust.
