    Default Can you wakesurf behind OBV 07???

    Ok surf experts? i am looking to upgrade from G1 to G111 for the moomba. I have looked at lots of setups. any pre06 lsv or 06 to 08 OBVplease chime in.
    Jester, Mcmoomba, jessiec, crix, stang ss etc.( i'll get to the pumps, valve questions after i solve the first one, DIY vs Dealer etc.)

    Can i surf withe the factory system from the dealer?
    do i need to upgrade the rear sacs to the 400lb or the GG 565lb, 750's are a little too big.

    we do not want to put bags on the seats to get the weight , usually have 4 adults and 4 kids in the boats( kids usually in the bow)

    Ed, not uprgading to the OBV 09. yet

    can i do it??? or do i need an lsv or bigger

    PS i tried behind my friends 24ft Tige( big wave) no ballast, and wake plate stuck in slalom mode, but i almost rode free on the "jimmy Jam" Foam Board LOL

    JV, I have an 08 OBV and we have surfed alot this sumer. I did the upgrade from G1 to GIII myself over the winter. I had the 400lb and it just did not do it the 750lb is bigger than the rear locker but it works fine it just fills all available space. here is a link to the GIII upgrade and a couple of pics if us surfing with center 400lb full and 750lb @ 9.75mph wife driving and 3 kids in boat (400 lbs ttl)

    With the ski locker sac full, a 750 lb sac in the rear, and however many people you can get as far back and to the correct side; you'll have a good surf wake. I have an '07 OB V, and it definitely throws a surfable wake. The 750 really isn't too big. I don't think you can fill it completely, but the overwhelming majority of it is full.

    Good luck.

    mcmoomba, thanks for the photo's gotta love the fresca.... nice wave BTW.

    I was admiring your work earlier today and yesterday on my searches, can't find the rule pumps anymore so maybe the tsunami 800 will have to do. Thanks for the update on the 750's looks like it will work. Not sure why the 565 GG bags are so expensive.

    that solves it, proof in the pudding, but definatley need more than the 400lb in the lockers.

    I have an 07 OBV with 400 in the center locker and 750 in the rear storage locker and it's a great wave. Get a few extra people in the boat and you go from great to awesome!

    I would estimate the 750 at 95% full when in that locker so I wouldn't get too worked up about it not fitting.

    Just to clarify, my wife can easily surf with 400 in the ski locker and 400 in the rear of our 06 Outback V. We usually have 4-5 others to throw onto the ballast side. Also more weight up front will elongate the pocket so you aren't all up on top of the swim platform.

    Of course, she weighs a buck oh five soaking wet

    can I hook the 750 directly to the pump that feeds my GIII ballast on my 08 OBV or do I need to upgrade the pump for the bigger bag? would it just be a matter of taking the bigger bag a long time to fill?

    No pics of my wave - but I promise it looks nothing like the monsters I've seen posted on here.

    I have seen a guy (180lb-ish) try surfing for the 1st time on my 4'6" board - 400lb in the ski locker and 400lb in the back - only me on the boat driving - and he free rode on his 2nd try. He was bumping the swim platform a good bit however. He's also a hell of a wakeboarder and grew up skateboarding.

    With little other weight on the boat, it is usually tall enough but a little washy with a small pocket that is much closer to the boat than most are comfortable with. Maybe I'll grab some pics this weekend.

    With some xtra folks up front and on the ballast side, the wave/pocket elongates much more. I won't argue that more weight is better - just not required
