I run the 13 x 13 4 blade. You need some serious prop when your running 1400lbs ballast!
Wayne there is a place called the Prop shop in Ocauchee WI that fixes DD Props. That's who my dealer uses

do you run that prop all the time. Skiing and wakeboarding too? I'm happy with the stock prop (it's an OJ) and good hole shot with top end around 40. I ski (60) and wakeboard (40). Just getting into surfing and will try it out next season. I'm going to get a spare anyway so figured I'd set that up for surfing?

I run the stock 13 x 13. I can top out around 46 and it still has good holeshot and works good for surfing too. My hull is a little older so that might make a difference. It's just the right one for me. I'm 20 surf 40 wb 20 ski and 20 kneeboard and tubing.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

Mine is a stainless I bought off some guy here on the boards. It's a lesser known name which escapes me right now. I'd say they hole shot is a bit better, but I think some of the stuff OJ and Acme are doing now with a 3 blade is just as good if not better.
To be honest I'm thinking of going back to the 3 blade and trying one like Z got for his LS as I ski every morning usually and my boat is one of 3 in the rotation, while my kids are still pretty young and don't require anything special to have fun.

We can surf my 02' DD Outback with ZERO ballast - simply some good people weight spread throughout the boat. The wave isn't awesome like that - but it's definitely surfable.
With some ballast in the rear corner and some weight up front - it surfs real nice.Sold my Moomba. Currently boat whoring.
