    Yes it can be done with 1100lbs of ballast and a wave creator but It's not a $150,000 wave like the new Supra but still fun

    Oh goodness, a Comp with 1100 lbs still weighs less than my Ď83 Rider and I would never surf the Rider.
    The weight capacity sticker on a Comp is 6 persons or 835 pounds. One good wave over the bow and this boat is going down. I just donít get this fascination with surfing a Comp. Not my boat however so not my worry.

    Bless your heart, my thoughts were the same but didnít want to say it. Why risk tearing up a good transmission for a minimal wave?

    But water weight is less than lead weight right? Clearly 1,100 pounds of water weighs less than 835 pounds of non water items.

    Even if a towboat is sold as a "crossover boat", what does it really do well?

    Boat makers try, but a skiier or surfer would typically say blah.

    Numerous Supras and other types have them installed and they have very good reviews!
    You only need a thruster if you have a big heavy barge type boat that can't get out of its own way on its own. You can also hire a tugboat or two to help you dock.
