    Default 24SSV Slalom set up

    I realize it's a wakeboard boat but do like to slalom once in awhile. I am assuming 35-36 mph, wakeplate down, and minimum weight will help but any tips on rope length or other tips for a good set up? TIA

    Anything you do with that boat will be survival sking . Your best bet is to get a comp or a friend with a comp.

    Yeah, my FIL has a Centurion Elite that would be much better. My wife loved the boat and I loved the big block power so we got what we got. Maybe I will just go back to barefooting. Its plenty fast for that and the wake doesn't matter.

    What does 32-35mph look like behind your 24SSV?

    Will never attempt? Shaun Murray slalomed behind his G-Whiz...

    If all you are looking to do is swerve back and forth free skiing without attempting any course runs I don’t see why you can’t do it. It might not be enjoyable but so what.

    I'm giving it a try tomorrow and will report back. Looking to be able to throw a wall of water without getting killed crossing the wake to do it again on the other side. I know it's not a course boat, just trying to get a manageable wake.

    From the wake out to the turn and back to the wake you might be alright. I would go full length on the rope because you will probably have to decrease your angle of cut as you approach the wake to cross, then accelerate again once on the other side of the wake. Rinse, lather, repeat.
