    Well, this was early in the learning curve but this is the best pic I could find. Not bad but I think we fine tuned it a bit more later in the season.

    Not the best pic but it gives you the idea of the height.

    It was my nephews first time.....reason for the tight rope.

    Thanks but I want BIGGER AND BETTER. I hope to improve it this season. However, last season it was super easy to free ride. I could get up on the board and by the time I had my trunks & vest adjusted the rope was useless... just toss it in and ride. The wake you see pictured is done with...

    2005 Supra 21V
    1050 lbs in the right rear
    650 in the ski locker
    wake plate 3/4 up
    running 2800 rpm (approx 10.5-11mph)

    I'm planning on more ballast overall this year (I'll have to tinker with it) and upgrading to the OJ wakeboard prop 14.25x14.5. We'll have to see how it goes.

    No weight up front? I personally would say it would work a lot better in the bow pushed to one side versus in the center belly ski locker... Once I start to get more than 1300lb in rear, the wave pushes you into the boat too much. It is a real short pocket unless you add 3-400 in the bow.

    This was the wave we setup last week. It was just me in the boat. I had 650 pounds in the rear starboard locker, the front was filled to 650 pounds, and I had (2) 550 pound bags behind the captains chairs... This is on an 09 21V. This is also my brother on essentially his first day of wakesurfing.

    Questions:
    1) For those that have been behind a lot of boats, how good is this wave?
    2) Could the wave be made longer by using the same bags and adding 2-3 people in the bow?

    The wave seemed very ridable for me when I went out on it. The thing I want is more length, but I'm not sure its really going to get much longer on this boat.

    A knee high wave is considered small.
    Thigh-high is medium.
    Waist or above is a big wave.

    Even my old 87 Sun can get a thigh high wave regularly, sometimes bigger. I run 500 in rear, 700 on rear floor, and 300 in bow.

    That wave looks nice, but only about knee high. Without too much work you should be able to get it 6-8" taller. I would put more weight in the rear to start and if your wave it 'too steep' you will start to run into the swim platform. Then it's time to use a few hundred lbs only of bow weight, this will make the wave smaller but the pocket much longer. Nice video. Most people I know dont run much bow weight.
