It might be a good idea to post it under "Suggestions" here too, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/forumdisplay.php?f=18 and edit the spelling so someone can understand what your saying. If your using Firefox, it has spell check too.

Sham I need some advice on surfing from you. How long is your rope or home many feet are you from behind the back of the boat? I am having a hard time finding the "sweet spot." Can you go without the rope for a decent amount of time?

yes on surfing as well as this is what I primarily do with some wakeboarding mixed in every now and then.

Having a surf section would be a great idea. Justinglow, for beginners the sweet is usually small and close to the boat. As a surfer improves the sweet spot greatly increases. I make my own surf ropes. I make around six different loops spaced around a foot apart on the rope. This allows me to easily adjust the length of the rope while the surfer is surfing.

hey justin u really just have to adjust it till u find where u need to be. i have a handle with the extensions off of my wakeboard rop that i do not use that made a perfect surf rope. here is pic of both of my ropes in use. my second one is a knotted one it is ok if u just want to ride in the sweet spot. drylandfish and i like to do 360's and stuff so we use the reg handle!

seems like some people should take their time and read a little closer. it sure seems that both of those posts on here this morning were great in a gramatical sense.

sorry if the "greatest generation" has to have everything spelled out r-e-a-l s-l-o-w. should i have used a bigger font too??

man talk about a thread jack we were talking about surfing and you go all high school english on me!! lol

Will I Be Able To Use A 6'10" Short Board ? Just Want To Try It Before I Buy A Board Made For Wake Surfing.

Whats Best Heel Or Toe To The Wake ? How Often Does The Boat Get Hit By The Board ?

Thank You

i am not sure all i have ever surfed are wakesurf boards, but i wouls assume a 6'10" would work.
as for hitting the boat not much unless u ease up to the boat and want to tap the platform. maybe if u took a bad fall it might but usually when u fall the nose will dip and the board never gets close to boat! i hope that helps!!

Thanks Sham. I think I might not have the best board either. I bough the alias and it's not the best board. it's 5ft long. Do you think that's long enough? What model CWB do you have?

Surfing behind a long board is a blast. You need a long wake. The board in the picture is 8 ft long. You can lock the back of the board into the wake and do a hang ten off the front.

Stupid question, how do I make a long wake? Or does it depend on the boat?

The wake gets longer the farther you drive 8p

Justinglow,

You can make the wake longer by adding weight to the front of the boat and going faster. It also helps to have a bigger boat. The picture is from a 23 ft Enzo. I wouldn't ride the 8 ft board behind my 2005 X2 because you would have to ride to close to the boat and I wouldn't want to take the chance of hitting the back of the boat.

Toes into the wake. We have been surfing for a couple of years and have only had the board hit the boat one time...and that driver error.:o

Good luck with it! :)

Some suggestions for a sweet surf wake behind the X35.
I have recently discovered how to distribute the weight for a really nice surf wake. I place an 1100lb sac in the large rear space beside the engine compartment and stretch it out over the batteries. Then I place ~500lb sac in the observer seat. The port side internal ballast is filled. The middle ballast is empty. I found that moving the 500lb sac up in the boat makes for a longer sweet spot. I surf at 11.2MPH.
Another suggestion. Make sure you are in 15-20 feet of water. The size of your wake is dependent on the amount of water displaced. You can't displace as much water in shallow areas.

Hope this helps.

we surf toes to the wakr. so much better to see the wake!!

Let's have a surfing section....as the wounded Wakeboard generation ages it will probably gain in popularity!!

good information here. i bought a 5'6" due to fear of anything else being too small. Once I got up a couple of times, I went and bought a broadcast 4'6' and it is great fun. If you have surfed or wakeboarded, you should be able to surf 5'6" or below.
