66199Here's a pic of my 10 year old boy just getting up. The wake in this photo is still in transition towards it's largest size and cleanliness as we are still accelerating. Here it is shown at about 7.5 MPH. We have found that 10.8mph with full starboard and KGB stock ballast tanks (what does KGB stand for by the way?) Fly High 750lb sac in starboard rear locker. full tank fuel, port side surf tab fully extended and center plate at about 60 extended. Lots of fun!!! I took a digger yesterday and somehow caught the tip of the board on the eyebrow and a fin across the neck... NICE rookie move! Still lots of learning to do! At this point I dont see how to stay in the sweet spot... especially when you fall back a bit!

My best advice on staying in sweet spot, get the TSO Wake app for your Ip*d or iph*ne and go from there

Just keep in mind where you place your weight, the front foot is the gas and the back is the brakes. Experiment with it, and have fun!
