Just wanted to see if anyone has tried. We have I can get a what I call good wake but all ways have to have the rope. We had 6 people on the boat (1 in the water, driver 180. 2 girls =260 up front, 2 guys = 400-500 in the back corner.

You're about a thousand pounds light.

If you want to surf with that boat it's gonna need to look like this. We've done much better previously with a bag in the bow as well. Didn't have that the day of the first pic. Also, had a better rider in the second pic.

What is your set up. We had an above the knee wake but the wake felt soft.

2x750's back right, and a smaller bag under the bow (I think 400ish). Don't try this with inexperienced drivers, as you're flirting with disaster. Note the water running across the top of the hull and hitting feet. If you stop rather than a gradual slowing incorporating a careful turn, you'll bring in about 100 gallons in an instant. Also, play with the speed and your distance from the back of the boat to find a spot that gives you a good push, if the wakes big and soft it's not gonna work. You need to feel it pushing you up to the boat.
