That looks amazing. I wonder if it would be safer if you tied an inflatable pillow or foam on the end of the rope. It would give you something to hold on to, and make it both softer and less 'whipy'.

We have the same thing. Regular wave is amazing. Goofy wave gets lots of complements from riders, but doesn't look as good. We've found we have to list to get it to look 'nicer'.

I'm with Foggy.

For me, surfing is a social thing. Everyone goes in the boat at the same time regardless of age, tunes cranked, and surfer close enough to be part of the conversation. Even guests...

Thanks. Those pics were me playing with the suck gate on my own while everyone else was busy doing other stuff - no surfers, no extra ballast.

We normally go with 800lbs in fat sacs (400 in the ski...

Changing fuel sender on 2014 5.7l Ilmor

This is about a half hour job well within the capabilities of any home mechanic - you just need a 5/16" socket and about a half an hour of time.

Not sure if the '15 and '16's come with the new...
