Welcome to wet world. November is the worst month of the year IMO. From there it gets better. Oceanside to Kent will be a big adjustment but you sound game.

I found the trick is where you put the weight. I had about 150# way up in the nose for a while and had problems with water over the bow. Then I moved it back and now its in front of the helm, much...

My setup

I got a chance this weekend to take some pictures of my setup. This is with the bags nearly full. I had fun getting my ballast timers re-programmed to fill everything but eventually I got it.

FYI, I've done two pump replacements and all you need is the airtex pump 2044 or equivalent, some hose clamps and basic tools. Most autoparts stores in the US stock these pumps. I've found them in...

For port surfing I fill all three sacs full (two port 750s and one starboard 1100). That plus the 200# steel on the starboard gives a slight port list.

For starboard surfing I just drain some of...

Wow, those are some great shots. MC has managed a form of optical illusion making the boat look smaller than it is. That one shot of it loading on the trailer helps put it in perspective, its...

Maybe I wasn't clear. I have 750# sack up front on the port side in the large storage area under the glove box. I also have about 200# of steel in front of the helm under the front flip up seat. So...

Yep, the surf market.

BTW, riding with ballast empty, mid and full without ever dropping the rope, that's badass.

Def a new sheriff in town. I really like what they did with the overall style. It's like the sleek look from the gen2 star with another 1/2 boat underneath. It eliminates the barge look that most of...

Congrats! Makes total sense that you got the best deal from a BU dealer. Cobalt, Axis and Malibu are all owned by the same company. And they would get the most money selling your Cobalt.

Weight in the front will lengthen the wave and let you surf farther back. These boats need a lot of weight to sink them. 800# in the port rear locker is a good start but more is definitely better.
