I think I'm gonna try pulling off my swim deck next time I'm out to see if it cleans it up even more. I think it is acting like a trim tab and lifting the port corner out of the water a little as we drive. My friends and I are all around 200# and can easily surf on any of the boards out there on this wave. My mother in law said it is much bigger than the wave they surf behind a friends x-30 with stock ballast.
gator, thats the same boat i have and i'm going to be trying to get it set up for surfing for next season. couple question for you, do you run into any problems with fuel coming out the vent? and are you running any ballast in the bow to lengthen the sweet spot?
