I can surf this wake all day with only 2 people in the boat. Try speeds 9.4-10.5. Verify with a GPS! 9.8-10.2 MPH has always been the best for me. 10.2 if you have a lot of people/weight in the boat.

The wake on the port side will always be cleaner b/c of the prop rotation. If you have people in the boat, put them on the same side of the boat. Nobody in the center or on the WRONG side of the boat. If you have too many people throw them on the same side floor or in the bow!

The surf wave is very respectable. It's not the biggest, but it has a lot of push! I like it better than other MC's in the lineup. If you can't surf it, it's an ability and/or equipment problem
Thanks for the reply! So just to clarify the KGB is the ski locker ballast right? Also there is nothing needed besides bigger ballast in the rear corner for a quality wake? And since I surf goofy footed, have you been able to get a clean wake on both sides with this setup?
