It would be good to know a starting point for my x14V when I get back in the water this summer.

And a question for the boarders...
Its hard to tell because the wake is not symmetrical, but it seems the curl is way behind the rider in these pics? or would the curl move closer to the boat if the wake was made symmetrical again?

The rider in the photo is at 55' and 20 mph ish. The curl is generally gone when the boat / ballast is dialed in a bit better. Those photos are from my first season with the boat !
