Less weight with more bow weight seemed to make it more vert and I got better air. Not as big of a wake but more pop. So try that too.

Weighting the bow is critical because of the porpoising issues. However, PP stargazer fixed that as well.

I finally got a good ride behind my own boat going the same speed the whole ride. If either of you guys don't have PP yet. Make it your next upgrade. I wish I would have done it sooner.
Some great ideas for this weekend right here. I'll half fill the rears and keep all the bow weight in the boat, more vert would be nice!

Perfect Pass Stargazer is a lifesaver when running ballast, even my gf can drive the boat perfectly with it. Highly recommend it for both wakeboarding and wakesurfing!

P.S. - KTZ_MC, sorry for the thread jack haha.
