You are wasting that water on surfing???????

No wasting. It goes on like that forever. Just us, the occasional barge and those dang fishing nets.

Pics are intended for oneday. To the best of my knowledge this is about the best you can expect from a Stars and Stripes when it comes to surf wake. You really need to be watching for waves from other boats, and be careful of your own wake when slowing down. I'm also pretty sure the sheriff wouldn't be very impressed. I still suggest finding someone to trade pulls with who likes to slalom/foot and doesn't have a suitable boat. First pic is running, second is getting going.

Dang, drove by there today and it was nice. How often does it get windy?

Holy crap. Is your ankle seriously dragging in the water? That looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

Thus the cautions and recommendation to find someone to with a more suitable boat and befriend them. Which it sounds as though he has done. This was a carefully choreographed one time event under controlled conditions. I do not recommend this to anyone.
