I have the same hull, not a bad wake - but respectable is a long shot for wake board.. wake is butter smooth for slalom - ok for recreational wake boarding..... V-Drive - or 96 and up hull make a better wake board wake... IMO

I will be primarily wakeboarding. I heard the PS throws a respectable wake loaded.
The wakeboarding wake is decent when loaded. I went from a Sea Doo Speedster to the PS 205, so the wake on the MC seemed huge compared to the Sea Doo. Now I have a 210 VRS and the unloaded wake is about the size of the loaded wake on the 205. I tried loading the back corner up for surfing on the 205 and as mentioned, it can be done, but the pocket is very small. Not worth the effort IMO. If you do plan on doing that much wakeboarding, then you may want to consider adding a tower, especially if you want to have others riding in the back seat. It will get the wakeboards off the floor as well. You have done a good job on the wet sand and buff.

What kind of audio are you adding to this thing? Let me know how it sounds. Take pictures of taking of the combing pads....I need to drill two holes and cut vinyl my boat is a radio delete from the factory

I guess you can say I'm a rec wakeboarder. If I can get 3-4' of air behind this thing that would be great. I can spin 3's however having trouble passing the handle. I've been snowboarding since 95' and am used to "no rope."

Sadly, v-drives were out of budget.

Thanks. I'll probably start off next season with a fly high pole and see how that goes. The lake is small so dropping stuff off at dock will be no problem.

Putting this unit in tomorrow just to get some tunes going. There will be up to 5 kids under age 6 on board, and they are not exactly quiet...LOL.

Noise carries like crazy on this lake so we don't plan on playing loud music.

We bought some $60 speakers just in case the speakers that came with boat don't work. We may return if they turn out to sound OK.

Wake should be fine for you. I have seen some crazy things thrown behind my old 78 skier. 720's, front flips, back flips you name it. All about form

I wish I could do all that! I'm sure I will have more than enough fun behind this thing. Looking to get into the water this weekend! Brrrrrr.

You will be happy with the extended pylon. I have a Barefoot International SS Fly High for my boat and love it. Simple to install and remove, and they work great. I also normally operate from a dock so boat clutter is seldom an issue. Look early in spring when they seem to be the most plentiful if you are shopping the used market.

Expecting to see this sweet ride on the river at our next Illinois River Meetup... Hit me up for any decals you might need.
