205v,xstar,x2,x1 Perfect Goofy Wakesurf Wave setup.

I have been messing with different weight configurations and suckgates for the last 18 months and can now get as good of a wave that would put a smile on anybody’s face who rides behind my boat. My configuration with only a driver in the boat is 800s in the rear lockers, 400 centered on the rear seat, 800 on the floor behind the drivers seat, center kgb full with an extra 350 wakemakers piggy back kit under the bow seats, and 50 pounds of lead shoved under the center bow cushion up front. My suck gate is 8.5” wide by 10 inches long at 90 degrees placed 25 inches from the stern. Last thing I did was upgrade my prop to the 1285 acme. Here is my wave video below.

Pretty impressive. Proves that you don't need a $150k boat!

Is my math correct?

Is that about 3450 pounds of ballast? Holy heck batman!

I run about 2500 pretty regularly but that's really impressive!

Cheers, Steve.

Boat handles the weight like a champ.

Nothing fancy just a tad bit wider than the ones you buy.
