If you just purchased a wakeboard you should not be using ballast. More weight means you need to up the speed to clean the wake up. Higher speed and bigger wake is not the right combination for a beginner. You're not going to improve faster - but it will increase the chances you get injured.

Waiting for the next installment of MS Man....."How long before you're back on the water after a concussion, blown ear drum and a torn ACL (and will changing prop sizes affect my recovery time)?"

Maristar-Man's Chronicles take a tragic turn after blowing out knee in light of trying to go too fast, too far and too high.

Hopefully he will get it on film and post, so we can all watch how it happened and critique his style or lack there of.

Thumbs up Selling My New Fat Sac's and Tsunami Pump

I have 2ea. 400lb.+ 1ea. 750lb. Fat Sac's that I purchased New at Mastercraft Dealer. We feel that when our children are skilled enough to warrant more weight, we will look at an X-series boat... It's beyond the 30 day return policy so I thought I would offer them to you . Comes with the Tsunami pump, instructions, piping, Air Vent Plugs, origional boxes, and literature.

PRO SERIES V-DRIVE SAC (SET) 400lbs x2ea. $199.00




PRO X SERIES FAT SAC 1ea. 750lb $149.00




Tsunami Pump $99.00
The Tsunami Pump System is designed to fill and empty sacs at an alarming rate. The tubing we use is larger in diameter so it doesn't choke the pump, resulting in greater output. Combine this with our Quick Connect Valves and you'll be riding faster than ever before.



With Tax I paid $482, but I'll let it all go for $ 425.00

You can also see them at Fly high Site -->>here<<--

I'd Keep them- you'll use them eventually, start by adding weight little by little. If you rode enough I could see you using weight by the end if this summer. Plus, if you wanted say a better rider to go out with you'll need weight or you won't be able to get anyone to go out with you! Wakeboarding is no fun without weight, though I agree with above that u wouldn't use it to begin with.

I say keep them as well... for the same reasons, as well as if you want to surf you'll be kicking yourself for getting rid of your set up.

Ah good point, didn't even think about surfing-you'll need it for that for sure, even as a beginner.
