Both of course! Makes it much easier getting into the cold lake water in the fall.

Here is a visual of the ballast design.

??

Every tab style surf system lists the boat when surfing......

This system just enhances the effectiveness of it, and retains the ability to transfer sides in seconds, and remain weighted level when at rest.

In reality, the boat did not seem to list nearly as much as the graphic implies, but it was easy to demonstrate the effectiveness of this system buy having one person move side to side. A person moving from the non surf side to the surf side of the boat will transfer not only their weight, but extra weight due to the mid ballast tank.
This is why the tank is at 75% for surfing but at 100% for wakeboarding - this way, at 100%, there will be less side to side weight movement and the boat is not as sensitive if a person were to move around.

Compare to G23

Many tks Very helpful
When you say comparable in size you were riding with the new star fully loaded? And landing zone? Wide and soft? Which rope length you rode at 22? Lip by lip is the star more aggressive than the G?
Many tks

That's a really ingenious use of the ballast system...most of the time a naval architect try's to eliminate free surface effect, which is what they are allowing to happen by not fully filling the tank when surfing, but in this case is a great way to use the phenomena in the athletes favor.

I feel like this could create a scenario where if the boat is surfing left, and most passengers are on the port side, when the tabs switch, the tab will not be enough to counter the weight of the water as well as people all stacked up on port, resulting in the boat not crossing over level and the water in the tanks not washing back over to the other side. But then again, I'm not an MC engineer, and I'm sure they thought of this, so perhaps it isn't be an issue.

Doesn't matter what boat you are on or how your ballast is set up, there are limits to all of the surf systems. If you are listing hard to the surf side I am sure this system will not overcome that, but if you are even close to level I am sure it will. Just like every other boat, you still need to pay a little attention to where the weight is in the boat...its not fool proof.
