There are alot of recent threads on this. Here is one suggestion:

-Don't do it behind an I/O or Outboard.

somebody else had a 197 and had a pic of there wake on here and it was pretty good, maybe check with them. Sorry don't remember the name, but he had half of the neighborhood in the boat at the time of the pic.

I know Neil and his kids do this. I also would like to try. Good website to read up on is: http://www.howtowakesurf.com/ and will give you guide on getting your first board.

Especially where you are located I would try to pick up a used surfboard.

Have you tried to see the size of the wake at ~8MPH?

The Landlock with smaller fins is our favorite intermediate board at an intermediate price. Smaller slalom boats can put up very good surf wakes. But they will be sharper. A longer board on your wake will not be better. We found if the board is too long it can not ride on the small radius of the smaller wake without nose diving.
