Question about push...

When I wakesurf on a hyperlite landlock (long, nice and floaty board) everything goes well, speed, push-wise. But then when I switch to the Tsunami, more skim-style, it feels like the push from the wake always wants to send me forward into the back of the boat. It's a faster board, so what should I do- slow the boat speed a little? Ride the brakes on the board more? Thx.

That's interesting. It's usually the opposite for me. Lots of push on a long surf style board. Usually have to work harder on a shorter skim style to go fast.

My daughter about ended up on the platform on our first trip since integrating my ballast. Turns out with the automation, my patience and the vent hoses let me fill them slap full! I told her to ride the brakes, but she didnt like that. It cut her movement. I ended up .... Gasp!.... lightening the load. Just in the back though, kept the wave longer but eased up on the push. she was much happier and since the board is a thruster I could still ride with no problem. My son rode the skim but he is only about 160lbs.

there is never enough push for me but you can always speed up a little. That elongates the wave but in my experience takes away some of the push.

Have you moved your stance as far back on the board as you can?

What type boat? If gen 2 then increase the amount of tab will lengthen the wave and decrease push. If not increasing speed will do the same.

Center tab will flatten it too but it might also dirty up the wave. I was talking about the surf tab. We surf normally around 60% but when we have newbies or little kids I'll change it to 100%. If we want a really steep wave I'll go 40% and slow down a little.

On mine the center tab just screws things up.
