We've been playing around trying to find the sweet spot. Put everyone on the left side of the boat and do a slight turn when you're pulling. This is the kids beginner board and my new board is on the way which will help alot, I can use my (real surfboard) without the rope but we just dont get the momentum with this small one.

This was last saturday and we only had 3 adults and 3 small kids on board, I'm not a fan of fat sacs so usually we have 8 people in the boat and cruise around 10-12 like sanjuan said.

My 240 lbs son inlaw who has wakeboarded only a few times popped right up and had a blast.

I have a 93 and we can surf a little but not for a long time. I put a seat in the back, about 1000lbs, 500 up front and 400 on the starboard side. and anyone else that I can on the starboard side. I drive between 9.5 and 11 looking for the sweet spot. We are on a shallow lake (9 feet) so we go to the upper lake on the chain and look for water over 10 feet and the wake gets better. That boat loves to have weight up front.
