I will take some next time. Yesterday when I went out we were only able to play with the ballast. It was spitting rain the whole time and we were under a bridge filling and emptying. I'll put up some photos of it next time.

Gnar, that wake doesn't look bad. My mph readout was throwing a monster wake at 22 and to make it not so monster and wide i'm having to push 25mph to look what I would call normal. What length is your rope at since your obviously clearing the wake at 22mph.

im running 2 750# in the lockers and 400# in the ski locker....hole shots are slow and speed is hard to control. Im going to experiment with less in the rear and more in the bow to see if its more "drivable".

I have been running about 350#'s in the rear on each side and 350# in the bow filler spot. I then had 2 girls in the bow and one guy port side and driver and I was happy with the wake, the launch and speed at 35mph. For surf all I need is the 570# filled all the way on one side locker and I get a nice surf wave. A little turn into the direction of the surf helps too.
