Added the photos and junk about the custom surf step in post #5.

I'll be testing this set up on Sat so hopefully have some feedback and lame video to show.

That's awesome.

I've got a loaner coming in tomorrow from Jason (great guy to deal with) and I reinstalled my 680lb sac for the weekend. The loaner is a 1000lb sac but I'll only have about 800lb in it on the port side of the boat. I have a 750 or 450 in the walkway and the new step. Hopefully this will give me a good idea what the final custom sac will do. I also plan to mess with filling the starboard side hard tank and see where that leads.

Nice...good work, ide love to have a crack at that wave. Im working on the step mod as we speak, gonna raise it a touch and glass the underside for a frictionless smoothe surface, trim the corners and maybe hook up hyraulics so i can raise and lower.
Also gotta moove them darn batteries.

My custom sac has finally shipped!!! It will be here tomorrow. For whatever reason production issues and my crazy design made this a 5 month wait!

Went Sat and Sunday this weekend and did some reverse video.

This video shows the wave with 3 people in the boat and 1750 lbs of ballast, factory hard tank and the new custom bag from wakemakers. As you can see, the new custom platform is completely out of the water except for small corner of it. I'll trim that down this weekend.

I'm not sure there is anything else I can do to make the wave better for surfing, but I'll keep trying.

Nice work on the upgrades, it's great to see pics of the whole process, and the video of the wake looks nice!
