We usually do not fill the KGB because everyone I have spoken to about this says to fill the back corner. I can't remember the back corner of our boat near as low to the water as the above pictures...
depending on the amount of people and if we put the L shaped Sac on the port seat... we can put a rub rail in the water. we run the KGB full to half full... As one pro here in texas put it.... Add weight until you feel uncomfortable... then add a little more.

Dang! You guys got the boat down for a great surf wake. Some of the best I have seen. I am jealous! I don't like wake boarding, but I love surfing I guess I love slalom more, so my 91 is staying.

I have a 1990 TriStar. I am 6'1 and 230. I have a CWB Ride and I cannot find the sweet spot ont he wave. I have tried speeds between 9 and 13 and it seems like I am not going fast enough to stay on it.

Besides my daughters and their friends, there is no real weight in the boat.

Can anyone help with what I need to do?

Thanks

I have no 1st hand experience with that hull, but you will need to get some fatsacs.
Put the biggest one in the back corner, try a 400# sac on the side mid-ship. Move people around front to back as needed. Speed could be anywhere from 10-12, we surf @ 11.5 mph.

I have surfed behind a 90 tristar with some added ballast it does make a nice wake. If I recall correctly the proper speed was in the 9.5-10.5 range with about 750lbs of added weight (in the form of people and ballast)

Here is my wife trying to surf for the fisrt time. She has not ever done anything behind a boat, and she got up on the 3rd attempt. I attribute it to my great instructing skills J/K.

The second pict is of my wave. It's a 97 PS205 with 2 750# fat sacks. One under the back seat which is lifted to the sundeck possition, and one down the side. When I'm on it the wave it comes up to my mid-thigh/hip.

It's getting kind of boring just going straight behind the boat. Time to learn how to do some tricks.
