Sand. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the 45. The new 30's have a phenomenal surf wake. Would not have switched if it wasn't equal or better than the 45.

cbryan. Check out my youtube channel 'wakesurfaz' plenty of bikini surfing

Spector. Love the red twin. Right now we are running a 750 in locker, 750 under bench, and 400 in lead in the space between the two. We will put a 400 on the bench with only 3 or less surfers. I have noticed that the 30 likes all the weight in the back. Thanks for the tip on the 900 sac. I want to experiment with moving more weight aft and using less overall. Would be nice to have to fill only one, maybe 2 sacs.

We have had the boat for a week now and have logged over 20 hours of surfing. My overall impression is that the 30 may well be one of the best surf platforms in the industry. Of course, I am partial to the MC product because of the great last 5 years with the 45. However, Angie and I have surfed behind many of the other manufacturers and we are always thankful when we get home and get behind our MC

Wow! Bold statement. I know you guys get out a bunch and have way better weather than up here, but good to hear if you like the MC waves better than say a Centurion

The best setup I've tried in my 30 is 900 in the port locker and 400 on the port (coffin) seat. The shape and push of the wave was incredible.

sand. Suffice it to say, we have surfed behind some well weighted Centurions and some not so well weighted ones. I'll stand behind my statement on the 30.

Specter. Ah yes...the shape and the push....brings a smile to my face as I type and think of that wave. Thanks for that input. I was thinking of using the lead verses the 400. Then I can move them to the goofy side if we ever need to. Are you using the SUMO 900? Can you post some pics of your wave with surfers.

Good to know. I am happy to hear. I hear a lot that you have to have a lot of dead rise to create a great wave, i.e. Centurion, Tige, MB, etc. 30 hull is on the flatter side like a LSV near the transom. Your wave looks killer. MC should use it in their marketing! I will be down in the winter, plan on 190# of ballast when I'm not riding

sand. The best ballast is 'buddy ballast'. Give us a shout when you need to thaw.
