Need some help!!

I have been reading like crazy on here about surfing!

We have never done it once! We ski and barefoot- That said we have a 94 Prostar 205 and a 93 Barefoot 200. One is mine and one is my wifes brothers.

We would like to try this if either of these boats have a chance at giving us a wake that we can do something on! Which would you recommend to work on the wake?

As far as a board I am thinking the CWB Ride? Like I said we know nothing and just want to try it. My wife has kind of gotten out of skiing and she sees all the pictures of the women and kids on the surf boards and she wants to try it.

Thanks for the help!!

Let's rule out the outboard powered BF200! The '94 205 is probably surfable with enough weight and the right board/size rider, but it's going to get boring pretty quickly unfortunately.

Agree, the BF will not put out a big enough wake for surfing...the 205 will get you going but nothing to brag about...

the trans and engine in the early boats were not designed for that kind of load... you can get started surfing but like rockman says - nothing to brag about - plus really lugging the motor and straining the trans not the greatest idea. the v-drive trans a much better solution for this.

So can you surf behind the Prostar 205? I have a 92 Prosport 205...I know somebody says it gets boring quick.
