Prostar wakesurfing

Can I wake surf with my 2009 prostar?

How much weight in fat sacks will I need? And are there any other tip for doing it.

Surfing a prostar is going to be like skiing an X-star. Yes you can do it. Yes you can enjoy it. But ultimately it's not the best machine for it and eventually you will want something better. Maybe.

As far a sacking it out you shouldn't need too much weight to get it to lean. Maybe just one of the long tube fatsacs and maybe another. I'd recommend bringing some friends and adjusting them one at a time to find where you want the weight. Also a good board will help.

I understand, just looks like fun. Just something to enjoy after a long day skiing.

I wasn't sure if it was possible with the prostar.

Mate Marcus brown has videos of him surfing a 197 and the new prostar. with no sacs. You can surf pretty much anything if you make people sit up the back.

And then there are some boats that shouldn't be surfed behind.

Having zero knowledge about it. What's the best speed? So just load the rear or the boat with people? General boat setup if ballast is added? What's a good board for prostar wake and couple of guy who just want to ride along maybe enjoying a beer.

There is a guy in Ohio surfing an X9 (209) with just bags. He posted in the MasterCraft Boat Owners Facebook page. His comment was:

We surf all the time. 750lb bag across the back. Another 750 up the side and the front ski locker bag full.

Here is the group... https://www.facebook.com/groups/1510325659228039/

Get a wake-shaper or build one yourself. My boat went from mediocre surf wake even when HEAVILY weighted and leaning to the surf side, to very good and no need to lean the boat (still needs weight though).

Here's the original thread: http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=62614
