load it with weight. I would wait (some pun intended) for fly high to make bags for this boat. You can fit a few bodies in the coffin locker but the ones beside the engine will need custom bags. We surfed with it a few weeks ago with anywhere between 1000-2000# of weight in the boat... my feeling was it needed more.

We had 9 people, scattered throughout, in the boat and another 700lb bag in the back corner for port side at 11mph with surf tab 100% deployed and AA plate about 30% and it was nice and long with a lot of push. Same set up on starboard side left a surfable wake but no where near as clean as port.

Good info and thanks
Kind of a bummer the new model doesn't Just surf out of the Box?
I dont want to add a bunch of weight into storage areas I want to keep?
I could handle filling the back corner with a custom setup and pump.. 400-700 ?
But throwing 1000-2000 in bags up and down a 2014 boat? No thanks...

Really hoping to hear 1 extra bag in back Surf corner would do it....

Remember Wakeboarding wake is not the Topic...

It will surf with three people in the boat and one 700lb bag in the corner. Just not as fun. This was the set up we had the other day with a family and it works, just not as well. Make sure not to fill or put people on the non surfing side if possible as listing this boat is the key, not sinking.

You guys need to stop hoping for an awesome surf wave without weight (alot) in the boat. No boat on the market will make a world class surf wave without a minimum of 2000lbs ballast on the surf side... It's a fact... Accept it and plumb in ballast to all your storage areas and enjoy!

Instead , you must pay them $110k +++ and still RUIN YOUR BOAT, with extra Bags O Water...

Why can't the Best Mfg, figure that out?

We really like the these boats...but for $125k, I want it ALL NO EXCUSES!

You have to remember that no maker of any product will build it the way everyone will want it. If that was the case we would not have any aftermarket parts makers. Everything made can be looked at and you could say something could have been done better or more to your liking. Boats, cars, motorcycles, everything, and no matter what they cost new. When I was a kid and our family farmed and ranched we would buy a $50k plus plow and as soon as it got to our shop it would be taken apart and put back together the way we thought it should be with a few extra parts thrown in. We always new better than those high paid engineers. Same as a boat.
