Anyone had the opportunity to put in some good surfing time behind this boat? I know it is ridiculous for wakeboarding, but does that translate over into wakesurfing?

Good call would love to see what it can do! It has three tanks if I remember right, 1500lbs rear port, 1500 rear starboard and 1000 up front.

Since there's no pumps (right? or is that MB?) I would think it's hard to 'fill the front tank halfway' which is what I would probably do personally.

So maybe fill the rear starboard tank, throw a sac on the port rear seat, maybe even need a sac in front (not convenient) to get the best wave.

I would love to see it!

My biggest question is with the hull. Since it is a pure wakeboard boat by design, the hull may act like it does with the Xstar. The hull may make huge wakeboard wakes, but subpar wakesurf waves... no matter the weight.

It throws a MASSIVE surf wake, use the search button man I know there was a pic of it a while ago but it looked massive

the surf wake is pretty stellar. And the ballast tanks do have pumps and it is possible to fill the tanks half way if you want to.

Anyone know how the wave compares from goofy to regular side? Is it better on one side? By how much?

I dont have experience first hand, but I was in the market for one and asked a lot of questions....

Even from a dealer, this was the general opinion... Large surf wake both sides, better on the goofy side, VERY steep, and the transition at the bottom of the wave is very abrupt...

The abrupt transition would make it hard for me to surf.
