I have a 1995 star craft with a pylon and 120hp motor. It does not have a large wake, but I was wondering if you could get some air off that?

If you have good technique you can do back flips in the flats...

That said get some ballast and have some fun until you can get something that throws a bigger wake.

The great thing about wakeboarding is that the fun you get from it doesn’t have to be proportional to the size of your boat, just look at all the people that like cable parks….

Learning behind a boat with a small wake will force you to learn proper technique, which will make you a better rider in the long run. Most of the riders I've seen who started with a big wake are sloppier than riders who started with a small wake. Big wakes are fun, but they allow you to be lazy...not good for a beginner. If you're edging and timing your pop correctly you shouldn't have a problem learning most beginner-intermediate level tricks behind your boat without any additional weight.
