The big wave makes surfing!

1) mls ski locker bag filled (350 lbs)
2) 400 lbs of lead under the back seat as far left as possible.
3) 600 lbs of water in the rear left locker (Budda bag).
4) all people to the left (except for the driver).
5) speed = 10.3 on PP

On my VLX, the rub rail is running just under the water line for the entire back half of the boat.

I have surfed in my VLX with only the wedge, a locker sack one person on the platform and driver. I prefer a bigger wake, but didn't want to fill everything

Hey Matthew,

Do you really let someone on your ski platform while riding? THat is a huge fine and a big chance for someone to die from CO gas. Just a heads up. Looking out for a fellow boarder.

I work with all the marine patrol so a fine is not a problem, and for the exhaust fumes, the person on the back kind of lays back on the sunpad after the rider throws them the rope. We switch people in the back every rider. Thanks for the concern though Rod:-)

Wow wakesurfing thereís a waste of time. And us wakeboarders get mad at tubers and jet skiers for messing up the water, pretty hypocritical if you ask me considering all your doing is sending triple up size rollers every where. NICE WORK!!!!

Shawn, I think most of us bust out the surfboard on weekends when the water is too rough to wakeboard, at least I do.

Maybe thatís the case for some but from what ive seen on my home lake and at oraville people like to choose the calmest spots on the lake and just to circles, which in turn absolutly destroys the water.

I don't ever do circles that is a myth:-) I board on a long narrow lake and the big rollers just crash on the shore. If there is smooth water I am boarding!
