Well I didn't but a good friend of mine did. Finally got a chance to have a decent rider get a pull in behind my 06 Tahoe and we were quite impressed. The wake isn't terrible (he was getting nice air on a couple back rolls and his w2w) Didn't have any issues w/ holding speed unless I tried to keep right about 22, bump it up to 25 and it would hold nicely. Can't wait to throw some ballast at this thing and see how it does. The river was puuurrrfect yesterday evening, couldn't have asked for better riding conditions. Here's a quick pic of the wake from Sunday, didn't have a chance to get the ones from last night loaded up. This is at 25mph w/ 4 of us in the boat and two coolers.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/347038.jpg" alt="Upload">

I have boarded behind a 2003 Tahoe and it was a pretty fun little boat.

Adam, that was just going off the factory speedo. (which I know is never correct)

Those are nice boats. I have been seeing more and more around here. <BR>I usually ride pretty fast as well. I am beginner but find it easier to ride at 25 then slower. At higher speeds it is easier to cut and the wake is harder and easier to pop off of for me. <BR>4 people and 2 coolers!! I bet you did have a good time.

Each time I head out I've seen more and more of them. Only one other white and yellow though. My buddy last nite like it better at an "indicated" 22mph and he said the wake had a real nice lip to it. He was riding at 70' also. So coming from someone that normally rides behind a 2000 Malibu I was happy. <BR> <BR>HAHA. Yea we had to sit out in the cove for a while before heading back. All that "soda" took its toll on me.
