I have recenly tried to wakesurf a few times. We are getting about a 20 sec. ride max, but can't get the wake to smooth out. Last attempt we had 1000lb in the rear 300lb in the front with about 6 people on board sitting on one side. Is this to much weight, it seems like no speed will keep it from rolling over.

I have a 96 Prostar 205. Note this is for goofy footers. We use the following - 450 lb sack by engine cover behind driver (we have Lounge sack with inflatable back rest). Another 450/500 pound sack in back placed as much to driver side corner as possible. One person sits on the sack behind driver. Another sits in back driver side corner.....but you have to rotate this person because of carbon monoxide. Others sit in bow on drivers side. This produces a wave just slightly above our knee that all our group (young, old, male, female) can ride without the rope for as long as they want from 12' to 8' behind the boat. Depending on weight of rider we run 10 - 10.5 mph with Perfect Pass. We also use a Inland Surfer Green Room, which definitely helps the bigger guys. Hope this helps. <BR>
