Someone told me wake surfing behind a boat is really bad for the motor b/c it boggs down the engine. <BR> <BR>Any suggestions or comments on this? I really wanna surf, but it's his boat and if he thinks it bad for it there's not much I can do about it <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" ALT=":-(" BORDER=0><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0>

You are right, his boat~his rules <BR> <BR>I think it depends on the boat, motor, prop, and gearing as to if it is bad for the motor. <BR> <BR>On the Wakesetter 25 with a monster 4 blade and a 8.1 litre engine it barely works up a sweat, on a Wakesetter XTI 23 it kills the engine and fuel economy.

Dude I wouldnt worry about It to much. It may load up a little so just throttle it up to blow out the carbon.
