I have an '02 SANTE, and a landlock. I am a total newbie when it comes to surfing of any kind. <BR> <BR>I tried stock ballast, with the front tank full, starboard tank full, and port empty, and it was not big enough for me to surf w/o the rope. <BR> <BR>I have about 600 pounds in lead I will use next time I go out to see if I can find the sweet balance of weight. (I know you said no lead, but you will need more weight if it is additional sacks or people.) <BR> <BR>I ride on the starboard side also so that helps with the CC prop rotation.

I have the little LF Skimskate, but have no problems to surf this with only the driver in the boat. We use (the star &amp; port) tank both full and a 540lbs sac in the ski locker. <BR>Off course, the more weight (people) on the starboard side gets better. But this setup already works for me. <BR> <BR>Oh yeah, when taking out the ski locker sack and put on the back seat it gets alot better. But mostly we don't botter the hastle. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by Laptom on March 03, 2005)

I used to (just sold my SAN) put 2 large sacks in the port side locker (filling the locker to capacity), a large sack on the port side bench, and a small one on the floor. It would put the rub rail at water level and produce a really good/steep surf wake. <BR> <BR>In order to weight the starboard side, I would load it the same but it did not require the small sack. Bottom line, it takes a sh*t load of weight to produce a good surf wake. You just have to play with the weight and the speed (I found slower "9.5" worked better) to see what works for you. <BR> <BR>The same setup does not work for everybody. Bigger folks or smaller boards require bigger surf wakes. It sounds like you folks aren't using enough weight. I went through the same frustration. Try slower speeds too, most folks talk about using 10-12 even 13 mph with their boats or setups.
