When wakesurfing is it best to head in a straight line or make a nice big circle? So far I've been driving in a big circle.

Depending on the boat - a slight turn to either side works best.

Try it both ways and do what works best for your setup.

Straight. IMO, If your having to drive in a circle your boat is not weighted properly.

Thanks guys. I am new at wakesurfing and had sombody tell me to make a slight turn when surfing. It's cool for the winter but that's gonna be tough when there's more people on the water. As far as weight I fill the stock port tank(800lbs). I just got a sac(440lbs), what do you recomend the locker or the bow?

We fill the front ballast too - helps to push the whole boat down in the water & keep the bow down.

Monk, My boat has a much better wake with the 500# stock ballast filled in the front along with the side 800#. <BR>Board More/Work Less! <BR>J$

J$ had to throw the salt in the wound with that stock front 500.lol. Thats ok I think the next MB will be the team edition. Thanks for the info guys..
