Smallest surfable wake!
 
With all the hate and trolling about the largest and best surf wave out there, I thought this would be fun... Maybe this weekend, try to get a pic of your smallest surfable wake! Say you surfed it for at least 10 sec before you fell out.

Post up the ride and how much or lack of ballast you used! :p Maybe for additional points, post up your smallest surfable wave followed by your perfect wave!

I don't have a picture but we actually learned how to surf behind my RZ2 with a 5 gallon bucket full of water as ballast and 1 person sitting on the back.

Ok, my submission... Funny thing I was trying for a big wave, but this is all I could get. And yes I know I look like a retard.. haha

I think surf time should be 60 s. Come on let's see what a 12 ft John boat can do.

Thats a great idea. I think I may have some video of this somewhere. This was our first time attempting. NO ballast, 2007 24Ve, LF something or other.

RJ, Whitney and Ashley were all able to ride that little wake with that board. And we thought it was so cool.

no pics, but i have surfed behind a MasterCraft 205 slalom boat with 500lb ballast in the corner, im 130 and was riding a board about 6 feet long. even with such a long board, i could just barely stay on the wake.
