Is any one surfing behind an 80's Ski Nautique 2001? I was told they make great surf wakes. I cant seem to get it right though. If you could tell me how much weight you use, where to place it, and which side throws a better wake and at what speed, it would be GREATLY appreciated.

Heck yeah! Throw that 80's nautique in the water and follow these simple steps!

#1 - Sac up with about 1100lbs in the back corner. (image)
#2 - Drink Red Bull (image 1)
#3- Jump in- burr! (image 3)
#4- Carve it up! (image 2)

We had one driver and one passenger in the boat when these pictures were taken. Contrary to popular belief, with the right trim, both sides of an old 1984 ski nautique are fun to surf from. Good times!

From my experience surfing behind my buddy's '04 CC SAN (prop spins to the right) and my '99 MC 205v (left hand prop rotation) the side your prop spins to seems to be cleanest to surf on. So on his we surf on right side, and mine surfs left side.

Here is a picture of the other side of the sn2001 wake without the rider. We're still tweaking. More updates in a few weeks. Note that we added 300lbs of sumo sac to the back seat vs the first pic I posted.

I have an 84 nautique and having a hard time getting a good wake to surf. I have 1300lbs of sacks but the wake is all white water. How fast do you go and how can you change the trim? Any suggestions?

surf between 9-11mph. if it is too washy, move some of the weight forwards
