I took my new boat out last weekend and tried to see how good I could get the wake for surfing...2006 B-52 V23 with stock left ballast full (approx 1,200lbs) and three people. After only having an I/O the wake looks good to me…But is it surfable?
Very surf-able. I've been behind an '06 Tige 21i, with no ballast, and was able to go ropeless. There was just no maneuverability or room to progress on the wake without the addition of sacs. As long as you're having fun, that's all that matter.
