I have wakesurfed behind a couple of boats, and loved it to death. My family is now looking to surf behind our boat, but the question is, how should we set up the weight?

It is a direct drive, and we have 400 pounds of internal ballast, a 370 pound sack, and a 750 pound sack. We were planning on putting the 750 in the very back corner, and the 370 in the ski locker, and filling up the internal. but we would like any suggestions on how to set up our boat.

Be careful. On my friend's Nautique we sunk it so low that he had water going into the fuel vent (which was located right next to the fuel fill). It'll produce an awesome wake.

We ended up keeping about half the weight centered, and putting 3 people plus the 750 on the Port side of the boat. It was an awesome wake at about 10mph.

Thanks for the warning, I would not have known to look for that.
