Aside from that being a super cool in the hell did you get your wake that big? What kind of boat, how much weight do you put in it, and where do you put the weight?

Thanks, yeah it's behind my 2003 Avy from my profile pic. I've got the stock center and rear locker ballast full + a 350 in the rear locker + another 350 across the rear seat. And I ride at 11.7. It doesn't take a lot to get a great surf wake out of an Avy.

Yea how do you get started?

No, I thought about trying that but since she weights almost 80 pounds I decided against it. So I deep water started and got her up on the first try. She's a natural. I have a video of it that I'm going to try to post to Vimeo tonight; I'll post the link once I do.

That is awesome! Don't forget you had 5 or 6 people in the boat too.

Ahhh...that's a minor detail. Ha Ha Ha yeah I did have a few people in the boat. But, if I'm short on people, that's when I fill up the ole 540 and throw it in the floor.

How do I train my choc lab to do that. She goes crazy when I am out riding. I think she would love it cause she hates to be away from me. She will not jump off the boat cause she knows the rules but if she was able to ride with me, I think she would be happy and love it. I love this pic.

Alright, I just posted the video. The video is of our first time, so youíll notice that itís not the smoothest get up (which is why my wife is laughing at me the whole time) and that the wake is much smaller than in the photo. We only had the stock rear ballast full; I didnít want to get too crazy on our first time. But since the wake drew as much attention as having the doggy on the board with me; I added some footage of the surf wake at the end.

I love your dog! Our dog won't even jump off the dock, never mind a 10 foot cliff!
Old    Rocky Cathey (cmcathy1)      Join Date: Dec 2007       09-12-2008, 8:54 PM Reply   
Thanks, it's funny because we have two dogs and they are brother and sister. The boy is the one at the beginning just floating and the one that jumped off the cliff, but he wouldn't dare wake surf with me. On the other hand, the girl won't jump off cliffs but loves getting behind the boat.

Lily is sooo cute!!! How old is she? Our lab is 6 years old. Is that too old to teach dogs new tricks?? :-)

Amazing! My dog won't even get her paws wet.. I think she'd find a new best friend if I tried to pull that off

Mad props for including the dogs out on the boat. I take ours all the time and people trip. Then I have some buddies that would'nt even consider having a dog on the boat. I think the dogs like it more than we do sometimes.
I can send either of my labs from the back of the boat to the shore being like 50ft away and tell them to "take a break" and they will do exactally that then come back after going potty. People trip out but they just want to go and will pretty much do what I tell them to. stay in the boat @ a marina, load up, get out, whatever just to be included. Then the ride home in the truck looks like this........

That is so cool. I'm going to show this video to my yellow lab. Can't get him off the swim deck without a hot dog on a stick.
