I bought the boat last summer and we used it for wakeskating/wakeboarding...now I wanna surf. how should I set it up? how fast should I go? I got a bow sac ( 1 000#) with a tsunami pump. what else should I get? normal crew of 4-5 people so around 800# in body weight.
thanks for the input guys!

Welcome to the fun part. Figuring out your wave. There's no easy answer here. Just do this:

Clear up at least 4 hours on your schedule
Grab a bunch of beers
Grab a bunch of ballast
Hit the water

Throw a ton of weight in the back of the boat, on the side you're surfing. Throw a couple hundred pounds up front. Dial your speed in somewhere between 10 and 12MpH. Adjust all the variables til you're stoked.

Someone with experience with your boat will be more helpful with weight amount and speed, but it all follows the above general formula.

Dude...if you can get your wave dialed in 4 hours you are a better man than I!
