Hi,

Everytime i go over 30mph with my boat (supreme v220) it has a tendency to go left and it is leaning on this side. I really don't know why. Any ideas?

thanks

Assuming that you have a right hand screw propeller it is just the result of the prop twisting the boat in the opposite direction from the way that it is spinning. The boat has a tendancy to turn to the left for the same reason. A boat will "walk" to the right from a stop if it is a right hand prop and at high speed the back of the boat trying to go to starboard makes the bow turn to port. Everything is ok.

Even your boat wants the surf wake setup,just give in.

My propeller is left hand turn. The steering is pulling heavilly to the left. I tried other boats (not wakeboard boats though) and didn't notice this problem.

You can shape the trailing edge of the rudder with a course file to make the boat steer neutral. It could also be bent tracking fins like tinydubb suggested.
The part I'm not so sure of is why it leans to the left unless Ricardo is correct. Do you have the boat evenly loaded?
