For the first year I will be wakeboarding behind a true wakeboat and today was the first time out... I have read posts on this forum for about eight months now and have learned alot but when push comes to shove I was lost today trying to figure out how to weight the boat and how to work the wake plate..
I am now in my buddies Supra launch 24 ssv, sweet ride but I really dont know how to weight it properly or even how or what the wake plate is supposed to do... I guess what I am saying is how on earth do I make this boat perform?
We filled the back ballast all the way up and the front about half way. We had a huge wake but it seemed to be washed out, tall and soft. I was kinda hoping for a wake that would be more firm and a little less washed out.
And also, how in the world do you maneuver these boats in the dock areas haha this thing drives like a loose cannon when at idle, especially in reverse it seems like it doesnt want to steer very well...
I guess I have a lot to learn but would appreciate anyone's input on how to set this thing up for an enjoyable afternoon!
