The dedication to make a project like this come to life is something to be admired.
For me & my mate it is way too big for us, we can trim the wake with the tabs from a nice ramp to a massive wall but we just can't handle it with our current skills. We tend to ride with no ballast at the moment and it seems just right for beginners but every time we load it we look like tards trying to smash our faces in to the water from varying heights and end up cutting our sets short due to "face meets water from great height syndrome".
From my newbie prospective it is not the biggest wake out there but I like the variability of shape that we can trim it to with the combo of trim tabs and weight distribution. We are looking at making the back seat into another ballast tank that can hold an extra 500L/Kg (132Gal/1100Lbs) to assist the wake surf as it needs some extra displacement to give it that extra kick.
Here is a pic with zero ballast & 3 peeps in the boat.
