After the surf myth thread.. I figured it would be fun to see how LITTLE ballast some of you run. Who cares about the size of the wave, if your like me, you surf every now and then and just want a surfable wave with a very small amount of set up time. Or like most families just learning to surf without the rope. But obviously surfing has gotten just like boarding where it is thought you need XXXXX lbs of ballast to simply execute the activity.
Here is my contribution. This was my standard surf set up for my old boat.
2001 Tige 21V
400 lb rear locker
400 lb in integrated bow sac (I know the fly high integrated bow sac is rated for more weigh, but I am taking a guess at how much it actually filled to)
We would run this set up with a good surfable wave with only a driver in the boat. Pic is with a driver and 2 passenger (1 in observers seat and one (pictured) on port side)
