I would love to ride a chest/shoulder height wave. Best I've gotten so far is stomach height. What was making that?

I dunno but does it look like to anyone else this guy is about 4ft tall with a size 15 front foot? His foot is 2/3 the length of his shin, lol

Thats a great pic, and the MB makes a big, great wave, but you have to level it to remove greater illusion of height.

It is a cool picture, though impractical if it were as big as it appears. I would get fined and banned for making a wake half that size on any lakes in my state.

I call BS. What boat? What weight? Where's the video? Where's some different angles?

Seriously? Here is was about to go put 4,500 lbs of ballast in my little 21' 1,350# "max capacity" boat to try and recreate that wave.

Unless I am reporting it wrong, if you are Facebook, like the Boarders Magazine that published this pic taken by Micah and then read the comments. No matter what, still looks a pretty bad azz wave to me!

You can see it's the same guy, same jacket and shorts, same watch, same board...

its actually only about 4300 lbs and yes it was taken from close to waters edge and just was a cool outcome that got posted. it got posted by several other accounts on instagram and was soon "dubbed" that it was photoshopped. there was no photoshop involved at all. just a cool angle. funny to see all the "reviews" and thaughts by everyone for sure!!

Is it your boat, Bill? If so, post up some pics of it! We all like pics! I see that you have some on instagram, I will check them out on there too.

I have taken pics from this angle before, and this one looks just a bit funny, the guy looks way small. Like he's about 4 foot tall LOL The other pics show the real size of the wave, which isn't that impressive to me.

Im sure Bill has some....and impressive or not its plenty of wake to boost off thats for sure...and is by far the Best wave i have rode. Not to say i have rode alot (Malibu MXZ with surfgate) (moomba outback...lol) (2009 SAN) (2005 X-1) (2013 Tige Z3 with the convex) (and mine 2012 MB F21 Tomcat)

If the MB is anything like a Z3, in boat pictures don't do it justice because the transom is so tall that you can't see the front of the pocket and the fact that it's 6' longer than the pic shows. I'd hit it!

Yes, I agree, you can't get the camera low enough like you would on other boats. Still good looking pics/wave and I have seen Derricks in person, its legit. There is always one picture that makes these look even more crazy big than normal, they are fun but can give the wrong impression. Showing lots of pics above, is much better. Always fun to still include the crazy one though, those are always fun.

Looks like a great wave! It's impressive the MB can move with that much ballast

Ragboy...I agree posting Los of pics help. But someone asked if they could post this just to get a rile or of some folks. All in good fun. We Tokd him we would key it go for a little while then post the explanation.

I'm on my phone now but I'll post some pics shortly off of my laptop of the boat.

theres no doubt Tige throws a great wave. I thinkg the RZ2 is one of the sexiest boats on the market.

Awesome pics Bill! I know Hunter that was competing in the EWT is drooling over those B52's and trying to get his dad to buy one. 12 year old kid already knows what boat he wants to surf behind! Pretty cool!
