I've got the boat and equipment dialed in this season and Iíve had about everyone in my crew surfing. Our top weighted rider is about 260 and lightest about 160. Most are goofy riders but my boat favors regular riders - prop rotation.
All of us have been able to ride the Broad Cast 5.6. Iím about 220 and ride the regular side of the wake, itís easy and a lot of fun. It's a bit tougher for the 260-pounder on the goofy side.
I havenít needed any additional weight on the boat but itís important to put as much weight as you can on surf side of the boat. We move seat cushions, boards, and other junk to help weight the surfing side. I figure moving 1 pound from the non-surf side to the surf side is the same as adding 2 pounds to the surf side. Weíve been surfing with stock ballast and a crew as small as three.
Itís a lot of fun get out there and do-it.
