I've just got into wakesurfing this year and I am pumped enough to think of trading my boat for a more dedicated surf boat. Currently I own a super sport. I live right on a giant lake (Ontario), but usually trailer my boat an hour or so to flatwater for wakeboarding. Its kind of like wasting a lake. I like how when the smaller lakes I ride get chopped up, its still fine for surfing. If you had a giant 23+ foot deep V like an enzo, how much more choppy can conditions get untill it starts to not be fun anymore?

The conditions can be pretty bad if you have enough ballast since the boat breaks up a lot of the chop while you are surfing.

I tend to take a lot of water over the bow when surfing in rough water. I also run 1200lbs in my bow

There is definitely an improvement in choppy water with a deep V boat, but even with a 24footer chop will really affect your surf game.

i live on lake erie where it is not uncommon for it to go from flat to 4 footers in less than an hour. my brother-in-law has a 23' moomba and it takes a pounding on lake erie, i switched from I/O to a 05' sv230 enzo and the boat handles this lake so much better. now surfing in 4 footers is out but it has gotten pretty ruff and we still make it work. 1100lb in back locker and 650 under seat plus two 40lb litter girls!
