Do you guys ride that fast because you weigh more ? I weigh 206 and ride at 22mph but my friend weighs 145lb and rides at 21 and gets alot more air then I do.

205 riding at 23.5-25, but that has been recently at 25 because i always used to ride our old bayliner at no more than 22 but i think that was just because the wake would get flat any faster than that. No problem that speed 75' out any more.

240 @ 23.5 - 24.5 mph - Wakesetter VLX, with ballast + wedge, 75 out.
Until a couple years ago I rode @ like 19-20 mph, 65 out and saw a huge improvement as I sped up and moved back. Not sure why you're asking but I hope this helps.

I weigh 180lbs and ride at 18-19 mph at 65ft out...and am a beginner just getting to where I can land W2W jumps. I also ride a 140cm board. Could I improve my riding if I sped up to say 21-22.5 and moved back to 70ft-75ft? At only 18-19 mph at 65ft, I find it hard to get any farther than W2W...getting out to the flats is very difficult.

Thats a little slow isnt it, what length do you ride at? You must have some forearms from hell with that much resistance.

So you ride with camera guys all the time? What are the camera guys riding in, a 20hp dingy?
