Welcome to San Diego, and Wakeworld. I am sure you will like both places.
I would be happy to take you for pulls. I have an 05 VLX, couple of 400 lb sacks, and 400 lbs of lead (no real fat friends though). We have been trying to get the whole surfing thing dialed in, and have been doing OK, but are always game for some tips. I try to make it to the lake a couple times a week, and right now it is usually in the afternoon.
Since you are new to SD, I am not sure if you are aware of the lake hours. San Vicente is open Thu-Sun, closed the other days. Basically sunrise to sunset. El Capitan just opened a few weeks ago, but from what I understand, it is pretty small, getting pretty crowded, and is open, I believe, Fri-Sun. Other than that, you have the salt water (Mission Bay and SD Bay).
PM me and we can talk more. Looking forward to getting you out there. We really like surfing, but sure could use some tips.
