It seems that in order to get a sweet surf wake you need to sac the crap out of your boat. So what if you have different riders in your crew (goofy and reg.). Is there a product out there or has anyone made something that can be easily shifted or moved from one side of the boat to the other.

What do you mean by easy?

I have 270 lbs of pop bags and I have 80 lb of bar bell weights that I mount on the tower. I switch between regular and goofy all the time - it's a real work out. Then I empty one aft lock and fill the other.

We just make eveyone ride on the regular side. The funny thing is, it's my boat but I'm the only goofy rider. 3 years ago we got tired of moving the weight. It did forced me to learn how to ride back side. Then I learned how to ride switch.

I put the lead in 1.5 gallon gas containers that way I can just slide them back and forth between the sides depending on what side you want to surf. I have removed the hard tanks and replaced them with 750# sacks, so all I have to do is just flip two switches (one to empty, one to fill) and slide over the 400 lbs of lead I have in the gas containers and we're all set.

One 1.5 gallon gas container holds right around 60lbs. I bought the lead shot off a dude on ebay. GREAT guy and will bargain with you if you buy in bulk.

search lead shot. He sells them in 25lb increments, but I got 500lbs for $300 delivered.
