I have my dad thinking very seriously on a 1999 Supra Launch. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this boat and how the wake performance is. Thanks for your help.

This boat has a really good wake when weighted down. It doesn't quite have the snap off the top like an older VLX with a wedge, and it's not like hitting a curb like a SAN 210. The wake is wider than average which can be good or bad.

It's also one of the least sensitive boats to left/right weight distribution. The wakes don't wash out nearly as much as they do on most boats when the weighting is off (new X-1, SAN 210, etc.)

Love this boat, we put extra hard tanks in ours and added 350 in lead. We run about 2400lbs in ballast and the wake is sweet.

Best direct drive wakeboard wake period. It's a little more vert at the lip than my VLX.

I will say, though, that I've never been able to get a good surf wake out of one, and I think by now we've tried every weight amount & placement possible in that hull.

Not the "best" surf wake but it more then does the trick.

We a Supra Launch direct drive and we have never filled the hard tank and with ten people in the boat it threw a pretty good size wake. I dont know to much about the wake surfing, but for wakeboarding were impressed.

That looks a little better than the best we've ever gotten one built up. What's your weight setup?
