the one in front and the one on the side you are surfing on. then everyone in the boat to the side you are surfing on. might have to move people front and back to get it perfect.

Not sure what boat you have Nacho, but depending on how many people you have on the boat in that pick, you might need to add additional ballast to the back surf side corner to get the wave up a little bit more. Looks like you are getting close though. Can't tell from the pic what board you are riding either... You might need a larger board for that wake...

Jose,
You need to ley us know what boat you have and how much stock ballast . I am sure that you will need additional sacs.

thanks guys.

boat: MC tristar 220. 0ld school. 22 ft huge beam. If i can get it dialed, i think it will put out a nice wave.

board: LF skimskate 54. i thought this was a decent board to get the hang of things.. .wrong.?

nacho -- that may not be the best board to get started with, but you might like it over the long term if you can get the wake dialed. I would recommend a Fly High 750lb fat sac and Tsunami pump (if your boat can take the weight - i'm not really familiar with it). Or get a few heavy dudes to sit in the back corner and along the side to test out different weight scenarios.

we had about 500 across the back and 600 in the corner. prolly 250 up front, right side. and about 300 in lead spread front to back on the right side. i'll keep playing with it. any of you guys with a 22ft boat, how are you loading it?
