Not sure I would feel OK surfing behind an I/O.

Why are you looking at boats still Adam, you gotta start looking to put your poppy seed through colledge.

Yeah can you say major head trauma that's almost as bad as using your i/o for teak surfing lol :-)

lol only a real idiot would surf behind an I/O, you should ask why he's selling it, maybe due to a wakesurfing injury? lol. if you have never seen this before...

Nah Chris, not really looking, especially at an I/O. Just bored browsin around this morning. Wish we could play hooky & go ride!

Notice something in the pics. I thought at first this dude had no idea what he was talking about, but then I noticed he actually has an LF surfer in the boat? Moron! I wish I could have seen this dude out on Canyon.

lmao yeah i saw the board in there too, i wonder if he really surfed, or if he just held on to a short wakeboard rope 10ft behind the boat and told people he surfed.

Isn't Canyon lake in Ca. and he lives in San Anton. That must be a long drive.

what i noticed was
"this boat was strictly for wakesurfing"
and there is a wakeboard?
why?

actually there is a liquid force surfer on the port side under the gunnel.

I'm sure like so many others they realized the boat they bought is suboptimal for wakesports.

Guys, you're supposed to notice that there's actually a Liquid Force wakesurf board in the boat.

Apparently the guy really tried to surf behind that thing, yikes! Unless he was just using the surfboard on a long rope.

i can't imagine this boat could put up a wakesurf capable wake anyway. No room for sacs anywhere in the back. Anybody going to email him and post his response here?

Erik, more like 'i can't imagine a 190hp I/O being able to get up to speed with the amount of weight required to surf'

lol yeah theres no way. before i bought my supra (before i was really into watersports as more than just playing around on some type of board), i had a really nice 17' gastron i/o. i sold it this spring when i bought my supra, but last year when i finally decided it was time for me to take wakeboarding more seriously, we had put a 660# on the floor in the back, and i swear to you i had to go full throttle and then walk myself up into the bow to get it to plane out (it only had a 135hp engine). but we did learn our backrolls behind it sans tower...it was so much easier this year behind the supra lol.

I think we should email and ask him some standard questions about the boat...In fact I will and I'll post his response

How is the wake for wakesurfing?
How much additional weight do you need to put in the boat to wake surf?
Has the prop ever gotten in the way of a wakesurfer?
