Unless they changed something, the 208's had no center ballast? The 212's do I think, but regardless you need to add at least one sack in the bow and one on what ever side you're surfing at minimum on top of the factory ballast, and bring lots of friends. wakebrdjay is correct not a very big range to ride on the 208 load it down and then add more. That sounds about right on the tab 75% we run at almost 12mph on the 208 if on not mistaken, I know it was faster than the other two boats. The boat is too wide and stubby the surf wake can't get enough transition, strange never really got a great surf wake from that boat. Wakeboard wake is good!
