For the first time in a couple of years I am pumped to start some wakesurfing and do some boarding. I haven't wakesurfed a ton but have done enough to play around with weight placement and ordered a custom sac from Fly High. It is a 32"x32"x32" cube and is somewhere in the neiborhood of 1000 pounds. I have a '97 Malibu VLX without a wedge and was wondering what else I could try. I run a 400 in the bow about 400 in the ski locker, a 750 surf side in the back locker and my cube behind the driver seat, and sometimes depending on people a 400 on the rear bench seat. The wave seams to be tall enough but I want a little more length. I have read the vlx can have a shorter wave but if I maybe move the 400 from the bench seat to the bow would that legthen my wave a little? Here are some pics, I don't think I had a 400 on the rear bench when I was surfing this day. I usually ride at about 11 mph
Thanks for the replys. I may have to try a little more up front to lengthen her out. Now I just have to wait for the ice to clear. Hoping I can ride in just over 2 weeks from now with how warm it is getting.
honestly, you have a really nice wake for that boat. I dont think you need the weight up front because it might take away some height and also flatten out the transition. But obviously it wont hurt to try it haha.
