Hello everyone. So i am surfing behind a 2000 Malibu Sportster. I am having trouble finding the sweet spot. I am using the wedge. I keep getting a huge rooster tail. When I don't get a rooster tail, I can not find the sweet spot. Can anyone help me how much weight I need and where on the boat that weight should be? And I am not alloed to have ballast on my lake. The lake is too small and our docks are to low to the water for the big waves. The only weight i can have is people. Please Help!!
Thanks!

Sounds like you need allot of people then. Or hide some tractor weights. I had a 96 Malibu sunsetter. The wedge causes a higher rooster tail.

One question is your sportster a dd or v drive?

Put all your friends on the surf side as far to back as you can. The have your driver turn slightly to the side your surfing.

I will try this. The Sportster is a dd. I think this would make the wake smaller since the engine is in the middle of the boat and not the back. So should I put the wedge down? And Thanks for the Help!!

I would try it with out the wedge if you can get a bunch of people.

I surf a 96 prostar 205. Though I'm able to weight it. I put 800 in the back, 500 on the surf side and sometimes 500 in front though it surfs w/o the front weighted.

I'd stick four 200lbs guys in the back two 200lbs on the surf side and see what happens.

Without ballast its really not going to work. Like some said if you can get like 8 or 9 people piled on each other in the rear surf side corner.
