So...who out there is wake surfing. Looks like it is picking up steam and wakeboarding is becoming a little less popular? Anyone here got the bug?
The really lightweight kids & chix can easily drop the rope and surf the wake indefinately.You use the rope the whole time? Most I've seen drop the rope once they are up and stay in the pocket. Or was this pic taken just after you got up? Just curious
I love wake surfing. On these boards I don't think you will find to many serious "behind the boat" type people. Most of this group likes going fast from one place to another hanging out on different beaches and coves. Which might I add, there is nothing wrong with that.So...who out there is wake surfing.

You'd have to be an idiot to do it with an outdrive....but I just read a few stories and saw a couple of videos with those types of people. sphssSome are doing it with outdrive boats and close to the props,,,, crazy.
Only with jets, Vee'z or D Drives should this be done.
Seriously,,, think about it.
we usually drop it but for big hits and airs we just hold it, plus we only had three people in the boat.You use the rope the whole time? Most I've seen drop the rope once they are up and stay in the pocket. Or was this pic taken just after you got up? Just curious
So I've heard...you have THE boat for wakesurfing.devil I wonder how the epics are though. 4000lbs of balast.We're into it. Just picked up a Malibu 247 LSV that rocks. The different ways I can set that thing up is sweet. devil
I like wakeboarding better because of the air, but surfing's cool to chill out after riding hard. Still working on staying in the pocket w/o the rope. I can get slack for a while, but not long enough to toss it back into the boat, yet. I'm 6,3 and 200 lbs, though. My kids will probably catch it before I do.
Slashing the lip is fun, and we're experimenting with other tricks. I still like the single ski, too. Have yet to try the skate. We'll get there, too. devil
I'll load the right rear ballast, drop wedge and have the crew sit in right rear. Haven't tried loading center ballast, too. Still working out how to shape the wakes the best. It's crazy when you cross up on the middle and the board is higher than everyone sitting in the boat. devil
