Hey guys sorry if this has been answered before but couldn't find anything. Does a dedicated wakesurf board make it easier to stay on the wave and let go of the rope. I no doubt need to add extra ballast but last time we tried it was with a regular foamie type surfboard 7' and didn't feel the push to let go of rope. Boat is a center mount Nemesis with approx 1000kg ballast. Thank for your thoughts
i have a centre mount tige 20i-can let go of the rope ride with no ballast but i am trying to stay on the wave-that was on a 6ft surfboard.on my wakesurf board with about 2ookgs can ride with no rope-wave is not that good but if ur a good surfer its ok. im going to load up the boat soon as have been reading how to make a good wave-ballast at the back gives u the hight of wave,ballast up front gives u lengh of wave pocket.i think if u can surf its easy if u don't surf it could b a little harder to wakesurf.
Sorry should have added ballast was only about 300 kg when we tried
Just started surfing behind the SN2001. Using a 6 1 surfboard. Keen to get a proper wakesurfer as the wave is to small and board to big to do any tricks on.
The boat will usually make a wave better on one side than the other, usually the side that the prop spins at.
Running 150l at the back, a 250 either side of engine, 3 or 4 people down the starboard including driver, observer on port. Water just runs over the back corner of the deck and the gunnel is under the water. Am keen to try a little more weight up front as the pocket is fairly close to the back of the boat. Sitting at about 24-2500rpm. No idea what speed thats at, but can let go of rope no problem. Had a few newbies riding without the rope in a day.
