Wakesurfin nautique style

Postby braddo » Fri Jan 06, 2006 11:09 am

Ok i have a direct drive nautique with a 250 sack in the rear locker and a 250 sack in the center locker and x2 spare sacks for the floor. Do all nautiques spin the props the opposite direction or just the v drives i want to be able to let go of the rope while surfing where should i put the spare sacks for the best wake, or am i wasting my time.

Cheers Brad

Braddo .. You might have to play around with the weight alittle but
a good start would be fill the centre ballast, the rear ballast, and then
fill one bag down the side of the motor that you want to surf. From that
you can just position people in different places to toy around with it.

If you can put a little up the front as well to push the wave back abit it
might help.

You're boat is definately capable of kicking up an awesome wave!!

Hope this helps, let us know how you go and get some pics!! :D

id say check which way your prop spins and would think that the down rotational direction that the prop spins should be the side you load......
i will be corrected if wrong.

I use to have an air, it was great for boat surfin, load up the rear locker, the underfloor, 250 on the drivers side, and a 150 in the nose and get everyone to sit on the drivers side and you should be sweet

Put your boat in reverse, whichever way it pulls load that side up.

we loaded the nemesis the other day for a surf and the wave was good, only problem is all girls are goofy all blokes normal,(go figure), but we managed to get a good clean wave both sides. might be worth a try.

Hey Braddo,

Have you got an old school super sport hull (pretty much same as current 210 hull) or a 206 hull.

You can get a decent surfing wake out of a 206 as well.

Thats our 210 in the picture at the top.

Its not all about weight in the back corner. You need weight forward as well, otherwise you end up with a very short section to ride on.

Post a pic if you can of how you get on.

I think you mean load the opposite side up to the way it pulls. Had Justin Abbott and Mick Watkins show us what to do with our SAN210. The boat pulls to the left in reverse (Prop spins opposite way to others.), but you load up the right hand side and surf on the right. Like the picture further up. Most other boats you'd load up and ride on the left cause the prop spins the other way.
See you on the switch side and don't drink and drive, catch a Half-Cab

Sambos right. You load the side which is the same as the propellor hand. Most nautiques use a RH prop, whereas virtually everything else runs a LH prop.
And my old schooler definately pulls to the left in reverse & has a RH pitched prop.

Don't underestimate the importance of the dude in the front, He's the only thing stopping the whole show being sucked under by it's own wake :lol:

Im going to try someone in the bowrider next time as its true about being sucked under, water nearly flows over the back corner of my boat. Is there a way to make the wake form up further back as mine is reasonably close to the platform

Braddo - try more weight in the front - should make the wave longer - we have found with our boat that with too much ballast the wake won't form up until you are going 14mph or so - We had this issue at somerset with 1100kg and 7 people in the and I couldn't stay on the wave as we were going too fast to get the wake to clean up

I will give it a go next time. Im a bit worried about sinking with that much weight on one side, should i move the weight i already have or just add more to the front, mine was forming up at about 10-11 mph

If you're worried about sinking dont add more weight :lol: Try redistributing some of what you have forward and see what difference it makes to the wake

Wouldn't say its at its best thats for sure, nothing unmanageable though. Biggest thing that starts to annoy me after a while is the whole show sitting on a weird angle :lol:
