Beautiful RIde! Congrats on the kid Surfing! A surfboard is on my Christmas list!
How are you weighting your boat for surfing? The guy i bought my 06 LSV replaced factory rear sacs with 750lb's and he said he filled up one side completely with no center ballast.. curious as to how you do yours..

Thank, I am really enjoying the boat!
Same here I put two 750's in the back but only fill one of them up, I fill the front also. Wake plate around 75-80% up and then throw a couple of my friends on the side were surfing on. speed seems to change whith how many friends in the boat, 9-11 mph

Normally I think I would not care for yellow, but this looks pretty cool.

I have always dreamed of skiing on Powell. How hard is it to find good water? And how hard is it to find fuel?

How many months can you ski?

We went about 4.5 hours by houseboat up from bullfrog, Good hope bay, Its about 45 minutes in the ski boat though(30 mph). I started with full fuel and took 42 gal with me, straped 5 cans on the swim platform and two on the floor board. played all week. A little sight seeing. When you get past about 20 miles from the marina I have not had much trouble finding a good place to ski in the last 10 years. Occasional a cruiser will come through. Next to the marinas are pretty crazy always. Our friends took there house boat and there were two other boats whos fuel cans were there also. Marina fuel was 3.95 a gal so more than paid for the fuel cans. The guys with the house boat have skied at thanksgiving there with a wet suit and as early as late april. Water was 82 air temp was 90-92 with nights in the upper 60's. Cases of rum disaper, and a Corona hits bottom fast. I think the only thing that disapears faster is 7 short days on the lake. The fishermen of the trip brought home 80 some stripers and a few bass! Fun was had by all .... excelent trip all but the last day........ Very hard leaving to go back to work.

Great pics - beautiful boat! That's excellent getting your kids up! I'm still working on my 10 year old. I don't like the tubes either but they're necessary to keep the clan happy. My wife bought a new one this year for the kids; it's like pulling a Bayliner!

Nice boat. I wish the water was that smooth out here in Las Vegas. At times, it like driving in the ocean

Tazz3069 When dose the water and air warm up so you can play looking for a warm place to pull the boats to in the early spring for some playing?
