    I told the ACME rep I primarily surf and run around 5,600lbs of ballast, the 2937 was the recommendation even though Wakemakers prop-finder suggested the 2419 15 X 12.

    We may not have high altitude but the rep reminded me our hot humid air is a heat soak for the Raptor.

    I'm guessing I'll top out around 27-28mph but I don't really care about that.

    My crew tends to run on the small side so we sack it out.

    I hope to do some water testing this weekend

    Nice man!! I am jealous about this weekend. The weather looks great!! You will have to report back with some RPMs at surf speed and top speed. It will be interesting to hear how it does.

    I have the OJ 945 and it’s been great. I only run 4200 lbs, but plan to add 400-600 of lead and a 400lb sac at some point. My crew is only about 3-6 people. I’m
    New to owning this type of boat. How are you not getting swamped with eaves over the bow with all that ballast. I’ve already taken a few over the bow, albeit I’m new and still learning. Our lake is always fairly busy and we haven’t found much glass yet, so when we surf it’s usually rough conditions. I’d be interested in getting some more low end torque. Eager to see how the new prop works.

    Often it has to do with the direction you're turning. I've seen many people do this, did this myself at first when I was learning. When your rider falls and you turn to pick him/her up, first just wait a few secs an let the waves pass by, but, if in a hurry, make sure turn towards the non-surf side. If you turn toward surf side is when you get the huge surf waves over the bow. You may already know this but I thought I'd throw that out since I see so many people make that mistake. My wife still does it every once in a while.

    This is super easy...just slow your roll.

    The moment I see the rider go down, I back off the throttle in a slow linear fashion and let the wave pass me. Then I'm free and clear to return to the rider without catching a roller over the bow.

    This is a visual of how to do it right, like the others said, throttle down, let wave pass you then slowly return to rider. Power turns are bad for everyone.
