    Oh I get it. Centurion has cornered the market to floating better. Damn! Thatís a huge competitive advantage.

    Frankly I donít know how centurion is able to offer that much factory ballast. They obviously play the capacity rules differently with what they choose to equip their boats with.

    How many different boards did you get to ride - 6 to 8? If I recall, each rider gets 2 morning and 2 afternoon sets for 2 days? And 8 different boats to try.

    This thing escalated quickly! We got to ride behind 8 boats in the weekend...and I probably tried ~10 boards...as part way through the session I would swap if I wasn't digging the board. Here are some that I rode:


    1) Zombie Next Level(A few different sizes) - So fast and fun...would buy one of these for sure
    2) Soulcraft Da Honu - Was a 49" and super short...spun my first 360 on it and rode away!
    3) Soulcraft Secret Weapon - Loved this board...ordered a shorter version that I am pumped to get on in May
    4) A Zombie Hybrid...not sure the model - It was fun...but have decided the Hybrids are not really my thing...don't seem to do anything well with a bit of both worlds
    5) Soulcraft AV Inspire - Was a great board too
    6) BlueSurf - Not sure the model, and it was super choppy when riding it.
    7) LibTechAir'N - I liked this board...would consider buying one just due to the invincibility of it not getting dinged up!
    Hyperlite Varial - I couldn't seem to make this one work for me personally.
    9) Soulcraft custom build of the fella on our boat. - I was super little and fast...loved it.
    10) Victoria Captain - Just tried a Skim...personally like the surf style more!

    I donít believe itís really escalated. We are discussing how it can possibly be that 2 different 25í boats that have a 1200# weight difference whilst surfing could possible have a noticeable wave difference.

    A. It must be that the lighter of the 2 has a crappy hull and surf system that needs to be revisited.

    B. Or, maybe is it because the heavier one, well, is a lot heavier? Like 1200# worth.

    Folks have asserted A. I think itís primarily B.

    I tried surfing my foil a couple times. And I realized I had "too much ballast"!!! And also having the 30" mast wasn't great and I need to try surfing the foil with the 20" mast instead. We just don't spend a lot of time on the foil. It's usually an afterthought if we have "extra" time after ski, wakeboard, surf.

    We have a limited amount of calm water, so maybe the foil can provide some fun after the lake gets chopped up a little bit.

    It is good for that. but even the foil is affected to some degree by chop (though not in the normal way). When you're foiling, you don't want the blades to breach the surface of the water, so if there's 1 foot high chop, and you're only riding on the 2' mast, there's not a lot of room for error. That's why if I'm riding at wakeboard length it's been more fun on the 30" mast.
