    Between 20 and 25 feet. This was around 5500 lbs ballast, about 500 lbs of people (3) in the boat. My kids and wife can go a bit farther back. I’m still a fairly green rider and weigh 275. Although last year I was 380+ and it was a lot more difficult.

    That’s awesome!! I was tipping the scale at 240 earlier this year and started a fit body boot camp a few months ago. I want to get down to 200 or under so I can have more room to play and stop using my “big boy” surf board.

    Rush- Did I read this correctly? You are running 7000lbs ballast? How do you even get that thing to move? Can you get it over 10mph?

    Also, I am finding that more weight does not mean a bigger wave. I am not sure where the point of diminishing return is. but still working on it slowly.

    Yes, itíll do 12mph fully loaded. Pictures above were around 5500 lbs. I agree, more isnít necessarily better. I used old bags I had from other boats. Thatís why thereís so much in it. Iím able to run a much lower pitch and really lengthen the wave. We run around 7.5 now

    I was running 6500 in ballast last night as we put a 900 between the Helm. We also had 9 in the boat plus a couple of littles. The wave was PHA-KEN SAVAGE! Had to be 4.5 tall. However there wasn't much push farther back which is the demon I have been chasing.
