    That's not the wave I would have expected from being so bow high. I expected a very short, steeper wave with a curl. Usually this is the case with low bow weight so the fix is to add bow weight and/or increase your speed.

    Have you physically checked the rear bags to make sure they are 100% full? Seems to me the rear of the boat isn't sunk enough. Adding bow weight to that 26% plate wave will likely flatten it out even more. Not what you want. Timers should be adjusted so they just start to puke water out the vents before they shut off. You may also want to verify that your pitch reading is 0* in calm water just floating. Maybe you're not as bow high as you think you are.

    I agree with Unstuck....Check the accuracy of your inclinometer first and make sure it is good. The next thing I would do is fill everything 100% and then physically verify that everything is full and has no trapped air. Then you can use your lead to get your pitch # correct. Once you achieve your Pitch and Roll I believe you will still need to add more weight. DISPLACEMENT is what you will need to achieve a wave like Wake 9s. In their video they have 5 adults in the boat in addition to the lead.

    Just skimming through I didnt see it mentioned but my wake looks like that if the side surf tab is set too low. Definetely move center smart plate between 0 to 25 but also make sure your surf tab is the highest up possible that gives you the wake you want. With the surf tab too far down there won't be any lip or push. At least that is the experience I have had with my boat. Start at like 60 which it may look really washy and then got to 65 then 70 and all the way until you get a nice lip.

    Are you relying on the boat inclinometer or a phone app?

    Download the clinometer app and verify that your in-boat readings are correct. You will be chasing ghosts without verifying first... my boat was horribly inaccurate from the factory.

    As everyone said, way too much center plate. Start at 25% which is the stock setting and then give that a ride. I wouldn't expect you would need to add more plate with the additional 500lbs sitting up front.

    I was wondering the same about the Autowake calibration.

    One of the reasons I don't have my boat yet, was that the dealer said they wanted to hang onto it until they could "lake test" it to calibrate the timers for the ballast bags/pumps and the Autowake settings.

    Maybe, your dealer didn't set it up correctly???

    As others said, check the boat settings against the Clinometer app, which might show you have improper zero settings, then recalibrate as necessary.

    Experience from my last boat also told me that if your fulcrum point is too far forward, you canít put enough weight in the bow to change pitch significantly.

    What I mean by this is that if the rear bags are full enough, the pitch wonít change much, just the amplitude. Autowake needs capacity to adjust ballast, hence the reason for lead.

    I would move your PnP bag to the center of the cabin near the natural CG at zero ballast. Then fill to 100% amplitude checking to make sure all air is purged from all bags. Then try adjusting rear and front ballast to achieve optimum pitch and play with the numbers. Once you achieve good pitch then adjust for roll, and smart plate.

    Donít forget the roll speed plays. Your initial posts you said your speed was 10.5-12. Try using the speed a little and fight the urge to at smart plate when you want to lengthen the wave.

    The boat just got there when I bought it. They didnít even get to water test it they said. They have it now because I keep getting a high voltage code and ugo pump slow codes. So I was going to get them to check it all out

    Hi Matt. There is a lot of really good advice on this thread. Weight, properly placed will turn your boat into a surf beast. But keep in mind that the members on this forum that have a great wave didn’t have that wave out of the box. Lots of experimentation and following the good advice of the good folks on here got them there. Also, most people aren’t riding wireless right away or for very long if they are new to surfing. It does take a while to develop the skill and subtle nuances required to stay on the wave. Take a deep breath, relax and just have fun out there. Every time you get out on the boat is infinitely better than your best day at work. Have fun and learn a little bit bit every time you get on your wakesurfer and you’ll be riding wireless before you know it. Cheers
