    I have a 19 mondo and can surf it no problem. I have the 750's in the back and 500lbs of lead. I a guessing its your board or where you are trying to surf. I am 6' 200lbs and like i said, no issues without a rope for as long as i want to ride.

    Try this setup, 100 ballast on surf side, 80% on non surf side and only 70% in front. Make sure your wake plate is up at 20% or less while underway and try to stay closer to the middle behind the boat not way out to the side.

    Here is my old setup:

    1) 1140s in the back(although they probably only got 900 lbs of water in them.)
    2) 500 lbs of lead on surf side.(usually under seats midship)
    3) 1000 lbs up front.(500 +500 IBS)
    4) Regular
    a. 10.8-11
    b. Everything 100% full
    5)Goofy
    a. Sped up to 11.3-11.5
    b. usually would run non surf side at 80% to list the boat more

    If I had a light crew of less than 5 people...we would take the old 650 lbs from the back and put it on the floor infront of rear seat.(That made it pop with light crew)

    I have a 19 mondo also. We often use a similar setup as Jason.

    when we run a small crew, with 3-4 people, we may load up a bit more.

    I have 500 lead that is 250 each side under bags. have 900# bags in lockers. in the bow we have the bow filler bag also. we also have a 500# bag that we put on the floor in front of the rear seat.

    we do not load everything full. but we will load the 500# bag then surf side locker will be about 60-90%. non surf side will be about 30-60%. bow will be about 70%. surf speed will be between 9.8 and 10.8. WP is usually 0-15%. I do not use the autowake, i occasionally check the pitch and roll for reference.

    i am 6'-2 and 200#. i surf a phase 5 diamond (not sure of the size, but i am a little big for it and i occasionally struggle to stay in). also a doomswell nubstep. and the go to broadcast for the days when just cruising, or carrying littles with to get them a surf experience.

    I forgot to mention two things.. Usually only my wife and 11 yr old son in the boat so a small crew, and i run at 9.6 mph and the wave is quite nice. I wouldn't say its long but i can move up and back about 6' so its not too bad. the first year i got the boat, everyone said 10.6 mph to 11.2.. that was just too fast for my boat and the wave didn't have alot of power. I slowed down to 9.6 and no just about anyone can surf my boat with a small crew.

    I am sure there are things i could be doing better to make the wave even better. I do NOT use autowake mainly because i don't know how and didn't want to read the 33 pages of posts. I go by feel and look of the wave.
