How do you get more push on wake surf?

To get more push while wake surfing, the boat needs to be sufficiently weighted with ballasts correctly distributed front and rear. The boat should be cruising at low speed. The wake plate and wake shapers need to be optimally set up. The wake surfer must also be correctly positioned in the pocket.

  4. Invite more friends.
  5. Ride at the correct speed.
  6. Find the right rope length.

Is go surf assist worth it?

For my opinion the go surf assist is the best “aftermarket” surf system. Its really expensive but.. if you think you’ll need it go for it, it totally change the ride. My cousin had a 2006 moomba and put some suction surf system and seriously it was kind of a mess. It does the job, yes.

What speed should you Wakesurf at?

Boat speed for wakesurfing will vary with the make and model of boat, and the amount of ballast, but usually good waves form around 10 mph and professional surfers will cap out around 12.5. Skim-style boards perform best at about 1.5 mph slower than surf-style boards.

What speed should you wakeboard at?

Tow Speed For Wakeboarding

The proper speed to tow a wakeboarder is usually between 15 and 25 mph. The bottom line when it comes to speed is that the faster you go, the cleaner and more firm the wake gets, making it easier and more consistent for riders trying to jump or learn new tricks.

How does speed affect Wakesurfing?

Slower speeds will create a shorter, steeper wake face. Faster speeds will elongate the wave, but may take away from its overall wake height. As you adjust ballast and wake setups, vary the speed a bit to determine what works best.
