Here’s 11mph in the 2020 212S, no ballast except for wife and daughter. Is this surfable on a rope?

Anything is “surfable”with a rope, but you wouldn’t get any push from that unless your weigh like 90 lbs.

You’re up in Point right? How’s the water temps up that way?

I’ll have to lose 100lbs! 64f today. I’m going to jump on the wakeboard tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Wake surfing on that wave.
If you go out on that wave with a surfboard, just start pre-paying your credit card. As it's a sickness that takes only a few minutes to justify spending thousands!

Boards, Ballast, wake shaping devices, beer, they all cost money, and will be 100% justified with 15 minutes of surfing with a rope. All to just chase the dream of the ropeless surf. And in our minds, we all tell ourselves, "hey, at least I didn't spend $250K on a Mastercraft or Nautique"
