    Looks like the surfer was doing a LOT of pumping to keep up w/the boat. . . . .

    Cool features but I agree, surfer was pumping big time. Boat needs another 1,000 lbs of ballast.

    Yeah, but I wonder if 1000lbs more alone would do it. . . . . Definitely have to surf it before I'd even consider buying it.

    Lol love how they turn in a circle to artificially build up the wave. I think my 192 makes a bigger wave if I turn in a circle. Nobody wants to surf in circles. Not impressed by their SurfPointe "technology".

    You're right, surfing in a circle is not the ideal... With the minimal stock ballast it's pretty much the necessity of you want enough push to go ropeless. Even then it's barely adequate and its not pretty. However, as the rider you don't really notice that boat is turning... and any surfing is still fun. SurfPointe may clean it up a bit...?

    It takes additional ballast and a wake sculpting device (i.e. wake wedge) to generate a wake that's surfable in a straight line.

    Yamaha is being a bit deceptive about the surf-ability of their boats. If you look closely at all of their videos you can see how they use creative editing to make it look better than it is. In reality, the riders are pumping like mad to keep up and not able to do much else...
