    I have not searched for a little while. The only one I ever found was from a Chinese web site and I never got it, and had to have the credit card company get my money back.

    Let us know if you find something.

    We surf both sides, same set-up. Haven’t modified the platform, but have considered raising or trimming the corners to clean it up, but can’t make myself do it.

    We use a older Ronix Marshmallow, actually have two, 4’6” & 5’2” I think. The larger one is used for big guys and adult/teen beginners.

    also have a couple skim boards but you gotta be pretty good to keep them going.

    here is where we attach our shaper. We have better push here than behind bullseye, but do take some spray in the boat sometimes. 1st Pic is in driveway tonight, wake an son surfing is from earlier today with same location. Factory ballast all full, 600 bag behind motor box, 450 in walkway. 4 in boat for pic, 3 while surfing, driver and other two in back corner. Better with a couple more bodies. Obviously not as big as wake specific boats, but we also were able to run the course earlier in the morning before adding all the weight.

    I would love to have an x24 to surf and a prostar to ski, but that’s not in the budget, so we make this work!

    I used the exact same lights and they are fantastic! WAY brighter then the halogens. Only a little bit of tweaking to mount them to the plate but nothing basic tools can’t handle. They fit with only a tiny gap between them and the housing. And recessed perfectly. Hardest part is pulling the speaker out to get to them. They take an odd Allen wrench size for the speaker housing bolts. A couple hours of work and you’ll be pulling more bugs out of your teeth then you could imagine.

    Pull the old lamp, separate from the plate, flip the plate 180, drill a couple holes, mount and install.

    Picked up the LF Wakesurf edge this year. Had been using a home made one for years (got plans here on TT), and it finally broke. Wife and adult kids could surf all day, but my 200lbs couldn’t never get enough push. Now I can with the edge. We found the most push by mounting just behind the “x series” plate forward of the bullseye.
