I call him a friend, but only in the sense of the word that Mark Mertens (Facebook Team MasterCraft member) is a very generous guy that sells these for a good price, and has given several away on my page, and at our Buckeye Bash events. Great dude. Plus, many people on the page have used it and like it.
    Do not want to ask for too much but do you happen to have a picture of the wake/wave with one on an x14?

        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.

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

                      • 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.

                          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!

                            Is the non goofy side surfable as well? Did you raise the platform at all? What board are the bigger folks using? Thanks for the info

                              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.

                              • I lost the lens cap for light on the ZFT3 tower yesterday. It is a round dome, Where do I find a replacement ? I searched a couple of web sites with no luck.
