  • Wakesurfing behind a 1989 Tristar

    Can anyone give me an idea if we have a wake shaper , a 550 lb fatsac on the back seat and another 550 lb bag on the surf side of the engine (maybe not filled quite all the way up) if that would be enough to through a decent enough wake to let go of the rope while surfing behind? Like I said we are beginners at surfing and are really just wanting a basic surf wake that we can let go of the rope behind.

    I did it behind the same boat. Had a wake shaper, 550 lbs sack and a couple of bigger guys in the boat. It wasn't ideal imo, but it was surfable ropeless.

      What kind of wake shaper do you have?

        Not exactly sure. It came with boat. It's just one of those with 2 suction cups and a paddle at probably about 80 degrees

          Thanks wake up. Did you have 1 550 lb or 2 550 lb sacks?
          And was it just straight across the back seat?

          Thanks

            I had a 750 pumped to about 3/4 full. I had it in the corner on the floor. I used the bobv5 shaper. When the passenger walked to the back, the wake got better. So more the weight the better at the stern.

              Thanks wakeup. Do you have any tips for getting the suction cups to stick to the boat from the wakeshaper? Mine keeps wanting to pop off when we get going.

              Thanks again.

                Be sure to let the shaper set after putting on for at least 5 minutes before going. I put it on underwater, works every time.
