    About the only other option is try no weighting and use your suck gate. Like everyone else, if I'm behind my boat and the driver gets in some shallow water, the wave instantly goes away.

    I was told the same about the bow sack for my x30.

    I run 3500 pounds in my x2 in 10 ft of water for a nice wave. When the water level drops below 7ft I drop too.

    We have a lake that is shallow. 85% of it is 4-6 feet deep. One stretch is 7-11 feet. We can surf the biggest and smallest waves on all different boats on the one deep stretch. On every single boat, every single wave, every single speed, we can't keep up with the wave shallower than the 7 foot range. You need a super fast surf board with no drag, a rider that has all their weight on the front foot, and work your *** off to surf a wave in water that shallow. It's not all that enjoyable.

    empty the KGB when in shallow water, your speed should be ~10mph then when at speed start adding water to KGB to clean up surf wake

    I have the same hull as well, and for sure once you get less than 12ft there's really nothing you can do about it

    I agree with the others on depth. I have the same hull and anything under 10 really loses the push. My home lake I surf in a spot that is 20-50ft. When I go with friends on their lake I can see the difference in loss of push they average 8-12ft. Still surfable but when if your driver isn’t paying attention and takes you below 6ft its pointless.

    Im sure the size and length of the boat helps, but no matter what you do, the surf wake will always be subpar.

    The early year tige hulls surfed really well, but I don't see how yall are adding a lot of weight and not hitting the bottom of the lake. All the new wake shaping devices will be affected by depth. With my X23, anything below 12ft deep makes the wave suffer dramatically.

    As others said, water depth is a issue. Our lake is 6-9 ft, and push completely disappears when we hit a 6-7ft spot.

    I have the same boat as yours and almost the same setup -- I also have the bow sac and a wakeplate.
    Even without the wakeplate down though we can surf endlessly on the port side and are working on 360's. (Starboard is possible with more listing to that side.) We use a CWB Ride and a Ronix Koal Powertail.

    And yes, anything under 10' depth kills the wake.

    Yeah you’ll have next to no luck in that shallow of water.

    Water depth is certainly a killer in this scenario, and I can't get any push under 12 feet on either of my last two boats.
