Never mind. Found it on Google. If you read the thread “Photos of Erosion and other ills” in General Discussions you will probably think it will be used as fire wood! Good luck

It always amazes me how flat out negative and miserable people are on this forum. Hope you’re able to still have fun without it while everyone else complains!

A surf wedge is a wedge usually suction cupped to the rear side of an inboard boat that delays the convergence of the wake to form a surfable wave. It reduces the need for ballast weight and it’s found usually on older boats that don’t come with the new fancy surf tabs and tech. They surprisingly work well.

I wonder how that would work at about 5-10 mph, for moving along someone standing up, balanced on a stand up paddle board, in front of the moving wake?

Could be good for us outta shape senior citizens who are too fragile for wake boarding ....... but tough enough for a slow-poke sup?

Also, since there's no tow rope in use, doesn't that mean the boat just needs a driver without a spotter?

Do wake-surf shapers really work? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ok9ocalx6ak time 5:06

.....seems a little crazy .....could be a good way to get sliced and diced by the boat propeller?

How to get a great wake surf wave? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tl1kzbgmW74 time 6:41


How to build and attach a wave gate using suction grips? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qpr8FVSQCas time 6:12

Complaining about complainers?

I had to look it up too. Here's a one-minute video:

Nobody found my customized shorty paddle, either. (Lost near Tuftonboro Neck and Libby Museum).

Hope you have better luck.
