Looking for advice on getting the best wakeboarding wake.

I like steep, hard wake as far as shape goes.


Current Setup:

2004 Avalanche C4 (350 Mag)

Dual 800# sacs in the rear

Stock center tank 250#

About 400-500# in the bow

911 prop

Running 23.7 MPH


Wake is pretty good but I'm wondering if any changes would make it better. Specifically, do I have too much in the bow? I've heard Avys don't need much bow weight. Should I add more in the rear? Or would adding a sac on top of the floor over the center tank help to make the wake more firm?


Any help is much appreciated.

I do more surfing than wake boarding behind my Avy. I would like to see some pics/videos of your wake. When I do wake board I fill the inner center ballast and wake plate 100% down and run about 18mph with the rope as short as it will go. I'm afraid any more hardcore than that, if/when I fall this old body my not recover. I alway have on side of the wake whitewatery and the other clean.

Here is my recipe for success on the old elite V. 1) More weight 2)More speed


Best wake I have thrown so far was about 2500 pounds total at 27mph. Both sides were hard as a rock with no lip rolling over, no wash nothing


*If you like steep I would drop a few hundred from the bow and see what it does at around 24-24.5

      Sad this forum is not as busy as it used to be since so many jumped to the Facebook groups .. the FB groups are not nearly as easy to search, and the threads do not get organized well ...
