Wondering if anyone else has used a surf gate on a FS33 or FS44? I used the SWELL wakesurf creator earlier this week on my 2015 FS33 and was actually very impressed with it. I spent a lot of time (over 100 hours) messing with my wave last season and had it pretty dialed in (listed) by the end. I tried using QS but wasn't happy with it unless extremely loaded but it still was no comparison to a listed wave. The guy that started Swell is a local Mn guy that is a friend of a friend. Last summer he heard I got a 33 and asked if I would be interested I trying out the SWELL. I actually chuckled and thought there is no way I'm suction cupping that thing to the side of my brand new boat. Well I gave it a try, and surprisingly it made a really good wave. I need to do some more testing (I actually ordered one on amazon after we got done because he Didn't have any on hand besides his demo). He ended up taking a bunch of pix. I will see if I can post something.
The weather has been terrible lately in Mn, combined w work I haven't been out much. Did get a chance to play around with the swell once. One thing we did try was surfing shallower water. Normally I like 15' or deeper water because when I hit 12' or less I can see the wave gets noticeably smaller. We surfed 10-12' and I didn't notice much of a difference in the wave size. Guessin it's because of the side push of the swell and the lateral displacement instead of relying on the deep V vertical displacement? I do like that because the bay we park in up north isn't very deep so we normally drive across the lake to surf. As far as push, it had enough push to surf myself (6'2" 220lbs and my buddy, 6'2" 250lbs). Lol
