Looking for surf setup advice on my 07 Avalanche C4 w/ Sideswipe

Recommended Posts

The boat is currently configured to be listed only to the port side for surfing.  It has a huge custom bag on the port side that fills the rear locker and runs up under the seats.  I don't know how much water weight it holds but I'm guessing well over 1000#.  The starboard side has a custom bag (I'm guessing 720#) that only fills the locker.  I'm not a huge fan of listing boats to surf them.

I'm planning to put Infinity Wave tabs on this boat and evenly weight it.  So I'm thinking of getting another 720# for port side and see what kind of wave I get on #1500# plus the center hard tank (another 225#).  I'm not really looking for a monster wave per se.  I just want one with a nice relatively long pocket, good push, and a clean face.  I ride goofy btw.  

I'm just wondering if anyone here has experience with this setup and/or this boat and give me some pointers.

Thanks for any advice.

PS: I've owned an 07 Elite C4 with 750#'s in the lockers and 225# hard tank with a suck-gate and it produced a really nice regular wave, however, the goofy wave had a narrow pocket and a dirty face. Hoping to build a much better wave with the Avalanche.

Infinity surf tabs are da bomb.

You may need an A-plate to clean up the goofy side (Infinity can build/sell you an A-plate or double wing plate)...but also having some list helps clean up the wave face whether you are running suckgate or surf tabs. Not talking a full on list, just couple hundred difference which can be done using people sitting on surf side, lead biased to that side, etc. On my Enzo, I use my Ramfill to list approx 250lbs on reg side and more like 400lbs on goofy side due to prop rotation.

      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 ...
