First day surfing the new SV233 Enzo!

Recommended Posts

ReSession    169

Went out this weekend for the first surf session...Saturday it was super windy and wavy and only had 3 guys total and left my 400 lbs of lead weight on the dock because I wanted to see what it could do right out of the box? It was a nice wave and I was really impressed with the goofy wave too...rode both sides, everything seemed to fill up in about 5 minutes and super easy to switch over to the other side!

 

After filling up the rear port PNP sac (750 lbs), I realized there's more room at the top of the compartment that will likely allow me to add another 150-200 lbs with the 1100 sac that I originally was going to go with. I am also going to get some foam and make some square templates around my rear cup holders and attach them from under the compartment as I could see they will want to pop out with the pressure of the sac against them.

 

The new system that keeps the divider boards in place works very nicely...they added some reinforcement bars but there are also 3 'hooks' that basically fit in right where the engine housing lowers down...once they're in place in the channel, the dividers are never going to pop out/into the engine compartment.

 

We were going around 11-11.2 and had the CATS at 50%...didn't want to mess with that yet, figured I'd get the weighting down first along with trim tab settings, then start adjusting from there. We rode anywhere from 0-100% trim tab...I liked it more in the 50-70% range. We had 2 ladies in the bow (totaling maybe 230 lbs) and 4 others lounging around in the back...driver and starboard passenger, then 2 port side passengers. I filled up both Quickfills (port and starboard) and then filled up the Port Pro and Port Plug-n-Play. I also brought out 200 of my 400 lbs of lead weight and laid them in the compartment under the Pro ballast sac. I will be adding the 200 lbs additional under the Plug-n-Play sac this afternoon when we go out and see how that does?

 

It's gonna take a little more dialing in, but I'm very happy with my wave and like knowing it's only going to get better! Here's a few pics and quick vid from Sunday.

So I have to ask how does the wave compare to the old 226?? It for sure looks smaller than your last wave .Do you think that with more weight it will equal what you got from the 226??

They waves aren't that different but this one (so far) is a bit shorter...I actually felt like it was bigger (taller) at some points yesterday depending on where we had it trimmed and I haven't touched the bow sac yet and will play around with that this evening and try to get some more vids/pics for comparison. The pocket seems deeper and I've noticed I can do bigger carves out further down in the wave. I remember I was a little bummed out with the stock wave when I just filled up all the V226 sacs until I added the 400 lbs of lead. Jumping from 3 people to 7 yesterday was a wave changer for sure! I still need to play with the trim and of course CATS for some fine-tuning, probably have 4-5 guys out today and will toss all the lead under the rear plug-n-play and pro ballast and see where that gets me?

Sweet cant wait to see what you get once you have it dialed in . Was just courious my experience is the waves are similar . Just wanted your take on it .

Thanks for the write up resession. Glad to hear you are enjoying the new boat. Looking forward to hearing and seeing the different set ups that you try. I'm the meantime the wave looks great. We are planning to add some steel ballast (300 Pnp and 150 port) to see what that does. For some reason we couldn't seem to keep up with the wave past 10.8.

Very interesting. Our port PNP gets so full we have trouble closing the locker door. I wish I could get a couple of extra hundred pounds in there.

Ya, my factory pnp sacs did not fill the locker by a long shot as well (SV244). The sacs measure 16" tall (seam to seam) and the locker is 24" deep.

 

I put an 1100 in mine and it fills up nicely but I noticed it would fill the gap at the bottom between the hard tank and the locker divider channel. I was worried that this would stress the channel at the bottom as the sac expanded so I ripped a 2x4 at an angle and filled the gap up. Works perfectly.

Thanks for sharing Greg. Looks like you'll have it dialled in in no time!

Boat looks great on the water too BTW.

Thanks guys, last night was awesome! 6 people total, and 2 guys that have never surfed before...everyone went wireless!

 

The one thing I am definitely noticing is the difference on how 'fat' the wave is...it's much thicker at the top than the V226 wave and now that I'm getting more used to it, I found myself getting the biggest airs I have ever hit last night (of course no one pulled out the GoPro for captain in time for those!). I actually would find myself getting off-axis and had to find my footing/balance on my landings. This is a good problem in my mind! And as I mentioned before, doing bigger S-carves out into the flats gives me the ability to hit the wave a little more squarely for the extra pop/air off the lip.

 

We played with CATS a little bit and you could definitely tell it would clean up the wave but again we kept it pretty much center while we played more with the trim tab and bow ballast. I honestly couldn't tell that much difference with the bow bag filled, other than less bow clearance (I went about 65% on it) and we added all 400 lbs of lead weight distributed under the port plug-n-play (200 lbs) and the port pro (200 lbs). My new 1100 lb sacs should be here in a few days since my dealer still had them in-stock, and I'll likely see another 150-200 lbs that can fill up there! As Dreamer mentioned, the 750's are only 16" tall and the locker is closer to 24" tall...fill 'er up I say!

 

So far, the only drawbacks of the SV233 vs the Supreme V226 are:
1) Bow size and freeboard when filled...my buddy took a little water over the bow the first time he turned my boat around...he didn't know the best method to letting the wave pass. Didn't have to worry about that with the freeboard of the V226 ever!

2) storage space under the port passenger compartment (can't stuff my boards in there and had no problem squeezing 3-4 full size boards

3) initial wave length...but I think we're going to get that dialed in very soon! Just need to start saving rider profiles and adjusting from there. There's no doubt the Enzo wave is bigger/more push/more water volume.

 

We'll keep playing, you'll hear (and see) more from me very soon...headed out after work again, day 18 on the lake and day 8 wakesurfing...goal is to be on the lake +60 days this summer!

 

Here's a vid from last night (click 720 for best quality) and you'll see the wave 'thickness' that I'm talking about...also highlighted in the attached pic.

Great looking wave. Didn't realize the lack of freeboard on the enzo.

Yeah, they addressed that issue with the uber surf boat, the FX44!

ReSession,

Lots of time has passed since this post and I thought I would bring it back to life being I'll be in a 2014 sv233 in June 2017.

Please enlighten me on the weight and what you finalized with once dialed in. I'm not 100% on the ballast system of this boat and want to prepare. 

Thx.

Right on! I just got my boat in yesterday- I'll take a look at my settings this weekend and let you know? 

Keep in mind I have CATS but went without Ramfill because I wanted max surf weight in each compartment (plus I've added 500 lbs of lead).

You just can't get a good surf wave on an Enzo without slapping a suckgate on it.

 

That is a joke people.

 

Wave is LEGIT!

 

More weight the better, get that carbon fiber vent touching the water

Rhunt....congrats on the new ride!!!   Our set up is both quick fills full, port pro full, port plug and play full, extra 400 lbs or so on port side...lead or bag.   As Nate says get that carbon fiber vent touching the water.....wave will be epic!!!   I have lots of pics of our wave on this site.

The boat I'll be picking up at the beginning of June is a 2014 sv233 with cats, no ramfill.
