  1. The internet is awash with how-to's for DIY wave shapers that all more or less have the same fatal flaw......they are based on mounting bracket platform that cause a 90* angle. I tried two iterations (90* and 70*?) of my wedge with this platform unsuccessfully prior to trying a new design. Effect on the wave was awesome (regular and goofy) but the hard angle applies too much pressure to the suction cups and struggles to stay on for the length of a surf session. Riding through other boats chop really seemed to unsettle the suction cups. Pic below is my original design with standard 90* angle. No pictures of the 2nd iteration. I'll be adding photos and process of my next iteration for a <$40 wave shaper with pictures, parts, and assembly directions. Who else out there has built one and what did you do better/differently? Floating attachments? Better suction cups? Etc.?
  2. There may be a thread out there addressing this so redirect me if this horse has been beaten.... Looking for how folks have setup pre-surf system era boats to get the best wave. My boat is 21' 6'' long and 93 inches across. I have a 200 lb. built in ballast running up the middle and a 250lb tank in each V Drive locker also built into the boat. There is generally 250 lbs. of sandbags in the bow that can be thrown around as needed depending on whether we are wakeboarding or surfing. I keep 100 lbs. of lead on board at all times for small adjustments. I have a DIY surf shaper and am also trying to determine how to best use that new device. To answer the obvious question: I am open to getting more ballast in any form/shape/size. I really want to know how to most to effectively place it within the boat to maximize the wave my smaller boat can throw out. Looking for very specific setups and pics if possible...
  3. I purchased Fly High aftermarket ballast bags to go into the V-Drive lockers for my '09 Elite V C4. They were plumbed in and integrated into the controls of the boat's helm. The port side ballast bag will fill properly when the switch is flipped. When going to empty the bag, the 5 amp fuse blows immediately before the pump motor even begins running. My initial thought is to replace the Johnson pump that is currently attached. That brings up two questions: is it the ballast pump motor that is causing the fuse to blow? Why only when emptying, not filling the bag? It appears as though the style of integrated pumps that Johnson and Jabsco put out have changed from what I have and I am not entirely sure how it is supposed to plumb in. Any thoughts on the setup are appreciated. The pictures are of my existing pump (Johnson 750 GPH). The ballast bag has two tubes coming out of the top. One is the vent that allows run off to come out of the side of the boat. I am not entire sure what the other tube leads to. The pump is on the back bottom of the bag. It is pulling water in the bottom I imagine but am not entirely sure.
  4. Hey guys I upgraded end of last season from 05 supreme to 17 S226. Only was able to take it out 3 times before it was done for seson. Last season was able to get a good size wave to surf and all was good but my main concern is when the surfer falls, the wave is so massive it nearly swamps the rear of the boat. This year of course I want to use more than just 2 ballest. How do you guys get out of cruise and be clear of the wave. May be crazy and that boat my be able to take on quite a bit but I'm not rich by no means and want to protect my investment. Keep in mind 3 trips out. New to surf boats.

  9. Hello All, I'm considering an 05 Avy with switchblade. Has anyone used SB? Thoughts? Opinions? Never heard anything bad, just havent heard a big demand either. 05-06 have 2:1 trany, but trying to keep it light (3600lb lift), so 07+ is out. Single biggest concern is surf wave. Actually its #1,#2, & #3. Thx, Mike
  10. 2013 Enzo SV244 (pretty close to pristine)

    This advert is COMPLETED!

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I love this boat! I ordered it new in April 2013. Took delivery in June 2013. It has spent its entire life making people happy on Chautauqua Lake in Western NY. I keep it on a covered lift for our short summer seasons, and in my heated garage in the 8 1/2 months of winter we get here. It has never spent a night in the water - and it has never been exposed to cold temperatures (I still winterize it just in case of furnace failure, but that's never happened). 260 hours of run time on the motor. I ordered the boat the the following: PCM409 engine WakeSurf Team Package- high altitude prop, computer graphic package, pro ballast package (large ballast system under cockpit benches), P-N-P ballast system (large ballast system in aft lockers), quick fill (under-floor quick fill hard tanks), bow ballast system, Centurion Switch double surf swivel racks IceBreaker Package - heater with blower system, heated driver seat, cockpit wind dam Jazz It Up Package - stainless bling bling package, Daytona windshield, underwater led lights, docking lights Amphitheater III Sound System - includes WetSound SYN4 amp, WetSound SYN2 Amp, WetSound Rev8-C tower speakers, WetSounds AS10 500 watt sub with enclosure plus WetSounds speakers in the bow and cockpit of the boat. Upgraded Trailer Package with swing away tongue and spare tire Custom Deckadence Flooring - This has Centurion Enzo SV-244 logo (apparently this is no longer available). I also have the original snap in carpet. I ordered the Deckadence immediately after delivery - it still looks brand new, and the original carpet is pretty much new. Gladiator Tower with bimini top Why did you pick this boat: I liked a lot of the competitors boats, but the Enzo seemed to work best on Chautauqua Lake. We get decent chop here, and it seems to cut through better than Mastercraft, Nautiques and Malibu. And I really liked the dealer. How do you use the boat: Wakeboarding / surfing weekday evenings and weekend days. It makes an incredible cocktail cruiser for weekend nights. Amphiteater III sound system along with LED lighting seems to get the party started at night. Any issues with the boat: We had a couple of minor warranty issues when we first got it. The adjustable trim insert in the rudder fell out. The company replaced the rudder, and it has been great since. Boat tracks straight. We replaced the ignition switch. I have three very small spots on the upholstery (each about a quarter inch) that should be fixed with a vinyl repair kit. The Lenco trim tab actuator will be replaced. The actuator is stuck in the fully-up position (which is convenient, because we almost never put it down). I will have that taken care of before anyone takes delivery. I will also have the trailer checked out to make sure its ready for someone to drive it home. Why are you selling the boat: I recently purchased a home on the intercoastal waterway in Florida. I plan to buy a 28-32' center console set up for offshore use. This boat has been babied, and I can't bear the thought of bringing it to Florida where it would get beaten up by salt and sun. I'm hoping someone will love it as much as I have.

  11. New to the forum, decided on Supreme, unsure of the model. Love the look of these, and the build quality without all the electronic toys that are, IMO, not very useful but very expensive. Great hull, fantastic engines wrapped in quality product. Hoping some of you on here can shed some light. Moving from Four Winns I/O to Supreme. Family of four, we all waterski (I know for some of you, that is weird) but making open water cuts at 31 mph on glass like water is a rush I can't kick. However, the allure of surfing is growing and will be doing some wakeboarding. Kids ski too as does the admiral, but surfing is something we'll be doing more of as well. I'd say 70/25/5 skiing/surfing/wakeboarding. I am looking for a boat that will do all three, but skiing and surfing are the bigger priorities. The dealer is trying to get me to go from the S202 (with larger engine) which is my choice to the S211 or even S238. His premise is that I will eventually want the room. Apparently the storage on the S202 is not ideal and not big enough to handle a crowd. My counters are: 1: I actually don't want boat leaches...just close friends and family. I don't want 10 people sucking on my fuel on my dime all day. I figure 4 adults and 4 kids or me and 4-5 buddies or three couples. The dealer is saying how my kids will grow and need more space. My counter... tough luck, if they don't like my boat, than can get their own! 2: I am getting a tow boat to be behind it as well as drive it. If I have 11 people, I gotta wait my turn...might as well turn myself into a boat leach and simply bring the beverages. 3: Bigger boats make bigger wakes...and they are a mean woman to cross. 20' is the ideal length IMO for a crossover boat. 4. If the boat is full of people (say 6-7 adults), how much do the bags need to be filled, can't I use the storage in the back. The equation being more people, less PNP ballast required? I remember 25 years ago, we'd wakesurf behind a DD Malibu with bag pilled high on the transom and still pulled some tricks. How much wake is required nowadays? 5. The fun factor seems to be lost by the dealer here...I am not looking to join the waterski/surf/ wakeboard tour, just have fun with the family and some friends. What to you guys think?
  12. Has anyone tried the Mission Delta on an older Ski Centurion? I would love to hear what people think.
  13. Hello, I am selling my 99 Malibu Sunseter VLX with SV23 Wake Hull (same hull as Wakesetter till 2005) for a budget surf boat. I currently have my boat set-up with 600#'s in each rear corner, 500# in front under bow seating, and surf gates. The boat does produce a good wave that is easily surfed ropeless on a smaller board… but I want a much better wave! I need a boat that will throw a great goofy wave, be more comfortable in the chop, and more spacious. I have narrowed the search down to the Avalanche C4, an Enzo with reversed prop rotation (I have seen many of these around the same price as the Avalanche C4), and some Tige models such as the 22V, and maybe an RZ2. My budget is up to 39000. Since my wife will be driving and is comfortable driving a balanced weighted boat, I don't want to have to list the boat to extreme angles to get great results. That will freak my wife out! Have any recommendations?? Thanks guys!
  14. I have a 2015 SS210 with a 409 and am finding that there is a lot of water splash back onto the back pads of the boat when surfing. We are typically going 10.5 to 11 mph with the tab around 40 to 50. People sitting on the back seat are even getting wet. It seems like it's just the way the exhaust is hitting the plate. Anyone else seen this? Any way to correct?
  15. While I've been very happy with my custom ShredStixx board, after trying out a new Soulcraft Emily I think it's time to add a Soulcraft to the quiver. The Emily was a Twin fin but also comes as a Twinzer. After doing a bit of internet searching it would seem that a Twinzer has better hold than a Twin, but not as locked in as a full Quad. Then there's the Sixer... I know I should just get ahold of Jeff and explain what I want, but was hoping that the Crew can give me a little insight to this before taking the next step.
  16. Everyone, Will post pics this weekend. I live on a river that fluctuates between 10-15 feet where we surf. We can tell a huge difference when we hit a shallower spot. Right now, our standard setup is a 2008 Enzo with 3-4 people in the back of the boat with an enzo sac filled. I've tried adding bags on the seats but hate having ballast showing. I've read a lot about assymetrical plates but don't want to do anything that will affect the boat at all speeds as we like to wakeboard and slalom behind the boat as well. Starboard side still has stock, hard tank. Any advice for getting the wave better. It's certainly better than our 1997 MC with fat sacs but there are way too many great pictures and videos here of long waves with tons of push to not be jealous. Second question: what upgrades do you suggest: it has a tower (no speakers which I am OK with) and standard stereo system, PP, ballast puppy pump sac and extra small pumps to increase speed of emptying the ballast. The ballast takes about 10-15 minutes to fill completely. Fuel gauge is not working and the floor above the tank is screwed in (I can't believe they didn't use bolts!!!) so that is my next project to fix. I don't like the tower, takes at least 2 people and blocks the side of the boat for getting on and off at the lift. Lot's of info here but I am sure everyone can agree that as soon as you buy a boat, you want to make it absolutely perfect! Thanks in advance!
  17. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I am looking to pick up a 2003-2008 boat for under 30k. Looking at all the major brands but keep coming back to Centurion. I am finding it extremely difficult to put together all the information for the models and what they are designed for (T5, Hurricane, Avalanche, Enzo, storm package, length, etc). My ideal boat has normal wear and tear, low hours on the engine, and solid reviews from current and past owners. I will be using this for 75% surfing, 15% cruising, and 10% boarding and skating. I was lucky enough to have an '06 Air Nautique new so I am familiar with what a high quality boat should look and sound like. I realize this is a broad topic (1/3 wanted ad, 1/3 history, and 1/3 recommendations) but I don't have any way to test these boats out where I live in northern Indiana. Thank you in advance for any suggestions or information, Paul
  18. Stand Up Foil: http://vimeo.com/116406401 On a side note...........how to you embed video? I don't see the option on here and just copying the "embed" link doesn't work for me?
  19. Great video! Make me want to get in the truck and go to Powell NOW! Especially since it will probably be dry in 5 years Will the embed work? <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/BopDHDQGud8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  20. Had the boat for two months and havent been able to surf. Ramfill e shut off was down the whole time and my dealer didnt know anything about it. But , the grinn I had after surfing last night will be on my face for a while. I take back everthing ive said about this boat. By the way , my dad has been getting plenty of fat jokes about this picture. It was freakin awsome
  21. Ok. Got my new sv233. Wish I would not have got the ramfill, but its to late for that. Love the boat. Seems I need about 500#s more weight for a good surf (would have had that if I didnt get ramfill) the dealer and the rep pushed it so hard I guess I fell in. What is the biggest bag I can fit in my rear lockers over the ramfill. My dealer says a 450 will fit, but my boat is the first ram he has sold and he really doesnt seem to know alot about these boats. I think I can go bigger. Does anyone know. We are dying to get it dialed in.
  22. I'll cover all cost for the trade ? tranny , vdrive and prop✌️I'll cover shipping Let's do it
  23. Soulcraft!

    Just bought two Soulcraft boards! One for me and one for the wife...SUPER stoked! MrN
  24. Hi all, I just bought an 05 Avalanche C4 Storm series with built in hard sacks for port, starbort, and center. I NEED MORE WEIGHT!! So I was thinking of getting an Enzo Sac for the port side (dont care about the dark side really), and plumbing it into the existing hard sac lines for the port side. What do you think? There is currently a piece of wood screwed in between the rear compartment and the seat, has anybody had problems removing this? In addition I have a Side Swipe exhaust and am worried about the exhaust getting too hot and possibly melting the bag. Should I be worried, is it a problem, should i just build a box around it to protect the sac? What do you think of using the existing pumps, is it really worth it to upgrade price vs. time? Below is a pic of my current setup, 3 sacs around 400# plus 5 people in boat, im really looking to be able to surf with just a spotter and a driver. Thanks, Mark
