Any advice on creating an occasional surf wake for an 07 Malibu RLXi with wedge? We have always been course skiers but the option to lake surf on occasion without buying a new boat would be great. If anyone has found a good combination of after market surf gate and internal ballast with Bu wedge, please let me know. Thanks all and happy skiing this weekend.

If you have the locking wedge, you probably don't need much ballast. With the non-locking wedge, you need more weight. Sometimes, just having some people sit on the back seat is enough to get a curl going, especially if the weight is off center.

The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

Be careful with any of the direct drives. Leaning is a fast way to get the uphill exhaust manifold to overheat and start leaking around the (now dry) elbows, and cause future issues. Burying the rubrail on a corner adds to chance of water getting into the boat, and so on.... I have customer with a TXi that attempts this with ballast and people, and it hasn't worked out so far.....
