Bow ballast is often forgotten about but equally important as ballast in other zones of the boat for creating a satisfactory wake. A balanced distribution of ballast throughout all zones of the boat creates a cleaner shaped wake that makes for better takeoffs and landings wakeboarding. In wakesurfing, more bow weight typically helps to lengthen out the wake, creating a bigger “sweet spot” or “pocket” where the rider can surf without the rope.
For the best results, our team of ballast experts recommend that you add weight to the back of your MasterCraft as well for a balanced distribution of weight.
