Reigning Queen
Ashley Kidd has ­dominated ­women’s wakesurfing in ­recent years. She is ­currently the three-time reigning world champ in the Surf division.

How I Utilize Standard Ballast
I fill up Ramfill 100 percent on the regular side and 40 percent on the goofy side. I fill both plug-and-play bags in the rear lockers. With this weight plus the CATS and Quicksurf, the wave is big, has a good shape and a bunch of push!

How I Utilize Extra Ballast
Sometimes I will add a couple of 50-pound Lead Wake bags in the back corner of the regular side of the boat.

Custom Settings
I turn CATS all the way to the side I am riding on, but if I feel like changing up the shape of my wave that day, I will move them over towards the goofy side a bit. I keep my Quicksurf settings on 70 ­percent on the regular side and 0 percent on the goofy side.

Boat Speed
10.6 to 10.8 mph
