Brian Grubb has more wakeskate titles and awards than we could ever list, but he has also become a versatile and talented wakesurfer.
How I Utilize Standard Ballast
I fill all four of the hard ballast tanks full.
How I Utilize Extra Ballast
I also use two 750-pound plug-and-play bags in the stern lockers and have 1,500 pounds in lead weight under the seats throughout the boat.
I ride with the Surf Gate engaged and the Wedge on 3. I also wear my Surf Band so I can control the boat speed and Wedge adjustments, and initiate transfers while I’m surfing.
I usually ride at 11 mph.
I Usually Surf
I like to surf frontside and backside. With Surf Gate and the Surf Band, it is easy to transfer back and forth on the fly.
I ride lots of different boards behind the boat, but my go-to board is the Hyperlite Shim. It’s great for skim- and surf-style riding.
My Favorite Single Feature On My Boat Is
The best thing about my 25 LSV is how spacious the interior is and how big the wave is. I can take all my friends and their friends on the boat to surf, and still have plenty of room on board!
