I had the opportunity to surf the wave behind this boat and, while it has a smaller sweet spot and doesn’t generate the same push as waves from a dedicated surf boat, it is rideable. The key, beyond the Forward Drive, is the added weight. With the surf package, Starcraft installs three ballast bags that fill with water to add as much as 1,385 pounds to the boat. Surf-oriented trim tabs form and shape the wake to the surfer’s desired side. Zero Off speed control, located on the dash, keeps the boat locked in at a constant preset surf speed.
