Trim the leg up a bit, it stops the boat from planing as well and throws a bigger wake. Also, if you have trim tabs or "Bow Down", set them to keep the bow up

Ctipping,

If you trim up to much the boat starts going going crazy.

wknebraskaweber,

In all (or most of) my videos are behind my boat, a 17 ft i/o. They make the perfect wakeskating wakes, yet you can get ok air with a wakeboard.

Probably 4 people in the boat, about 1200 LBS of sacs, trim up about a 1/4-1/3. 18.5 ft. Monterey I/O.

Also a very fun thing to do is trim 'er way down so a wave comes over the bow. Mr. Green

This is our I/O wake... not the best picture, but it's all I have. There is around 1000Lbs of ballast, and 3 people. Rider is at 70 feet and 23MPH
