We recommend practicing installing and removing the SWELL Wakesurf Creator while the boat is out of the water to get familiar with overall functionality and usage. This will help you find the installation sweet spot on the hull of the boat. We recommend a location as close to the stern of the boat on a fully summered flat and smooth surface.

  • Fill your ballast evenly, there is no need to list your boat to the side when using the SWELL Wakesurf Creator. Start with a 60/40 rear/front split of ballast for a V-Drive boat. More weight in the front makes the wave longer, more weight in the rear makes the wave larger and shorter. For a direct drive boat we recommend starting with 600lbs only in the rear.
  • This device does float. You don’t have to worry about dropping it, it flying around while tethered, or a buddy too many beers deep dropping it in the lake! We do include a tether if you want to use it or are worried about it floating away on water with current.
  • Locate a flat surface 3-4” below the water line free of raised decals as close to the back of the hull as you can. Press the unit firmly against the boat and lock the suction levers. There should be a decent amount of tension on these levers for a good connection.
  • A speed between 10-13mph works best for most boats, please do not exceed 14mph. Practice driving and turning your first time to get used to a bit of steering change with the device on the boat.
