    Did they think we wouldn't notice that the stern drive was trimmed way up when comparing bow rise? Bow rise is the same, throttle control is the same and you obviously don't have the boat running and in gear when you got someone in the water off the stern. V drives have one advantage, their wake is more suited for water sports. You decide if it's worth the extra 50k

    I wakeboard behind a ski boat. I may cheat a little because it has ballast and I'm still more of a skier.

    We got a 08 centurion T5 for under $20k used in immaculate condition. You just gotta do your research

    Biased!
    I'd take a stern drive with a fin and surf wedge over a v drive for the following reasons:
    -Late 90's and newer stern drives have extended planes and decks that cover the out drive
    -Stern drives sit about 15" lower in the water than a v – drive prop
    -Stern drives act as a power wedge when slightly trimmed up – this pushes the boat lower into the water, displacing more surf wake while also rolling a larger wave behind the boat
    -Stern drives can throttle the bow up to clear waves/rough water
    -Stern drives turn and maneuver much faster, which reduces cycle times, which leads to more time surfing
    -Stern drives are plentiful and significantly cheaper than v drive boats
    -Stern drives also come with powerful engines. My 19' Sea Ray has a 350, which is plenty of power for a 19' boat
    -I can create a smooth, sizeable, wake board wake by moving weight 2/3 to the front and slightly raising the trim

    These dumb boats are an epedemic on lakes. They just plow water at low speed and never even get up on plane. My 1996 19' Chaparral with a 5.7 V8 STERNDRIVE can smoke one of these 100k waste of money boats in a race.

    I went from a 97 sea Ray bow rider ($3,000) to a 05 SANTE sv211 for 30,000 ( $200 A month). And HOLY ODENS RAVEN it's better. There are plenty of great v drives for 20,000 to 40,000. Trust me get a loan, it's so worth it.

    sterndrives actually plane faster with less bow rise because you can trim drive down

    In either scenario the engine should not be running if a swimmer is close to the back of the boat. Secondly, my stern drive doesn't have that much bow rise when trimmed down. A wake tower can be installed on either boat so that is a moot point. And finally, a person on an average/decent income can actually afford a stern drive. The pricing on most direct drive boats is beyond ridiculous.

    I face planted behind a 130K Tige last week and behind a 5k Personal Watercraft this week. Hurt the same on both crashes. Wake to wake was much more fun behind the Tige. But I had helluva fun behind both.

    "You will never have any fun, and you pretty much suck if you don't spend 120k on your boat" That's the message I got. I'll keep my 20 year old direct drive that's been paid for since the day I pulled it home. Guess I'll just suffer through in ignorance.

    I just got a brand new V drive for 60K. Obviously most of you can't afford a top of the line wakeboarding boat, so don't get a top of the line one. There are plenty of V drive boats for sale that are used and cheap
