When the boat moves through the water, the water is pushed under and around the boat. The water will eventually come together directly behind the center of the boat. The water coming up below the boat will rise vertically with the prop wash and create a "V" pattern wake. The SuckGate displaces the water coming around the side of the boat so the water from both sides does not come together. This creates an unbalanced wake. The water coming up below will rise with more force creating the "Curl" and "Push" that allows you to Wakesurf! Prices are in USD and Free Shipping in Canada and US.

How do I install the SuckGate?
The SuckGate is installed using industrial strength suctions cups. Install the SuckGate on the opposite side of the boat from the surfer. Position the SuckGate on a relatively flat or curved surface below the waterline. It is best to weight your boat first, so you know where the water line is and what is the best spot for the SuckGate.
Does it float?
No it doesn't! But it comes with a leash so you can leash it up before you put it on.
How much weight should I put in my boat?
Weight the boat evenly left to right, there is no need to put more weight on either side with the SuckGate. More weight in the back will make the wake taller and shorter, more weight in the front will make it lower and longer. Most people do a 70%/30% or 60%/40% weight split in the back and front.
What Speed should I go
The more weight in the boat the faster you will need to go to get the wave you are looking for. Start with 10.5 mph and see how it looks. Slower speed will make the wake taller, faster speed will make it longer. Each boat is different as it depends on the hull shape/length and weight in the boat.
