How do you build the perfect wake? By using Fat Sacs to enhance your wakeboarding experience as placing weight in different parts of your boat can change the shape of wakes, and are used by wake boarders and wake surfing enthusiasts alike. By adding ballast bags to your boat it will help the boat to sit lower in the water, especially on the side you will be surfing on. To create an optimal wake surfing wake, generally the majority of the ballast weight in the back corner plus smaller amounts of ballast distributed towards the front, lengthens and smooths out the wake. Wholesale Marine offers a full line of Fat Sacs for your boat, manufactured by Barefoot International, and ranging in weight from 260 to 1450 pounds.

What to Know Before You Buy Ballast Bags
Our friendly staff has more hands on experience than anyone else to help ensure you find the perfect ballast bag for both your boat and your needs at the best possible price. Our team can school you in Ballast Bags 101. To begin, it is very important to determine how much weight you will need and where, as they can have a huge effect on your wake as well as the way your boat drives. Never trailer your boat with ballast in it as the extra weight on your trailer will affect road handling, burn more fuel, wear out tires, and may cause failure of the trailer bearings.
