1. A boat configured to modify its wake for wake surfing, the boat comprising:

  • a hull comprising port and starboard side strakes, a bottom, a transom aft said side strakes, and a longitudinal axis, wherein when said hull moves through water, water flows along the port and starboard side strakes and then beyond the transom to at least in part form a first wake;

    starboard and port upright water diverters each movable between a first position and a second position, said second position of said starboard water diverter laterally extending beyond said starboard side strake at the transom substantially perpendicular to said longitudinal axis of the hull, and said second position of said port water diverter laterally extending beyond said port side strake at the transom substantially perpendicular to said longitudinal axis of the hull, wherein when said hull moves through water, said starboard diverter in said second position redirects water passing along said starboard side strake as said water moves beyond said transom to produce a port side surf wake different from said first wake and wherein when said hull moves through water, said port diverter in said second position redirects water passing along said port side strake as said water moves beyond said transom to produce a starboard side surf wake different from said first wake and different from said port side surf wake.
