I am most comfortable being perpendicular or at an angle to wakes. That said, with so much boat traffic in some of the areas I fish, I inevitably find myself parallel to an occasional wake, sometimes of pretty good size. Thankfully, I haven't had a real test of whether a boat wake could turn over my PA. I have found that as long as I'm not too close to shore and the wake is mostly a swell and not breaking, the PA is super stable and will ride over without a problem. I"m not necessarily recommending this, but I often stand in my PA and I've been able to ride over many waves without sitting. Of course, I ALWAYS have on my PFD as I know I can lose my balance in an instant, even in a stable craft like the PA
I recommend doing some experimentation. Go out in your PA without all of your fishing gear and try taking wakes from different angles. Of course, make sure you wear your PFD. See how it feels to take a wake sideways or when you are standing and how you can shift your weight for added stability in heavier waves. I've been caught by surprise more than once with my back to a wake, but I've become accustomed to how that feels and how to stabilize myself or get in my seat quickly. I've even thought about flipping my PA in a pool to see what it takes to right the ship if needed. I know others have posted their experiences trying this.
I get comments about the PA every time I'm out. People are amazed at how easily and quickly it gets around and bass boaters look jealous when I venture into thick grassy areas they don't dare to approach. I'm certain I've sold a few boats for my local Hobie dealer as a I'm prone to talk up the PA with anyone who is interested!
