surfing a power boat wave

It is fun to surf a power boat wave. Suppose a 20ft power boat is going 20 mph. What is the speed of the bow wave? Is it really possible for a kayak to surf at the same speed as the power boat? How fast are surf kayaks traveling when they are surfing a 6 ft ocean wave? By now maybe you have deduced I feel the need for speed and would love to see a video on tv of a kayak surfing beside a power boat to set a Guiness record.
