  • Wake Surfing

    Thought I'd start a new Thread for anything and everything wake surfing. Add your pictures, questions or comments from weighting the boat, tab settings etc. anything to do with surfing

    First Pic - How we load the boat
    Second Pic - My son Thrashing it
    Third Pic - 2 at once, did not catch it on camera, but have a video of my son surfing up behind my son-in-law and jumping from his board to the other. They nailed it on the 2nd try!

    Good looking wave. I have an x-15 and cant seem to get the back corner in the water enough no matter how much weight I put back there. What is your set up?

      Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding...

      You know they all have a little string hanging out, but it's not a tampon, it's a price tag...

        We have the X2 specific sacs in the rears, I think they are 425lbs, Port full, KGB full. Center tab up, I don't have surf tabs. I don't think we had it filled for this shot, but a 350lb down the walkway helps extend the wave some. All peeps on the port side, does help to have at least one person in the bow. We have had 10 on the boat and the rub rail touching the water, but the wave was not much more than what you see in this picture!

        Hope that helps! Almost forgot, play with your speed, around 9.6 on the PP for my boat, depending on how many people, I might bump it up or down a bit, just watch the wave and adjust as you are running.

          We have an 2010 X-2 that loaded out with Surf tabs. We run 400# in the port locker, Port tank full, 400# on the back seat, 400 on the port seat, and 400 down the middle with the KGB full.

          As has been said before, if you can put someone up front it can lengthen the wave nicely.

          We also have found that 9.4 to 10.4 is great on the PP

            Guy correct me if I'm wrong but the X-15 and the X-2 are pretty close to the same underneath is that correct?

              Yes they are the same...I have been on a quest to perfect this darn wake for surfing. I have port ballast filled with a plumbed (piggyback) integrated overflow jumbo sac (1100lbs when completely full but due to space limitations prob fills to about 500-700lbs) in port locker, I have two 425lb sacs that I have been playing around with where to put them. We usually do not fill the KGB because everyone I have spoken to about this says to fill the back corner. I can't remember the back corner of our boat near as low to the water as the above pictures...

                        depending on the amount of people and if we put the L shaped Sac on the port seat... we can put a rub rail in the water. we run the KGB full to half full... As one pro here in texas put it.... Add weight until you feel uncomfortable... then add a little more.

                              Ive always said...load it till it wont plane, then back it off until the wave is clean.
