We added bigger bags in rear lockers. Wakemakers 40x25x20. They are 900's but probably only fill to around 800. I took the stock rear bags which I think are 400's and added them under rear seating area moved forward as much as possible. One on each side losing the cooler compartment. I plumbed those 2 400 bags to fill off center ballast hard tank. Vents go to rear bag vents with check valves from wakemakers. To drain them I have one tsunami mounted under seat on port side near batteries at the lowest point. Right now I just plug in to cigar lighter for power. Tabs 0-0-90 most of the time, I will lower center to 20% for longer wave sometimes. That's close to 4000lbs which makes a great wave. The only issue I had was the stock prop would barely pull that weight to 10.8mph. So I installed the Acme 2241 prop and it made a HUGE difference. It pulls the weight at around half throttle now. Also top speed is still 38mph and could never get more than 39 with stock prop. To sum it up.

Prop $550
Bigger bags for rear $400
Hose and fittings $200
Pump $50
$1200 makes the surf on NXT22 as good as the X23 they tried to sell me!
Hi jvic1983, I recently got a '19 NXT22 and looking to do the same thing you did (would like to put the stock 400's under rear seats and be able to fill/drain them automatically).. Can you go into a little more detail on how you plumbed them into center tank and maybe what your thoughts are a couple years later on what you would have done differently if anything? Basically running same issue as most on this thread, running with stock setup on Surf Gen2 not quite enough push for adult riders and my port side that I ride on seems weaker than starboard, no matter what settings. Thanks!

What are the differences the xt21 has?

Is the xt have the ztf4? Screen difference?

The nxt22 is a great boat but look at all the differences between them. With the nxt22 you'll want to upgrade the rear sacks.

Surf Setup for NXT22?

Would adding the710ís to the rear and leaving the rest of factory ballast stock without additional mid or front ballast, improve surf wave?
Contemplating exchanging the rear 400ís to 710ís on my NXT22

Yes, if you want to go over board add 3k lead and see what happens

The easiest would be 710s in the rear and 700 in lead mid and slightly bow side.
