I have to agree to disagree - On my X25 anyway - We use no ballast, set the Gen II tabs up to create a good wave, slightly different than with ballast, a little more left tab, less center tab & slower speed (10.5) The wave has a ton of push, less intimidating for newbie's on the pull up, very slow start & boom! Taught my granddaughter (11) in 1 day, she was surfing sans rope on her second day!

When the rider is 50 pounds soaking wet, it's very easy to run with zero ballast. Heck you can run with nulled out tabs and the wake will still push a small beginner. It's different when you have a newby in the 175-200 pound range.... With out the bigger wave and ballast the person's arms get tired rather fast because of the lack of push...
