    Rear View Camera I like the mirror and its safer as you can see it and the water infront of you better.

    GoPro Intergration sucks as it cuts out the music on stereo.

    Other than that you get all the same features and functions.

    Thanks... That's very helpful. I guess I could have looked it up but I'm lazy.

    I've not seen nav on a car or truck or boat that compared to the nav products you can get on your phone (free) or via paid app. All of the vehicle embedded nav systems seem to suck imo. I could care less about the gopro integration or rear view cam. Thanks again.

    Fly to Nashville and you have accommodations and a slammed XT22 to try. Our boy Aric is closer LOL

    With some lead and upgraded rear sacs, the XT in my mind is a good value. Would I love the X22, absolutely. With my second one headed to College (at most likely a tier 1 private college) next fall, the XT looks great.

    Who on here has the single 7" screen, any regrets on not getting the duel? I kind of like the analog gauges up front. I'm looking for the most simple for my wife to operate...

    Have to say, that is one thing I'd like to see different - I'd like to be able to modify the standard profiles, so that the buttons on the main screen are still easy to use...
    Thanks for the tip Barneyferd!

I realize we aren't supposed to run the pumps above 1500 rpms as it can drain the battery however I think this is insignificant (Please tell me if I'm wrong about that!)

    Our 2020 X22 has 130 hours on it. The only profiles we ever use for surfing are the stock “steep left” and “steep right”. I’m going to try what the OP suggests.

    At about the 100 hour mark we bought 600 lbs of lead. We put 150 lbs under the port bag, 150 under the starboard bag. 50 under the seats on each side right about where the tower is. The last 200 lbs gets moved between the bow locker (when we want to motor over to the fuel dock) or on the floor as far aft as possible when surfing. I gotta say, the lead was definitely worth it.

    This is our first surf boat so we don’t have any other perspective. We like to switch from side to side. (I recently got a ride on a Malibu that had a wrist remote that allowed the surfer to swap the wave. The on the X22 it requires some pretty good communication between the driver and the surfer. Maybe MC will offer that in the future.)

    I’m curious about the above posts that say fill the switchback tank to 100%. I assumed that the reason that is not recommenced is so that it will quickly move the wave from one side to another. For those of you filling the switchback to 100% are you also switching the wave from side to side while surfing?

    Thanks very much for starting this thread! We are at 94 hours after getting the boat the first week of June. Family is loving it. My kids do like to switchback and we keep everything at 100%. As you say, it does take a little surfer/driver coordination. Also, when you flip sides, the center ballast automatically begin to drain so you need to quickly stop it. It's fairly easy to stop it in about a second and a half at 99% and fill it right back to 100% in two seconds. I realize we aren't supposed to run the pumps above 1500 rpms as it can drain the battery however I think this is insignificant (Please tell me if I'm wrong about that!)

    I thought about buying the parts and installing the OEM backrest. I decided against it because it doesn’t raise the cushion very much. It is a nice idea, but it isn’t particularly useful. (Just one man’s opinion.). The attached pictures gives perspective regarding how much higher my redneck version is compared to the OEM version.

    I did reuse the stock cushion, and I didn’t drill any holes. There was no need to patch anything.

    My original thought was that I was going to make a bracket out of stainless steel. I started out making what I thought would be a prototype out of poplar. It turned out good enough that I just painted it. Hahahahaha.

    Just stowed her for hibernation after a tremendous 96 hours in her first season.

    Will dream about this wave all winter.
