X2 Surf and Ski Setup
 
Hi All. Just purchased my first Mastercraft being a 2014 X2 with pro pack which includes the gen 2 surf system and centre plate. It has the 3 stock under floor ballast tanks. Just wondering if anyone has nailed a setup for surfing natural and goofy and also a setting for slalom skiing (I generally ski at 15 off 34mph). Any starting advice would be greatly appreciated.

Center plate down 70% for skiing. I replaced the stock rear bags with larger ones for surfing and wakeboarding. I haven't messed much with the factory surf settings. More weight in the front hurts surf performance, unless you counter it with weight in the rear.

Thanks for the info. I purchased mine second hand and the factory presets have been messed with so just wondering what the factory settings are? Do u put any ballast in the front when skiing?

These are the factory settings. I haven't tried adding any weight to the front when skiing.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...b3613a18f2.jpg

What did you replace the rear piggy back bags with? I would like to get some additional weight back there but not sure what would fit.

do you have any additional ballast in the back besides the factory. wakemakers makes a bag to fit the x2 (400 lbs per side) but you can get more in there like the xstar 700lbs.

I have the gen2 piggyback sacs that I believe are 400 lbs. It would be great if I could upgrade those to something larger but wasn't sure what would fit (and be safe for the hard tanks).

I replaced mine with my previous non-gen 2 boat bags. I think they are around 450 pounds. There is probably a little more space in the compartment for a larger bag yet. I can fit a life jacket or two on top of mine and still close the top.

Found that the factory settings worked pretty well with only a few people in the boat. My x2 only has underfloor ballast with no bags in rear lockers. I found it interesting that it states pins for the surf tabs should be in the aft hole? Mine is in the front. Does it make much difference.
