Thanks all for your help.

The prop I have appears to have the same pitch and diameter as the recommended wakesurfing prop from Wakemakers. I'm not sure if there is any more to the science....

I think I am going to settle on the 720's and the engine divider reinforcement.
May be a few weeks before I am able to get the parts and put it together.
I"ll send an update with photos...

I had a 2007 x2 and I used a wakegate device with it and had a great surf wake. I would fill the stock ballast completely and then I would fill two 350lb bags in each locker and the x2 horseshoe bow bag that wakemakers sells. After that I would place either a 550lb bag on the seats or use people on the side we were surfing to list the boat a bit. We ran at 10.6 and had great push and decent length. I would be afraid of leaving the ballast full while on the lift, that's a lot of stress on the relatively small area supported by the bunks. I think you'll get cracks pretty soon. When surfing or wakeboarding I always targeted 3000lbs of weight between people and ballast.

I have flipped the Jabsco pumps and reprogrammed the timers for 20 minute duration, replaced one of the pumps that had a broken magnet.
Just purchased the Wakemakers 35Lx25Wx20H -710lb sacks and all the needed fittings to connect with the hard tanks in the back compartment.
Also purchased the engine divider panel savers, a new ACME prop, and all the replacement parts to fix the messed up parts from hitting a rock last weekend (new shaft, new strut, new bearings, etc)....
Should have it back in the water in a week or two (pending shipping to Hawaii..) Kona winds are coming back so the water is calm - feel like I'm missing out...

I'll take photos of the Surf Wave when done. Stay tuned!

Don't forget to implement a surf gate at some sort. Suck gate, ghetto gate etc - makes a big improvement

Yes i have a suckgate. Home made using the HOD, some aluminum, a door hinge and 1/2" Starboard material. Works pretty well, but I may eventually build a permanent system similar to the Malibu.

Are you new to wake surfing? How far back from the boat are you trying to surf? With the X2 we can surf pretty easily about 6' back from the stern, with lighter people further back.
This ^. We can surf our 2007 X2 bone stock, but the added rear bag on surf side helps.......

Ran it yesterday with the new 710#sacs which fit perfectly in the X2. Also have the new prop (ACME 14.5x14.25)
Wave was monstrous in comparison to having just the two 250# sacs the back (1300# before).
Yesterday the total ballast weight was 2470#
710# in each locker, hard tanks full, plus 250# in the front. I still have an additional 250# sac that I'm not using.
Photo below was at 11mph. The swim platform is fouling the wave otherwise it would likely be taller... also the water was super choppy and it was windy. let me know your thoughts on wave size....
next two mods will certainly include the FAE and a 4-6" lift on the swim platform.

Looks good. I think if you list the boat a little it will clean up that lip and make it nice and crisp.

Do you have an attitude adjustment plate? It will clean up the wave assuming you don't.
