Mission Delta Surf Tab on X15

I have an 2009 X15 and was wondering if anyone can tell me what the ideal set up is for a mission delta wake surf tab including placement and balllasts fill.

Mission Delta Surf Tab on X15

Hereís where I put mine at. I fill all ballast and weight boat evenly. The wave shaper should be about 2/3 in the water with the boat fully weighted. Install on the opposite side your surfing

Youíve gotta keep it above the body lines slightly. If itís too deep in the water the water pressure will rip it off. The reason I weight the boat evenly is because if you list the boat sometimes itíll pull the mission out of the water and it wonít do itís job! That rear body line that comes up on the x15 keeps you from putting the shaper any lower

I have a 2009 also. We don't have tabs like Mindbender does. I mount mine on bottom rail of boat. Same location as mindbender, but about 8" lower and 3" father back. I list the boat slightly and have a awesome wave.

Mine never rips off, as I learned the key was to press each handle hard against boat, then cam it over. Once I started doing that , it never pops off.

I donít use the surf tabs on my boat, the wave shaper (mission delta) forms a much better wave and if I use the trim tabs the wave looses push. Iíll give your mounting a try and see what happens but the video I linked from mission states to mount it where it is 2/3 of the way in the water. If I had more rear ballast I would suspect my mounting would be even higher. Mounting for me seem to be different depending on how the boat is weighted

It would be nice to see a pic of the body lines on the 2009, mine is a 2011 and there may be a difference

Alright, Iím going to update this post, I was hoping coloradodude would of posted a picture of his setup as mine is 2011. I tried mounting my mission where he claimed he mounts his on his 2009 and and it did stick and didnít come off by the wave it produced was far from surfable. My boat works best with the device mounted where it is my my photo above which is how missing claims it should be mounted. My two cents, every boat is different the info Iíve provided works great on a 2011 https://youtu.be/_f1PdXbANoY

Here is a pic of where I mount the mission. What we have we found is it really cleans up the wake, but does not add that much to the push. Last time I tried mounting it higher I got some spray on my back seat. I know the mission is working down there as I have run without it and wave is not that clean. The mission cleans wave up nicely

The second pic is of our wave. My wife is 5'9" so as you can see it is pretty tall, which is what we like.
Only 2 people in the boat, but almost 950lbs on rear port side and 600lbs in rear starboard.

As you can see the boat lists a little which raises the Mission. If I had tabs I might weight the boat even, and raise mission. This has been working for us, so I haven't tried tinkering to much. Next time out I might try raising the mission. Always in search of a better wake. haha

Original poster had a 2009 x-15, which is what mine is( without tabs), so I was just giving him a starting point.

Mindbender , Have you added bags on top your hard tanks yet? You will be amazed at how much more push you will get and how much taller your wave will get.

Wow, I tried mounting mine that low and it did not work for me, Iíve ordered the bags to go on top of my hard tanks, they should be here next week but for now Iíve been using 2 800 lb bags, one up front in the walkway and the other on the floor in front of the rear seat. Kinda a pain in the *** but itís surfing a lot better, especially if I only have 3 or 4 people that decide to come. Still not getting as far back as Iíd like but the push really improved. Thinking about trying that new wave shaper that claims it lengthens the sweet spot but itís a $300 gamble, also donít like the fact that it doesnít have a tether
