x2 gen 2 surf system settings

I just purchased a 2014 x2 with the Gen 2 surf system and I was wondering if anyone has found the ideal settings for the surf tabs and ballast system? So far I have had the best wave with all the ballasts full with the side tab at 55% and the center tab at 100%. Any tips for me?

These work pretty good for my X25.

Each boat is different. This is what I posted for an xstar.

First, I have changed all the profiles to 100% fill for all bags and tanks.

Second, know what changes to the tabs does. Don't use the center tab at all. The lesser the tab setting the steeper the wake and shorter, the higher the tab setting the more mellow and longer. The tab setting affects the steepness more than the length.

Third, the slower the speed the steeper and shorter, the faster the speed the more mellow and longer. Speed affects the length more than the steepness. I have found that the starboard/goofy surfing takes more speed.

Fourth, if you have too much weight (people) in the front you will lose push from the wake. I have found that ideal distribution is 2 back to 1 front, keeps plenty of push and the bow doesn't get too high.

In order to make the changes to the wake easier, I have added several profiles. This takes some time up front, but saves tons later and makes it easier for others to change the wake for you. Last year I had my profiles named based on the tab settings L40=40% tab, L70=70% tab, etc. Last winter I had the software updated and can no longer use numbers in the profile name, so I use letters LA, LB, etc. (bigger pain)

All regular/port settings use 10.8 mph
LA= 40% tab (Steepest)
LB= 50% tab
LC= 60% tab (normal setting)
LD= 70% tab
LE= 80% tab
LF= 90% tab
LG= 100% tab (mellowist)

Goofy/starboard setting use 11.0 mph
R= 100% tab

We don't have any goofy riders. The only thing we use the R setting for is transfers. With all the bags full, the goofy side is steep on its own. If there is not enough weight on the starboard side it will actually be too steep and not clean. I will actually have people move to the starboard side if someone is going to try to ride on the goofy side (probably why stock settings only have you fill the port tank or bag fill 50%. If you have goofy riders on a regular basis you might want to go back to this setting or put lead or other weight on the starboard side.

Turn off autolaunch, you won't need it and it can make the tabs come out of adjustment faster.

From time to time you may notice the wake not being as expected. This is due to the tabs not being where the computer thinks they are. What I do to fix this is when we stop I will manually raise all the tabs to 0% and keep holding the button for a few seconds to make sure the tabs retract all the way.

If you surf in a river of other body of water with a current, you will need to adjust the speed depending on whether your going with or against the current since the speed control is gps based.

Anyone know how to change profiles on the 4.3" screen? My surf left profile isn't set to 100% for right rear ballast instead it is set to 0%. Same as Surf Right profile where left rear ballast isn't set to 100% instead it is set to 0%. How do I set all ballast back to 100% for all surf profiles?
I have tried a reset for user settings which adjust ballast times, but didn't change which tanks fill.
