View Full Version : Surfing behind the X35

Some suggestions for a sweet surf wake behind the X35.
I have recently discovered how to distribute the weight for a really nice surf wake. I place an 1100lb sac in the large rear space beside the engine compartment and stretch it out over the batteries. Then I place ~500lb sac in the observer seat. The port side internal ballast is filled. The middle ballast is empty. I found that moving the 500lb sac up in the boat makes for a longer sweet spot. I surf at 11.2MPH.
Another suggestion. Make sure you are in 15-20 feet of water. The size of your wake is dependent on the amount of water displaced. You can't displace as much water in shallow areas.

I hope this helps.
