This is our x15 wake. Stock port full, kgb full, and 8 people in the boat including the driver. At 11.2mph. This will be the before pic, just ordered a 750# and a 400# sac.

Nice. Love my X-15's surf wake. The bags will make a big difference.

It has great shape all around. Good round swell in front and push all the way to the curl. Now we're just working on making it bigger in every aspect. Basically its proportions seem perfect to me.

We tested our new (new to us) 09 X15's surf wake over the weekend. Same set up, port full, KGB full, 7ppl on boat. Shape of wake was good over 10.5 (I'll take pics this week when we head back up on Wednesday). Only problem was being able to ride the wake without holding on to the rope. I cannot seem to find a sweet spot that will allow me to cruse the wake. No issue doing snaps and driving up and down the wake, however I cannot do it with out the rope. I've tried pumping up and down the wake, but my skill with pumping is beginner. I pulled a rider yesterday that was pulled the day before on someones malibu (no idea what kind, but I do know it was a 2013) and they let go of the rope and rode for a long time with no problem. The surfer was new and had no idea why she was able to ride the malibu w/out rope, while she was not able to ride my X15 w/out rope.

Like I said, my inability to ride without the rope maybe my inexperience. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Im not real sure, one day last year our wake just "clicked". It took me a while to go ropeless but now im able to cut all the way back to the curl. Typically with 6, 7, or 8 people everyone is in the back corner at 10.8mph (never less). Once we get upwards of eight i start putting people in the bow and run 11-11.2mph to lengthen the wave. Make sure the trim tab is all the way up. Also i try to tune the wave before anyone gets on the board (although you will lose the weight of one person). And make sure the water is deep enough. I feel like im forgetting something here. Gotta love mondays.

I will add that i weigh 175 and ride a phase 5 daniello pro carbon with a 2" fin. I learned on a hyperlite broadcast 4'8". Real easy to learn on but maxed it out quickly. Two of our surfers are around 220 or so and one is able to cut ropeless some and one is just starting to ride ropeless. Im able to ride and cut until my legs just give out (all over the wave). So i dunno, id say youll be like me and one day the light will just come on.

I am hoping my now straightened shaft and strut will help with our wave. Yours looks great.

Cool - I hope the light will come on soon and I'll be ear to ear smiles. I'm 195 lbs, riding a loaner LF fish, 5'3". I am seriously considering pulling the trigger on a Inland Surfer Tako board - looks sweet and not too expensive.

I will increase the speed next time I go out and ride. That may make a big difference.

Thats what i was forgetting, i just had to replace our prop and upgraded to a 1285 from acme. It pops you outa the water better, the boat runs better (bottom and top end), and honestly the wake seems slightly cleaner and fatter. Just be careful with shoulder sockets and it tops out 4 mph higher but it will hit limiter.

Ear to ear smiles is right... I cant get enough, just need to start pulling off tricks so i dont get burnt out and go stale.

The Sacs came in, maybe it will stop raining long enough to try them.

It was pretty nice, would have been a little cleaner if Bos foot wasnt dragging in the water... That was 11 people in the boat. Im hoping to try the sacs in the morning but so far its been good for a small boat.

Nice wake and good technique. Last night I finally was able to ride the wake without the need for the rope - finally!!! A big part of my problem was having too much weight back and not enough forward on the board. Once I realized how to increase my board speed, the light finally went on. Hoping for good weather today. Go away rain!!!

Our wake is decent size with all stock ballast and 5 ppl on board.

Awesome man, good to hear! This rain is really starting to piss me off. Finally on vacation and it rains the entire time. Of course the day i go back to work its supposed to clear up.

Mossy - do you have surf tabs? There is a surf tab thread trending on the general page. I am wondering if they would help on the X15

I do not, we have added a 750# in the locker and a 400# under the port seat since that pic was taken. I would like to add them and i know the wife would so we could level the boat better when we arent moving. It gets a little sketchy with a lot of weight on one side. But now we're looking at upgrading to a 30 or 46.

Does CO make anyone else nervous about riding the swim platform or is it just me?

Ive been meaning to bring that up. We tested an X46 the other day and i could smell the exhaust at surf speeds from the back of the boat and while surfing. Same goes for my buddies x25. Not once behind my 15 have i smelled it. It seems odd to me, even without ours weighted down the exhaust is underwater. Not so for the 25/46. Anyone else run into this?

Anyways, got a pic of the wake with the sacs added. 750 in port locker, 400 in the bow, and 8 people. Normally we have the 400 under the port seat but moved it due to all the people in the boat. Made it nice and long.

And a saturday in the summer of 2013 wouldnt be complete without a nasty storm.
