I live on the Colorado River AZ in the Parker Strip area ... we have clean water for about 2-3 hours in the mornings and then for about 1 hr in the evenings for wakeboarding. Then is gets very rough. We then want to start Surfing in the mid-day. The only drawback to the x-25 was the small storage area for additional ballast ? to make good surf wakes ? What is your thoughts on the x-25 for us. Has anyone been able to dial in this boat for wake surfing ?
We were going to order the boat with Plug n Play Ballast, Power tower, big engine and the norm options.
X-25 is arguably the best surfing boat that MC currently has, and it is not a problem to get that boat weighted to have an excellent surf wake. The steeper deadrise of that hull also means that it will handle ruff water better than some of the other pickle fork boats, unless you step up to an X-35 or X-55.
