02 X-30 with 5.7 260hp, is that Enough to Surf?

Hello, I'm looking at buying a 2002 X-30 with the Indmar 5.7 260HP motor. I would really like to surf off this boat. So I was planning to replace the ballast system with 750 bags in the rear lockers and upgrade the pumps. In 2002, one of the optional motors was the 8.1L with 425hp. 425HP compared to 260HP, seems like it might be underpowered. My question is, will the 260HP motor be able to do what I need it to do? Or should I look for a different boat with a bigger motor? Thank you
