I think for all the things you plan to use your boat for, the X-30 would be a great fit. There is a member on here who owns an X-2 and he test drove the 25 and the 30 and he was most impressed with the 30 not only for it's surfing and wakeboarding ability but for how well it handled and nicely it drove.

I agree with bambamski1 on most of his points. I think the X-30 wakeboard wake is a more mellow wake, similar to a 3rd Gen Xstar/Bu wake. It can however handle a ton of weight and get quite big. The X-25 is a steeper wake (more like a CC or even a Supra) and requires less ballast to get to a really nice size/shape.

Below is an X-30 wake with just the stock 1k running at about 21mph. I will say that if you prefer to wakeboard at higher speeds like 24-25, the X-30 is not "great" at those speeds. It really is the best in the 19-23 range, but is still clean down to 17.
