Exclamation Ballast settings for surfing/wakeboarding?

I just purchased a 2010 X2 with 15 hours completely loaded for $55,000!
I need to know what ballast/surftab/where people should sit settings I need.
Some stuff to consider for settings, I have:
The B.I.G. system
Factory Ballast
Surf Tabs
and usually 5 or 6 people with me(100-180lbs)

Dude, chill out that's a little rude! That is of course unless you know this guy personally. I do realize that he took a dump on the other for sale Listing though. Just a little lead by example might be better.

You are correct, but it's also rude to lie.

So am I missing something here? I realize the guy crapped on the other thread but I really dont see the need to be so agressive. Besides, even if it is true that daddy bought it whats he big deal. While I work my butt off for my toys, I am not going to jump his crap for something so petty.

Jeesh, forgive me. I didn't know I was being so cruel. Yes, I could have rephrased the ? better.

After post #3 in this thread:

It's a simple sarcastic question for him:

Really... Totally not true, we surfed even with stock, better with sacks and people. My set up '09, stock + 400# rears and a 350# center. X2 will perfom well with 40% front & 60% rear weight distribution. For surfing, load your surf side, no center tab. The X2 is so terrible, you can surf with 2 people...lol The last 2 pics are wakeboarding, not me but I have seen guys do the same stuff behind my boat as Stars loaded etc.
