I got the surf wave pretty nice on our new X-25. The wake for boarding is pretty large too. My buddy normally surfs the other side but I had it setup for me. The wake in the last pic was before we dialed it in. I am glad we got all three tabs because they make a huge difference both boarding and surfing.

This first vid is from Aug 14th

Just started to try surf style 360's. Today was day three. Finally landed one and was pumped

These vids and first pic were added after this first post:

Video 2. She didn't lose it at the end of the video, she saved it but my buddy cut the clip so the clips weren't too long.

Video 3. This is my buddy Mike. He's 220lbs. I took him once last week and he made a few hits and today was his second time ever surfing. He's hooked on wake surfing to say the least. He was so stoked to ride all over wireless.

Mike and Angies first tandem run! My four son just turned 4months and stood on the surf board for the first time today in the water almost on his own. Just needed some help balancing

Stock ballast, four adults (three were women totaling 330) that don't weigh much and two fat sac cubes in the back (350lbs total).

That is sickE (with a capital E)!

I get my 25 on the lake next week for the first time. I added 750# sacs to each rear locker. If my surf wake is as good as yours, I'll be stoked!

750 in the rear locker? Does that even fit?

I was wondering that too. My two 150lbs bricks take up most all the room in the back locker.

WakeMakers sells an X25 package that adds 710lbs total with three additional bags:

http://www.wakemakers.com/mastercraf...y-ballast.html

They don't have a kit that adds 750lbs in each rear locker according to them. Their three bags are 710lbs total so each one isn't more than a few hundred pounds. I have managed to get about 500lbs in the back locker in our X25 and another 1800lbs plus the stock ballast. We have about 2500-2600lbs in it now.


I will put up some new pics this week. Our wave is way better than the pics I've posted now that it's dialed in 100% and we have all the ballast we need.

Do you think all this weight or needed? Or Could you do with your initial set up? I am still trying to figure out my setup, playing around with a 450 bag and a 250 + the stock ballast.

I fill up port, put the 450 bag on the back of the bench, 250 bag upfront with 2 people. Not sure what to do with the wakeplate.

Wake is still short, and i can't let the rope go for long.

Any ideas? Not looking for an overkill setup. Something descent to surf far enough.

With 750lbs back there plus the stock ballast yours will be even better than ours. I only have two fat bricks (350lbs) back in that corner. Just put some bodies on which ever side plus in the front to lengthen the wave and it'll be sick for sure. Or if you have tabs those do a great job as well. Have you posted up pics of your 25? I might put a 1000lbs sac on the port side to make it even bigger soon.
