02 xstar ballast

Just purchased my first boat, it being a 02 xstar and i need some advise on when to use the center and rear ballast tanks. Should you fill all three when you surf/wakeboard?

Any advise on how to make skiing / surfing and wakeboarding more fun behind this awesome boat using ballest would be great.

Thanks

wakeboarding all 3 + more weight evenly balanced and distributed 60/40 rear front....

Surfing fill up center and the side you surf on.

from what i've read on the forum the xstar surfing isn't the greatest wave...but here is JerseyDave's setup on his:
For surfing:

750# sac port side locker, 400# sac on port side seat, fill KGB tank, everyone sits on the port side of the boat (and try 1-2 people in bow portside too)
The sweet spot is still pretty close to the swim platform, but with an X-star it's hard to make a long "pocket"

I bet to differ...

seems like a decent pocket to me there...



1 750 in port locker. nothing else. 1 person on port side + driver.
