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.

I've messed with a current generation ballast but just
for wakeboarding.

I'd imagine filling the surf side tank + another 700-1,100 lbs should be pretty decent. Use the tabs and the KGB to lengthen the pocket until you're happy with it.

Sink the boat (about 3000 lbs total) so that the ski platform is about 1" under water and the PF X-2 throws a nice wake. Gets a bad rap as a surf boat, but there are some folks who manage a decent surf wake. Add weight to one side until you think it is going to roll over, then add a little more! Watch the rollers over the side and watch your gas cap. Make sure the latter does not go under water! Have fun.

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:
