Not much for set up, empty on ballast and the trim plate at 70%. I ski at about 37mph. The wake on the 30 is much softer than the wake on our 14v, IMO.

That's what my dealer recomended. The only thing he said the tabs do is clean up and stretch out the surf wake? Not a big fan of having extra ballast, we need the storage and space for the dog, friends and extra crap!

I found that they helped before I had much extra ballast. I dont think they help at all now.... I run a 400lb in the locker, 700 under the lounge seat, and another 400 under the observer seat. plus stock KGB and port tanks. The wave is SO much better with proper ballast.

Been wondering how much better the 6.2 is than the 6.0 in the 30 and if its worth the extra money. Anyone try this combo?

^^^x2. I live at 5000 feet ant have the same thoughts.

Also, with additional 750's in the lockers and maybe some front ballast under the bow cushions, would a x25 throw a significantly larger or better wake?

I haven't rode an X-25 this way but the 30 wake with this setup is huge!

In my tests of both, I feel the 30 would be a be a better surf wave with this setup. 25 is still very nice though.

We have a 25 and just ordered a 30. Here is mt 2 cents after useing both. The 30 is much better surfing. 25 is much better wakeboarding if you are experienced. The wake can be quite large and scary for a beginner. The 30's wake for boarding is much more melow. Skiing behind the 25 is not alot of fun, but that was not the design purpose. You can easliy ski behind a 30.
