x-14v fat sac on the floor seriously?

Okay- we currently have a 07 x-1. We surf quite a bit but ski (slalom, trick, swivel) more than wakeboard-of course the wake is a bit disappointing. We have young children who will most likely want to board in the future. Mom and Dad enjoy boarding but can't afford to get hurt and regret the crashes more and more. So the long/short of it, we are looking to trade into the x-14v, but the test drive has me wondering if surfing is going to be a reality without a sac in every compartment and on the floor? Okay I'm overreacting, but reading through the posts have not settled my nerves about this.

We will have an additional sac installed in the port side compartment. A sac up front might be an option if needed, but I do not want to give up the all the cruise comfort and storage as we have little skis, kids, and stuff.

Is anyone having luck with their x-14v surf wake without all 11 friends in the boat? Whats the new word about tiliting/raising the swim platform. How do I read up more about the best options for set up?

Any help is appreciated!!!

X14V Surf Wake

I added 350 lbs in the ski locker (under side seat) This helped as well. PP set at 10.4MPH

We have a lot of customers with X14s and X14Vs and they surf just fine. Takes some weight, but especially in the X14V it's easy to get enough to have a very respectable surf wake.

Does anyone have pics or a video of that "respectable surf wake" mentioned above as being possible on the X14V? What I have seen so far is not very impressive. New pics!?!? Impress us!!! Oh and if you don't mind, please tell us how you are weighting the boat. Thanks!
