How do you like that byerly volt? We are thinking about getting one when the 2014 stuff comes out and 2013 goes on sale.

My kids free surf my X-1 with stock ballast, 2 kids and me in the boat. They always ride starboard because, unfortunately, the largest piece of ballast sits in the drivers seat. Put 10 people in the boat and it's a pretty good wave.

I was looking at pulling the hard tanks and replacing with 750s. My stock KGB is leaking and was thinking about pulling it and going with a 650 bow sack.

What are your thought?
Mine is a 2013 and the two 400 sacks are on top of the factory ballast. I run at 10.6mph with the attitude plate at 100%.

I actually don't run with any weight in the bow, I tried this earlier this year and it didn't make a difference in mine. My buddy has an early 2000's maristar which is the x-10 without the ballast. He runs 400 in the rear locker, 400 port seat and 400 port bow. Not the same as mine but that isnduento the hull.

For the money it is good. Haven't been on an inland surfer or anything but it gets the job done!

So I tried to run the boat with the stock ballast completely filled plus both 450's in the back filled plus the 540 in the bow filled. Then just tried to use the trim tab to 100% on the starboard side to surf the Port side. TERRIBLE, unsurfable.... We then emptied a couple of hundred pounds from the starboard side and filled an extra 540 in the port side locker along the side of the boat and the surf wake was money...

Long story short, you can't surf the x-25 by filling all the ballast tanks and just using the surf tabs to clean the wake up. There's a video of the x-10 being able to do it I think? X-25 is a for sure no on that one....
