X46 surf setup

Just started surfing with my buddies and kids. Have played with a few different settings but looking for advice on best setup? Really not wanting bags laying all over the place so hoping there are some bags that fit inside existing storage? Or are there bags that can replace stock bags that are bigger and will fit inside lockers?

Appreciate the advice.

450lbs of lead around the engine, and larger custum sacs in rear make all the difference.

Custom sacs are $500 each, you can talk to Mike Seipel at fatsac/barefoot international he should have my custom sac measurements, otherwise I can help you out.

I've done a lot of small improvements to accomodate the larger sacs and make them work properly, I'll try to get them together

This is based on a early 2014 X46, I think some things might have been changed/improved since then. Keep in mind I try to perfect things, most of this might not really be needed.
-elbow outputs on the tank overflow for a lower point of overflow
-thicker rear engine compartment dividers 15mm thick (the rear half of the dividers)
-seperate overflows for the sacs
-check valves in the tank overflows, so water can flow in the sacs when filling and air can flow in the tanks when emptying
-smoothing all the glass edges with duct tape, as well as everything sharp and edgy you find in the back storage
-hdpe inserts so the flip seats won't be pushed up, little less water in the sacs might do the same

Sorry no current videos/pictures, will try to change that...

I agree with the lead in the back.

I'm interested in looking into the custom rear sacs. How much weight do you gain with the custom sacs over stock?

My larger rear sacs look like this and hold roughly 730lbs each, I don't really know what the factory Gen2 sacs hold as I never had any.
Volume calculation is based on a hard shape but keep in mind sacs do shape themselves into the compartment so it can be more or a little less.
