Thumbs up Anybody get out with Gen 2 behind the X30 yet?

Surely someone has to have an X30 with Gen2 and be blessed to live somewhere that the water temp is tolerable this time of year?

Where are ya, where are some pics and videos comparing the proven listed wave to the Gen2 wave? Im curious to know the general publics take on this and not a promotional video. Also curious to know what kind of weight works well with the Gen2 in the X30 in particular.

Thanks!

My guess is we still have about 2 months before we really see some good hard video of a properly weighted Gen2 wave. I think the first few will be ok at best. My thought is you will need to evenly weight the boat to get the most effect from the Gen 2 but I could be wrong. The good thing is we all know that the X-30 is a great surf boat without the system

I realize it's likely going to make a better listed wave without Gen2 and simply listed.
I just want to see what the Gen2 can do when weighted properly.

I've been wondering too. We usually wakeboard with about 3-3500 lbs but surf with 2k. The wave is perfect, so I wonder what tabs plus more weight will do for the wave and also fuel useage. Theoretically, since it's evenly weighted you should be able to load up much more weight. Something will have to be done with the platform I assume, when we are fully loaded for wakeboarding it's a good 8" under water

Do you think Teak is better for surfing or fiberglass?

Theyre both raised up with the gen 2, so shouldn't they be about the same?

What he means I think is the swim deck sits higher. Part of the retrofit package for 2013's includes a spacer for the swim deck to raise it up a bit as I understand.
