2017 NXT22 Wakesurf tips

Other post on this subject get off topic and hard to follow. Looking for information on surfing behind 2017 NXT22 with factory ballast.
I have not found a wave that has great push. I'm am 6'0" 200 and can ride without rope on a liquid force skim style board (Keen) but it is hard to stay in the wave. My wife and kids can ride without rope for as long as they want.
Does anyone have any tips to improve the wave with the factory ballast.
Tab Settings?
Speed?
Thanks

The Liquid Force Keen I have is a small board - 54". I have tried an assortment of boards.
1. Liquid Force Rocket 5'0". Could not ride ropeless at all
2. LF Rocket 5'4". Could go ropeless but was a battle to stay up.
3. LF 48" Keen - Tried the small Keep board just for fun and was the best board for me by far. I can stay up without rope but it is a constant battle.

Just feel like I should be able to ride the Rocket and other surf style boards and cruise better which I can behind other peoples boats

Picture of your stance by chance?

Also try bringing the tab up from 100 to 85 on surf side

I don't have any pictures.
I have tried several tab configurations.
0-0-75 at 11 mph has worked the best for me. Not sure why. I'm not a great surfer but on other boats I have done much better than behind my NXT22.
Was looking for other peoples configurations to see if there is something I could be missing.

I've ridden a stock NXT 22 a ton. Try slowing down to 10.6 maybe? Pictures of your stance may help as well

2017 NXT22 Wakesurf tips

Agree slow down. Also if you want a steeper wave lower your tab setting. We run as low as 35 on our star. Know it's a different boat but for us 35=wall (short) 100=flat (beginners and kids) 60=our favorite. We ride from 10.6 to 11, 10.7 10.8 normally.

Also, too much weight in front=no push.

For bigger guys I make sure to have a 2:1 back:front ratio. All in back will push novices into the back of the boat even at 100 tab.

Different boats are different.

Might try moving toes closer to edge, toward the wake.

I run about 10.8 with tab at 65 and around 5-10 on center tab. I also added 800 LBs of Pop Sacs as I normally only have a small crew of 2-4.

SteveO - Where do you place the extra ballast?
Do you keep the weight evenly distributed?
