Looking for a new boat

I have a 2011 X2 that I love and plan on using for one more season then probably getting something different. We mostly wakeboard but I would like something that sets up easily for surfing and surfs well. We will probably do a bit more surfing since we have a couple of crew members with repaired ACL's, but will still primarily wakeboard. I want all built in ballast. I don't want to have to fill any extra sacs. Would also like something with a mellow transition on the wakeboard wake and good low speed wake. Considering 3 boats:
1. NXT 22, a little bigger than current boat, I would order and be able to pick everything I wanted.
2. X20. I've been on a couple of these and obviously they surf great and I liked the wakeboard wake as well. I loved the ease of switching to surfing and the rear facing seat. Would consider new but also used with at least a 6.0.
3. X30. I've crawled through a few of these but have never ridden one. Supposed to do everything pretty well. I'd go 2014-2016 with at least a 6.0. I love all the room and storage and rear facing seat.
I'm going to demo all 3 this summer but looking for some thoughts/opinions from people who have ridden these boats. Thanks.

If you are looking for mellow transition and low speed wake then x30 over x20. I am just the opposite and like more of a steep wakeboard wake so the x20 is my choice. I don't have much experience with the nxt22 so I can't give you any insight there. All are fine boats that fit different preferences and styles. I will say my loaded x2 rode more like a 20 than a 30 but we always had 3k in ballast in my x2.

We have the NXT22 and it is great boat and has the surf package with built in ballast. It will surf without additional weight, but for best results you need to add a sac on the surf side storage or have more than 4 people in the boat.

At least that is our results with surfing.

When it is just the four of us.. wife, two daughters and I, we add a 400lb sac in the storage below the seats on the surf side. We surf regular side. Probably wouldn't need as much on the goofy side.
