2011 X15 surf?

Just bought this boat, having a hard time finding the surf pocket. Surf goofey, All stock ballast full gen 1 surf tab down port side, center trim about 10%, boat weighted mostly even with as many as I can get on the surf side (starboard) https://youtu.be/CZbRHJ_lpcM10.8 mph

Thanks for the link, we have no ballast above the hard tanks yet. Been looking into them but been trying to see how the surf was stock. If I read correctly this boat only comes with 890 lbs of stock ballast (via googling specís). Salesman tried telling me it has 1800lbs but I donít believe it

Also wondering where do people normally set there center trim on these boats? Does this trim tab work like Malibuís wedge? I tried putting it at 100% down but the boat seemed really hard to turn!

The center tab adds lift to the stern of the boat (opposite of the wedge) to help you get on plane or clean up a surf wave if you are too heavy in the rear of the boat.

How fast are you going in the video. It looks very fast. Not sure optimal speed on your boat, but I would guess that down around 10.5 mph your wave would peak up and curl creating a surfable pocket.

You will NEED more than stock weight unless you have a dozen large dudes in the boat. Weight (and in the right places), more speed and the surf gate in the right spot and you will be golden. No need for the center tab.
