2003 X2 - Ballast for slalom skiing

Can anyone give me some help with my X2 ballast set up for slalom skiing. I skied the boat for the first time Sunday, and the wake is very hard and troughs much worse than excepted. I am the weight in the nose, and maybe the center ballast.

Thanks

Andrew

Throw about 200-300lbs as far forward in the nose as u can

Also what prop is currently on there. Believe it or not that make a huge difference on the wake at ski speeds

Currently, I have the 14x14 on. I was thinking about buying a 13.5x16 or even a 13.5X17

Any thoughts?
