Ď06 X2 w/GSA Great Starboard wave, Poor Port

2006 X2 with GSA running stock ballast piggybacked to 820s in the rear, horseshoe in the nose and an additional 400 in the port ski locker.

The starboard wave is fantastic with size, push and cleanliness...the port side, sucks!

Suggestions???

TIA!!

Thats almost the same setup as I had but I ran more rear weight bias. Try letting some ballast out of the horseshoe. Lead in the rear may help as well. I always had to reduce the dial on the controller a few clicks to the left.

For some reason port was always a little harder to dial in than starboard. Keep experimenting and youíll get a great wave.

what is the tab deployment angle? sounds like it may be to much. and yes more weight to the back. I have a 07 x2 and both sides are really good.

I have an 07 X2 with the ronix wedge, piggyback in the lockers (750ís) and the front horse shoe (750), just so you know my setup.

I see a way better result when I weigh the boat to one side. The side we are surfing is full to the max, the other side is 75%ish.
Port had an additional 400lb bag in the cooler seat. For some boats it might be true, but the whole weigh your boat evenly seems to be more of a marketing play.

Keep experimenting!

I was gonna say the same thing, I usually bias the surf side with extra weight to get better wave, depending on conditions, anywhere from 200lbs to 500lbs. I run close to 5k total tho

Ditto. List it to surf side a little at least. I have the opposite problem with gsa on x25 I can get an awesome clean wave regular side but struggle goofy side. Adding more weight this year to a total of 4K. Would love to be able to stay even weighted to be able to try transfers this year.

hm...I'm only running 750 fac sacs over factory tanks plus standard KGB and either side seems to surf the same to me. But I'm only the driver, I don't surf but no complaints yet. but then again, no one is allowed to complain on my boat. Which is partly why I love how loud the engine is! can't hear sh!t!

Iíll check it out and compare it to the other side. Any idea what your angle is?

sent you a pm earlier. you might check with ryan with gsa but I believe it was something like 9-13 was optimal. first time mine was at 18 and wake was crap.

I will, Thank you!
The wave is so good on the SB side it encourages me to practice on that side
