Wakeshaper 06-07 x2

Looking for info on adding a suction cup wake shaper to my 2006 X2.
Currently the decals seem to be in the way, is there another mounting location.?

I will be honest with you.. i have tried a wake shaper (the bobv), and it can help but i still can't get enough push. I added another 500lb ballast bag, still not enough. I am somewhat convinced the 2006 X2 just isn't going to surf as well as newer boats. The X2 is a wakeboard boat to me. Surfing is something we do but with the rope. There are times when i can get slack in the rope, but just not enough push to drop. There may be others here who have the perfect setup, but even with a shaper and more weight i am just not able to get enough.

I have an 07 x2 so very similar to this post's 06. While the bob5 does help the x2 won't ever deliver monster wakes like you see on newer boats. However, the board you ride makes a tremendous difference, especially adult men. I am 205ish and my first board, could not get to point of letting rope go, others, lighter people, could. After reading I found a second board to try and almost immediately I was getting push to release rope. Those same other people, on the new board, make it look like we have a monster wave, and we only surf a handful of times over the summer.

Read board reviews, try the wake shaper, you should be able to get plenty good enough wake. Good luck.

What board did you find that worked? i have a few boards and they are all the same on my wave. From inland surfer to hyperlite. Curious to see what you have found that works. I am 205 lbs as well and normally ride the hyperlite broadcast.

Several of my friends have 07 X2's and we can surf it stock. We added 450lb bags and made it better, it is a very surfable wake, just not a huge wake.

my second board that I mentioned is a Ronix Carbon Thruster, not sure if the "carbon" is meaningful or not, and our improvement with this particular board is even with a sun induced bubble on the bottom of the board that makes it look like quasimoto a bit.
My first board, for reference, was a typical "fish" style with the pointy tails.

Also - length of board may make a difference at 205, i went with the 5' on both

07 X2 here, no issues what so ever surfing and I'm 225. I ride both an IS Blue Lake and a Phase 5 Model X. Went out Friday morning and surfed with my BIL who is about 190 and nephew who is 75 lbs so not much rider weight in the boat. My set up was/is KGB full, surf side rear full and a 450 bag on the surf side, speed set at 9.8 mph. We surfed both sides of the boat. Not as good as it is with another 2 or more people but very surf-able and was able to hit a 360 and ride away. I can't see how your boat would be any different than mine however I have had mixed results adding more weight where the wake actually got worse. I'd try my set up and see if that doesn't work for you then experiment from there.
