X80 surf wave.

I have been reading posts for the last year at team talk.
Hoping to find help setting up a 2006 X80 twin MCX350 for surfing.
Not much out here so I set out on my own to work it out.
Installed a Stargazer PP added 2 850 sumos under back seats plus Factory ballast of 500 lb.
Using trim tabs to list boat a little no wake shaper.
Thought I would share what were doing and let others know this boat ROCKS.
I understand its not a Pro's wave but for a family out to have some weekend fun it's pretty damn good. May add another bag in ski locker to lengthen wave some or some other trick for a little more push. Ideas are welcome

Looks good. A wake shaper would probably clean up that lip for you.

Here is crashcourse316ís X80 wakesurf wake. Iím not sure all what we did that day, with bags. Maybe he will chime in. Or Roman, they were his bags. lets just say we had a lot of weight in the boat lol.

You definitely need a wake shaper too.

Yea, A like 2700lbs + 4 people that day....10,000 lb mass in the water. Only thing we still need to work out is the early curl on the wake. But other than that the wake is good.



Nitro: Do you have the twin engine on that one? cant tell for sure but i don't see much of an early curl like I have with mine.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ALS O SEAL YOUR SKI PYLON HOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it's a 4' hole straight to the bilge. you could sink that whole boat in a matter of a few seconds if that thing flips up on you.

Yes twin mcx
That wake is better than mine. Pylon hole not even close to water yet. Just to top of swim deck. But will be sealing that up before we go much further.

Interesting how you don't seem to have the early curl. We were speculating whether or not it was a feature in the hull that was doing it, or tab interference. Im going to try to convine him to seal it up with some foam and tape next time. There are some interesting hull features under the boat. I think they need to be plugged up, atleast in the name of science

Definitely seal that port Crashcourse is talking about. You can flood that area with no ballast at the right speed. I thought he was bs'ing but I saw it with my own eyes. Stupid design.


Those photos of us was about 2000lbs all in one corner I think. with the mission delt
The other day we did evenly weighted with 2500ish lbs and the mission delta and it was just as good I think.

My ballast bags are under seats. May add a couple 500# lbs beside engines under cover. I won't have any on floor to trip over.

Whats your swim platform look like nitro...I have the giant oversize Teak inlay one.


"trim tabs twisted"
one up one down full i assume? works well enough to get surfing. But my issue is at all speeds and all weights so far I get an early curl. if you are not getting it with what you have right there then I'm goin to start investigate Hull design change from 05-06. Do you have the Big Step hull ?




MS paint skills.
