I got a chance to play around with an X26 for an afternoon. The stock wave was pretty decent but putting more weight in made it into a monster.

I am not sure what the factory settings are on the surf tabs, and I don't remember exactly what we ended up at for our settings, but I know that we took some tab out of it - i.e. stock had surf tab deployed 40% and we went down to 25 or 30%. Also - no center tab unless you are surfing goofy side, and then, just enough to clean up the wave.

after riding it stock, we put an #1,100 bag on the floor, just in front of the rear seat - which really pumped up the wave. I would venture to say one of the better waves I have ever ridden.

We then added a #750, which really didn't make much difference, even moving it around a bunch.

Based on my experience, I would suggest adding weight to the rear half of the cockpit, or try adding a couple hundred pounds to the very rear of the boat - as far back as you can get it, and see what that does - I didn't try that, but the X23 likes that a lot and this boat seemed to respond very similarly.

I assume a 1100 lb bag laying in the floor as far back as you can get it

Go lead if you can get away with always having the extra weight. Takes up so much less space.
