Question X10 vs X30 Surf, anyone have any experience or vids/pics??

Now that I have made everyone pick X30 colors in my poll thread my bi-polar side wants to know who the X10 compares to the X30 from a surfing standpoint. Boat interior size aside does anyone have any real experience between the two or pics/video to share? I keep hearing it is "as good" or "the best" surfing boat in the line up but cannot for the life of me find any good footage or photos showing weighting etc?

As room isn't a huge factor for us if the surf wakes were comparable I might be prone to look at them for a little savings over the X30. One would think that throwing additional ballast on top of stock along with Gen 2 would produce a nice long wave but I can't find evidence of this?

Opinions or input greatly appreciated!

I cant speak about the Gen2. I'm not sure anyone can here yet. I can tell you I had a new X30 no tabs for a week in Tn 2 summers ago and a new X10 last summer for a week. I liked the X10 but I loved the X30. I have a 1000lb sac that we used in both boats on top of stock. The X30 was great long wave outstanding push/height. The X10 seemed to take longer to get dialed in. We were very frustrated with that boat at first. We used the same setup in both boats. Once we did get the X10 dialed in the wave was not as long. I wish I had Pics of both but that is in Ca. and I am in NY. Hands down I would take the X30 over the X10. Both great boats but I have a feeling the X30 will be a more sought after boat for resale down the road. Just my opinion.

Nobody has any experience I guess aside from Knox test.
My dealer has one, guess we can take a few 750's out and throw them in the back along with stock all full and see what she does?

Here is my surf wave, factory full plus 400 in rear locker and 400 under coffin seat. We had 2 people in the boat 10.6mph and no surf tabs.

Any other pics or video of that one? Would like to see how long the pocket is and so forth.
Also, any AA plate to knock down that wash on the top?
