X-30 Gen 2 surf and wakeboard setup

Okay this is probably a duplicate thread, I know. I tried searching and PMing a few members and got some good info but I would like some other opinions too. I would like to know the following...

1)Gen 2 surf setup for both sides.

2)listed setup for regular (port) wave

3)wakeboard setup for 20 mph intermediate rider


THANKS and just punch me in the head if this topic has been covered ad nauseam.

DocPhil, congrats on the new X30. I am only going to be able to answer questions 1 & 2 as we did not wakeboard enough to add any value there.

We put 160hrs on our 2014 with Gen2 last year and we enjoyed every second of it. You will have a great year on that boat. We took many of the guys from the local MC dealer on ours last year and they thought it was dialed in.

Here is how we set ours up for surfing both sides:

-Fill all factory Gen2 hard ballast tanks
-Fill both 750lb fat sacs in the rear lockers
-250lbs of steel shot (lead) in the bow (125lbs per side)
-100lbs of steel shot (lead) in the port side coffin to counter the drivers weight
-50lbs of steel shot (lead) in each rear locker under the 750lb fat sacs
-Speed between 11.1 and 11.5 mph depending on # of people in the boat and wind direction
-100% Gen2 tab deployment on opposite side
-0-15% Attitude adjustment plate depending on # of people on the boat and what type of board we are using, for starboard side only

We tried listing the boat by filling only one side and other ways to list but at the end of the day filling all ballast and pnp bags (along with lead bags) was really the best wave we could produce and move from side to side easy.

The port wave was unreal with the set up above and starboard was very good.
However, if you are really picky about the Starboard side wave emptying about 50% of the port side 750lb rear locker bag will help clean the port side wave up.

I know others have suggested that bow weight is not critical but I am going to tell you that based on my 160 hours in our short summer bow weight is very important in cleaning the wave up and making the pocked significantly longer and better.

I hope this helps. Please report back to us and let us know how it is going. I can send you a few pics of the wave we have if you like, just PM me.

Colbray. Can you please advise your timer settings for the 750's in the back? Fill and empty.

are you able to adjust the PnP timers on the new software without any tools or do you have to have the dealer adjust them?

You can adjust on the screen in the software. Sorry if I am wrong but from my memory I believe I set it as follows:

I set rear fill times at 11:15 for 750 bags. That is with 5 to 10 seconds of steady overflow out the side. Drain time is set at 9:55. I wish I could just go look but I traded it in at the dealer. I will see if I can get the service guys to go look for me
