X25 Gen 2 Surf Wake

We are still experimenting with our settings, so am wondering what everyone else out there is doing? We are finding our best wake at 10mph, but have seen quite a few posts at much faster speeds. We are only have 10-12 foot depths, so wondering if that is causing us to have to slow down things a bit?

10mph is too slow. That would create a very short surf wake. We go 10.7-11.2 depending who's riding. We had a very dialed in X25 and have an X30 now

TheWoons: What are your surf settings on your X30. Still playing to dial mine in.

In 10-12 feet of water your wave will not be very tall (no matter how much ballast on board). You need to find deeper water to dial in a surf wave. In terms of speed, 10.8 is a good starting point and then tweak it from there.

I don't have Gen 2 on my x25, however from a very reliable source I was told the X25 even with Gen 2 does not do well with the entire even, side to side weighting.

So, I would try list weighting the boat and see how that does. With Gen 1, we run stock plus 600 in the rear over stock, one person on the surf side corner and the wave is money Of course the KGB is full, 25-50% center tab and 11.2 MPH

On my x25 w/ Gen 2 right side surf is great (even with the even weighting) running full rear tanks plus sacks) and running about 10.5 mph with and tabs at 0, 15, 85. Struggling though to get a good consistent left side surf wake. May have to try uneven weighting and draining some of the rear right ballasts as suggested but would love to hear from others who may have dialed this in better without having to go with the uneven weighting.

Hoping to bring this thread back to life. The rain finally took a break and I was able to get the new X-25 in the water for a couple hours this weekend. Gen2 is awesome! The wakes looked pretty good with the factory settings, but I'm certain the wake can get a lot better. Has anyone made adjustments to their setup and reached a better result? I'd prefer to focus on what the OP asked about and that is specifically about the x-25 GEN2 setup. Would love to hear from the guys that have successfully dialed-in their boats without adding sacks beyond the PNP that comes with GEN2.

EarlyriserX9, have you been able to dial in your X25 Gen 2? Thinking about the Retro fit for my 13 X25, don't really switch sides often but a better wave sounds good.

My wave is pretty good but hoping to get it a little deeper and longer with some lead shot bags.
