What surfs better...a 1st gen xstar (205v, x2, x1) or 2nd gen?

I know, blasphemy you say. Here's the deal. I love the wakeboard wake on my x1, but I've spent a ton of time behind 2nd gen stars and that is my all time favorite wakeboard wake. Im considering upgrading to a 2nd gen star but... Our primary lake is typically too rough to wakeboard on weekends during the summer. We have to go out on weekday mornings to get good water. So most of the weekends are spent fooling around surfing. My question is, will the 2nd gen xstar be an upgrade or downgrade for surfing? Im not afraid of ballast. We run just shy of 3000lbs surfing and while its not the best surf wake in the world its fun even with just the driver in the boat.

Bud I've never been on a 205v hull. I just know how I set mine up for surfing. And it takes a lot a weight which I'm pretty sure y'all don't care about
I need to try more front weight to try and lengthen the pocket because it's very short


That's full port stock, 750 port locker, 240 on rear seat in corner, 500 under port coffin, and a few girls sitting on that side.



I know you guys aren't a fan of the wake gate set up at all, just wanted to throw a pic out there from it. Full stock ballast 5 people scattered in the boat and the 240 on rear seat with wake gate.

With gate it has WAY more push further back. No joke I can ride 15 feet back with gate..

I'd be more than happy to take y'all out and let ya surf it if you want to make the trip up here!

I've had both 2003 x2 and 2009 xstar. I never really loaded the x2 down and I only have extra 750s in the lockers. My experience is the star had a much bigger and better wave.

The switch to the x-star was a no brainer for us. Better wakeboard wake TONS MORE SPACE and it ended up surfing better too.

The regular side on the star is a bit of an upgrade for sure over the X1 hull. The pocket is longer, you don't have to surf so close to the transom.

However if you are a goofy rider there is no upgrade at all. The goofy side on that Gen 2 pickle style hull is god awful. No upgrade there at all to the x1
