Seeing just how far back I can get (reaching the limit):

Looks like the Columbia River. Where are you riding?

Secret spot. Okay, on the John Day about a mile upstream of the confluence with the Columbia.

Now here's the Col on a freakishly flat day last Sept:

I'll have some more pics for you hopefully this week Some pics I post show how good the X25 is and some don't. We have two custom Walker Project Bomb Pops arriving Monday and we are excited to try them out. Also have a few custom Soulcrafts coming as well to try out.

With all the talk of X30's surfing I'm surprised we still haven't seen one properly setup showing the surf wake. Curious to see the real story on the X10 surf wake too. I know the 25 with the deep V Hull is awesome and I know the 45 is great too. I'm not sure the 30/10 can be better.

You have a 30 right? If so, what speed are you pulling at? I'm thinking of adding a 900lb sac to my rear locker so it should look similar to your wave, which looks good I might add.

I'm going to surf Actions X30 next week. I'll be sure to get some pics and video. It will be the deciding factor on whether I choose a X10, X30, or X25 for my next boat. I'm LOVING the looks of the 10 with the power tower!

Yes, i have the 30 too Specter

I pull people up with big set a 12 then back it down to as slow as 9.6 for the smaller people and up to 11 for the bigger people. I find if I left the Big at 10.4 or 10.6 the cruise takes over before the wake is formed and then it takes longer to form it up. It always depends on the amount of people in the boat but the wake is awesome with my 750 fat sack. Goofy gets even better just from the extra cooler weight and driver

I'll get pictures of my 30 with no people but driver and surfer and a 750 fat sack and I think you'll see what it's capable of.

Still tweaking the wake as I haven't had enough time yet to perfect it

Power tower is the only way to go

You need to ride behind a properly weighted 25 too. I think that would sway your decision as well.

We have a place on the Columbia / Lake Entiat. We love the river---glass days / mornings are unbeatable anywhere!
