Which boat??? 2012 X-30 OR X-25

Thinking seriously about ordering a new boat. Primary usage will be wakesurfing and just cruising with family and
friends. I currently have an 08 X-2 which has been ok up until now but its not that great for wakesurfing, just ok. I had my mind set on the X-25 until I just saw the new X-30 on the website and the few videos that are in circulation. Now im really confused.....Thoughts????

There hasn't been a lot of info on the surf wake on the new X30, but I'm guess it would be better then the X25.

Do you ski or wakeboard? If you ski, X-30. If you wakeboard, X-25. I have not surfed an X-30, but the X-25 is decent. However, the X-25 I have surfed was not as impressive as the Centurions or Malibus I have surfed. But keep in mind I am a novice surfer at best.

X-30 surf wake looks like it will be hard to beat

That's pretty nice for just 700 lbs of ballast.

With so little information on the X30 out there I would test drive them both thoroughly before making a decision. It's going to be hard to beat the ride of a 25, but it's no sportscar when it comes to handling, whereas they're pitching that as a strongpoint of the 30. It's also going to be hard to beat the stock wakeboard wake of the 25. 30 will probably be easier to trailer. I think the price difference is going to be significant too.

Plus, you can fork pickles with one, whereas the other would be point(less)

That's just what I've been told by 'williamstown' - he had a star which is within 50lbs of the 30's dry weight and he moved to a 25 and said that noticeably didn't trailer as well.
