01 X10 ballast sizes? X10 surf setups?

I have an 01 X10 with oem hard tanks in the lockers and a sac in the ski locker. Can someone tell me what size they are?

Also, any other x10 owners want to post their ballast setups for surfing?

I'm running full port ballast, full locker ballast, roughly half full starboard, 540 pounds in the locker and about 250 pounds on the port bow seat. I'll get pics of my wave next time out.

Hey man,
The stock KGB ballast should be 250lbs for each rear locker and 350lbs for the ski locker. Total of 850-900lbs.
With 4ppl or less I run the following ballast for wake boarding;
Stock KGB full.
1 400lbs bag in the bow
1 400lbs bag on the floor in front of the rear bench
1 400lbs bag on the rear bench.
Total of about 2100lbs.

For wake surfing we do the following:
Empty port rear stock tank
Shift the front bag to starboard side
Shift rear bag on bench to starboard side.
This really shift the weight to the drivers side and the boat has a really good lean. 1-2 ppl sitting on the starboard side of the sun pad as well.

We have always gotten a better surf wake on the drivers (starboard) side for some reason so we stuck with it.


For some

When I have a full boat I drop the bag on the rear seat and floor. We still shift the front bag for wake surfing and the ppl of course. And on the rare occasion we will fill a bag halfway on the starboard side. for that little extra...
I should also mention that I have a legit freshwater shower on the starboard side locker. It's an 18gal container filled from a garden hose with a pump in it to wash off the salt water after a run. It could be 60-100lbs extra depending on the water level.this adds a little extra for surfing. We do put out a pretty mean wake. Easily 12ft back from the boat going in a straight line.

We wakeboard at around 21.7-22.5 mph
We wakesurf at 10.7mph

Depending on the Surf choice... Full Locker, and Full Star, then Half Port, then switch it for whom ever... I rarely have more than 2 others besides driver in boat... and they float with the choice.
I will add that I have a Large Cooler That easily is 100lbs at the start of the day.

I am adding 400lbs to the Rear Each Side, and a Bow... this week.
