Need advice

I have an o8 x2 with a 450 lb sac on the port side plus the stock tanks. I am debating going with 2 fat bricks for 200.00 310 lbs or a straight line 560 lb tube sac w a pump at a cost of 189.00. Both I can move around and adjust so wanted to get the ballast gurus to advise what they would do with a x2 for surf wake. I only surf and slalom ski so one of my goals is to flatten out the slalom wake. I also have 200 lbs of lead I can move from the ice chest to the underseat of bow.

For surfing I have 2 - 400lb bags along with the OE tanks and that works ok with one on the port side seat and one on the port side front seat and one adult sitting port side.
WIth another 400lbs (2 adults) on the port side seat and that sac moved to the floor the wave is really nice.
Guess I'd opt for the 560 bag on the port side seat and the 450 bag you have up front.
