Nice. Love my X-15's surf wake. The bags will make a big difference.

It has great shape all around. Good round swell in front and push all the way to the curl. Now we're just working on making it bigger in every aspect. Basically its proportions seem perfect to me.

We tested our new (new to us) 09 X15's surf wake over the weekend. Same set up, port full, KGB full, 7ppl on boat. Shape of wake was good over 10.5 (I'll take pics this week when we head back up on Wednesday). Only problem was being able to ride the wake without holding on to the rope. I cannot seem to find a sweet spot that will allow me to cruse the wake. No issue doing snaps and driving up and down the wake, however I cannot do it with out the rope. I've tried pumping up and down the wake, but my skill with pumping is beginner. I pulled a rider yesterday that was pulled the day before on someones malibu (no idea what kind, but I do know it was a 2013) and they let go of the rope and rode for a long time with no problem. The surfer was new and had no idea why she was able to ride the malibu w/out rope, while she was not able to ride my X15 w/out rope.

Like I said, my inability to ride without the rope maybe my inexperience. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Im not real sure, one day last year our wake just "clicked". It took me a while to go ropeless but now im able to cut all the way back to the curl. Typically with 6, 7, or 8 people everyone is in the back corner at 10.8mph (never less). Once we get upwards of eight i start putting people in the bow and run 11-11.2mph to lengthen the wave. Make sure the trim tab is all the way up. Also i try to tune the wave before anyone gets on the board (although you will lose the weight of one person). And make sure the water is deep enough. I feel like im forgetting something here. Gotta love mondays.

I will add that i weigh 175 and ride a phase 5 daniello pro carbon with a 2" fin. I learned on a hyperlite broadcast 4'8". Real easy to learn on but maxed it out quickly. Two of our surfers are around 220 or so and one is able to cut ropeless some and one is just starting to ride ropeless. Im able to ride and cut until my legs just give out (all over the wave). So i dunno, id say youll be like me and one day the light will just come on.

I am hoping my now straightened shaft and strut will help with our wave. Yours looks great.

Cool - I hope the light will come on soon and I'll be ear to ear smiles. I'm 195 lbs, riding a loaner LF fish, 5'3". I am seriously considering pulling the trigger on a Inland Surfer Tako board - looks sweet and not too expensive.

I will increase the speed next time I go out and ride. That may make a big difference.
