Oj 522. Going to try the 5 blade soon. 3000-3300rpm is pretty normal with 2500lbs of ballast. 5 blade should lower the surf rpm 400ish rpm

I'm interested in the Phase 5 Danielo Pro. What size is it? Wonder how much to ship to TN.

i'm dialing in my x25 as well. i fill the port tank, 450lbs in the rear locker, 650 lbs in the port bench seat extending under the back seat, and starboard surf tab down 100%. i adjust the speed depending on the # of people in the boat to minimize the white wash at the lip.
it's not a massive wake compared to some of my friends who drop 2200+lbs of ballast but it doesnt take long to fill up, the wake is talk, pretty long, and we have lots of fun.

Nice. It takes over 2600lbs in our X25 to make it really good but it's worth the few extra minutes to set it up. We have two Tsunami pumps do it doesn't take too long now. We started surfing early May with only stock ballast and 355lbs in the back locker. We've added more and more weight it's gotten better and better. I think we have it where we want it now. Just took 2650lbs or something

Added these vids in another thread too:


Video 1

Video 2. She didn't lose it at the end of the video, she saved it but my buddy cut the clip so the clips weren't too long.

http://youtu.be/yd4dQVK4GQA?hd=1

Video 3. This is my buddy Mike. He's 220lbs. I took him once last week and he made a few hits and today was his second time ever surfing. He's hooked on wake surfing to say the least. He was so stoked to ride all over wireless.

I noticed you were riding goofy........ but goofy riders tend to ride the starboard/ driver's wake which can be totally different on some boats due to the prop rotation. They can be touchy to dial in some cases. That's why Centurion still offers a left or right hand rotation on their surf boats. It has a total different shape on some models. Wondering if that's the case on the 25. The 03-11 star was like that. The x2 also has a diff wake starboard to port.

That's my buddy Lance surfing goofy in the pics. I ride normal on the port side. We have surfed the starboard side as well and the wake was still really good. Not identical to the port side but still very good. That was when we didn't have as much weight as we do now and I would assume now with the amount of weight we can load the boat with the starboard side would be even better than how we had it before. OJ 5 blade is on. We will see how it affects everything this week.

The pics I first posted of the surf wake are no where near how we have it now.

Mike and Angies first tandem run! My four son just turned 4 and stood on the surf board for the first time today in the water almost on his own. Just needed some help balancing

great pics. just had a super sac r installed last friday. it makes it so much easier to fill and drain my ballast sacs. you can put your sacs where you want hook up your hose and fill. you can fill and drain while your moving. even though i've had it a short time, so far so good. its allowed me to maximize my surfin time and minimize my fill/drain times.
