Ballasts for 92 prostar 205

Newbie here. I just bought my first boat and MC a couple of weeks ago and I am thinking about putting some sacks in it. I would like to be able to surf and wakeboard. Any suggestions for weight (max and min), placement, brand, and type on a 92 prostar 205. What are main concerns when adding ballasts? I just want to cover all my bases.

surf...you won't be happy. I have '95 205... I run 2 370 lb sacs along sides of dog house and 200 lbs in front of dog house... makes enough wake to do inversions...with no problem...

wake is nice for beginners to intermediate...

more weight then that you would need to consider a different prop...plus I would not want to stress the boat with too much weight to surf.

1 - not sure what brand...got it used..

I just thought I would add to this. I have a 1998 Prostar 205 and I am running a 900 pound on the floor where the back seat goes and 1 each 540 pounds on either side of the motor and my surf enhancer on the platform. I get almost a waist high wave.
