Correction to my first statement - completely filling your front ballast will give you a slightly shorter wave with a longer pocket.

agree. i am looking to build a extra "surf" teak platform this fall, just trying to find some brackets for a good price.

Another 400lbs on the port seat and kgb+front sac filled...

Will post some pics...The wakemakers or waterkis setup is cool but those 400lbs are just small for the rear storage you can definitely go way bigger !
Sounds like a great setup. I don't know if there is a difference in the size of the rear compartments between an '08 and '11. Mine has sort of a shelf in it and I can barely close the compartment when the 455 is full. I can't imagine getting anything bigger in there. Would like to see some pics of your setup and wave. Do you have your enzo plumbed in or are you using a tsunami pump?

Well those X2 sacs (specs are dimensions: 32 x 18 x 20 weight: 455 lbs. / 206 kg) are filling like 50-60% of the space in my 08' X2 so that's why i snagged a enzo sac...Couldn't take pics today but will ASAP

My enzo is plumbed (so was the stock X2 sac) but it's so big I have to fill it with the tsunami at the same time to complete

specs of the enzo sac...body- 30 x 25 x 26 arm- 72 x 25 x 12 weight: 1450 lbs. / 658 kg.

really fits perfect in rear storage and portside seat !

So, the compartments are different. That explains it. In mine there also isn't any room for the arm of the enzo sac to come out of the rear compartment. I talked to someone on my lake that has an '09 or '10 X2 who has a custom sac like I was talking about. When I am done playing around with different weight configurations I think I'm going to get the custom sac and plumb it in, but leave an adaptor for a tsunami also. Thanks for the idea.

Haven't been able to get pics with all the weight I've been using but this is with right surf tab down. kgb and port tank filled -650#-, X2 sac -455#, 250# surfside, 250# bow. Total 1605. Will post pics of using 2275# when work and weather cooperate.

I experimented with the wake plate position last weekend and found with my current set up (posted earlier) and 4 adults in the boat, 50% down lengthens the pocket a bit and there is still plenty of push. 100% down the pocket gets a bit longer yet, but you need to work it a little, but still very surfable....

9.6 mph. In the 2300# range I think I may have to bump it up a bit to keep it that clean. It was also a pretty calm day with very few other boats so that really helps in keeping the wake clean.

Well, we mostly ride in smooth water and it's not as clean as yours, I can't get such a clear wake right at the beginning of the platform as it cuts in the wake, wake is shorter and washy at the top...really drives me mad sometimes when I try to recover and that damn wake is washing into my feet and slowing me to death !! :-)
