okay help with wake. big but not clean. here is what i am running. port ballast along with fly high x2 ballast bag full (roughly 600 lbs). 1000 lb "L" shaped surf bag on top of seats. 400 lbs bag where ice chest is. kgb full along with 280 lbs of pop products under port front seat and 400 lb bag on top of front port seat. boat is a 07 x2 without attitude plate.

appears to me by looking that the teak platform is tearing into the wake. some have said they get a clean wake without modifying the platform. pic from yesterday of girlfriend.

That's alot of weight you got going, which should help. What's your speed? I run alot less weight than that and I clean a big clean wake. My platform is submerge about 5", but it doesn't really interfere.

I think a wake plate really helps clean up the wake.

Wow. I thought I was running a lot of weight. I have a fiberglass platform and surf tabs so I'm not sure how much of an affect that has on how clean the wake is. I saw someone asked about your speed so I assume you have tried speeding up or slowing down. I run around 9.6 mph but I also see some people run as fast as 12 mph. I like to spread out my bow weight more evenly also. I know that makes the wave longer but (I may be wrong) I also think getting more surface area deeper may help make it cleaner. If nothing else works I think I would start over. I started with port, kgb and X2 sac. Then added tube sac partially filled then completely. Then I added partially filled sac on bow floor (400#) then partially filled sac on seat (400#) in port corner. I spent a day on the lake by myself testing it each time I added weight and at different speeds and it beat the hell out of being at work.

thanks for the ideas. i might run some weight in the rear starboard and see if it helps clean the wake up.

You have a lot of weight in a lot of places... Adding anything on the opposite side of the surf side will not help. My swim platform does dig into the wake, but the effect is way before the surfable or sweet spot of the wake. For the X2, here is what I run and the wake is great.

Port or Starboard (depending on surf side) - Stock plus 400# overflow full

KGB - Full

If we have enough people 2- 4 (surf side) add 350# in the walkway - This will lengthen the wake, also if you have 4, put one person in the bow surf side. Sans people, put the 350# on or under seats surf side.

Speed 10.2 to 10.4

thanks for the help mattscraft. i might just try to put the 400 lb bag i run under the cooler in the front on the floor in the bow. usually it's just two of us a driver and rider.

did your dealer find you a replacement touareg?
