need more help with surf wake on x25

ok after reading a few post I tried a few extra bags this weekend, we ended up running a 450 bag in rear locker and a 750 bag in center center. the wake was way big but still had alot a wash at top.
We then started playing with the center tab, we found that running the center tab down around 20 to 25%. the wake ended up with a ton of push and a long pocket.
But we still had wash at the top, any ideas what I might be doing wrong.

What was your speed?

Wakeplate needs to be between 35% - 55%

What ballast tanks did you have filled up?

How many people are typically in the boat?

Woon, I did read over the hole post, to many peeps with diff ideas, your wake looks perfect but your post is kind of hard to figure out what your actually running where.

900lbs back port locker (750 Sac and lead), 850lbs under the port seat, 300-400lbs under the Starboard bow seat, factory port full, factory kgb full. 2600-2800 is what we run plus people and there's only usually 4 of us out there in the boat.

Or we could just drop my stars and stripes on your gunwale and call it a day. No, that wouldn't be enough weight.

2800 lbs just to surf seems like a lot of work filling up all those bags. How is the wave with just the factory plus the 750?
