Can swim platform interfere with wake for surfing?

Trying to figure out the wake setup on my X2 06'. It seems no matter what I do the wake is short and foamy. I'm thinking whether it could be the swim platform breaking the wake

A setup I initially head filled port ballast and extra 1,000 lb sack in the very angle of the compartment. Two passengers in the boat. With this setup the left side of the platform would be submerged. Tried speeds from 9.5 - 13 MPH, filling up KGB ballast, trying different types/length boards. It's always tension on the rope for me. See the attached images.

Any recommendations?
Thx.

Try turning your hips more square with the wave, you have your hips turned out. Move your front foot more towards the edge of your pad. Put weight on your front foot to go forward and weight on back foot to move back. I would try for 10 mph for a start, once you think you are in the pocket drop the rope and use your weight on the front and back foot to move you around. That will get you started.

You have plenty of wave to get started

Do you have a center attitude plate? We found this key in cleaning up the wake in the X2. The X2 also needs a lot of extra ballast.

Here is a photo of our wake, after installing the attitude plate.

Yes, I was thinking that it should be enough wait for to get me started. You mean my hips should be perpendicular with the wake? Do I need to try toe edging on the board? It seems to me I tried all of that. I tried to move so much forward so my right (back) foot would be off the pad. It's always tension on the rope, no sag at all.

I also tried to surf with Moomba and I was OK.

We are not able get the starboard side is not as clean as the port...

For ballast we use:
455# in locker
1100#L shape sac on seat

Not true for my experience. Many have surfed behind mine (and others) stock ballast 2007 X2 easily and all day long. It just has a short pocket with stock ballast. I've added 455lb sack to the rear surf side locker and it helps .......
