We rode tonight and it was about 54-55. Nothing a wetsuit can't take care of. Not another boat on the lake, pure glass.

K, I understand the surf tabs are not needed to surf the X30. Anyone have surf tabs and able to switch sides on the fly to match malibu's Surf Gate? Not saying i would ride both sides all the time but would be bonus to switch it up on the fly. Probably would have to sacrifice wake size due to balance of ballast system.

I hit the water on Saturday, was glad i did, realized how much i missed that feeling. Plus I tested two new surf boards and am pumped for the season. Cold but bearable.

After owning a 2012 X45 with surf tabs, I would say that they have little to no effect on the surf wave. At the most they slightly affect the shape, but would not make any difference on the fly to switch the wave from one side to the other...based on my experience...

The bow on the 30 isn't lacking for space. We spend about 60-70% surfing and couldn't be happier.

I have 1100's in the rear lockers that work well. Under bench 400's and 750's seem to be not needed once a few people are on board.

That said, The Woons has posted one of the best summaries with photos to back it up on this comparison.

Test them both under the scenarios you'll be using them...go with a 6.0 or higher, if anything for the better fuel mileage and resale.
