Ballast for X45p

Anyone have any recos on what size/type of extra ballast to put in rear lockers of X45? Just starting to get into surfing and want to make sure I get the correct stuff. Also - any recos on fill levels? Thanks a ton.

I am running two 750's in the rear lockers and then Ihave the two 250's under the front two seats. I very rarely fill the 750s full because I have the Closed cooling system so the strainer and engine coolant are in the rear lockers. they recommend 400's but I can fit 750's. Some people are running the 1100's back there but im not sure how they fit those in there. Call wakemakers, they helped me get everything that i need and explained everything to me..

Here's what I do...

Wakeboarding - 550s in the rear lockers, 550 bags in the front filled as much as you can and still close the bow seats (likely ~300), 1100 bag on the floor in the center of the boat over the plug area, stock ballast full. This makes for a truly huge wake.

Surf - Port stock ballast full. KGB 1/2 full. 550 in port rear locker, 550 on port seat above cooler.

I run stock on the side we are surfing along with an 1100 in the rear locker. The KGB and a 500lb sac either up front or 1/2 depending how many people we have..
