I would empty starboard totally, trim tab all the way up, and try speeding up little by little until the white wash is gone from the front (closest to boat, not the face) of the wake. Try a person or two towards the front (still on port side) to lengthen the pocket. The trim tab being down will raise the stern some causing wash. If i put mine down at all my wake disappears.

Believe me, I've tried many different set ups and this is what works best for my boat with the load I usually carry. I teak it a bit depending on how many people and load we have.

This is with a full load of fuel also. I always top off when we are going surfing.

I just noticed you were not the OP. Sorry man, thought you (op) were still having problems. Haha.

If you have a nice wake perhaps he should copy your setup though.

I am OP, no problem. I had surf tab down (Have not seen that much difference up or down), factory port tank full, kgb full and fly high port rear piggy back and bow bag which are 455 lbs and bow sac is 690 in a v shape so weight is on both sides of the bow actually. I am wondering if I should pull my starboard bag and get a tsunami pump and mount under glove box to sink the port more? Would rather not add more weight if not needed.

2005 x2 factory ballast on starboard side 500 fly high on starboard side & front ballast full and 3 people seems to surf fine try squaring his body up more with the wake and then What these other guys have suggested also I think the wake you have is ridable just get the technic down first.

I wonder if maybe the bow sac is too heavy and not allowing the boat to "plow" the water enough. It sure makes the wake longer but too much and height disappears. I dunno, never messed with a x2. I would assume my x15 is somewhat similar.

If the bow sac is too heavy it lengthens the wave and reduces the steepness. I run the following for a wave on the port side:

Full hard tanks (starboard,port,KGB)
Full port piggy bag sac 400lbs
Empty starboard piggy back sac
Empty bow sac

Split the people 70/30 to the rear and of course seated on the port side.

Speed between 9.2-9.8mph, into wind, depth greater then 15feet.

Hope that helps.

Yea, i may need a drawing to explain this but ill try. If there is too much weight in the front and not enough in the rear the boat will ride low but it it will be flat. When the boat is plowing at an angle the water will be forced downhill and out the back which will force the water down into a nice rounded hole before it rebounds upwards.

Anyone have any luck pulling a surface 360 with an x 2 yet? I feel i have my x 2 wake as dialed as it can get, made a couple attempts this weekend with no luck, I'm sure it's surfer related opposed to boat/wake related, let's hear what everyone can do behind their x 2!
