Best salt water surf boat?

What is the best boat for being able to take a wave and still use it to surf? Ive heard the x35ss can handle rough water? I live on cape cod and would like to be able to shoot over to the vineyard and know if I encounter some chop it will be ok.

I would think X55. Heard good things about the X25 too.

What about one of the CSX series boats? I know the interior is not the same, as the CSX is set up as a center console, but it's the same hull as the...X55? XStar? Not sure which hull exactly (saw it around here somewhere), but anyway, the boat was designed around salt water- comes with the SS engine, all stainless hardware, T-Top has a built in tow point, etc.

X25 hull was created from the CSX 220 which is a DD boat. The CSX 265 is also a DD boat but the hull was unique to it as far as I know. Both would fit the bill for the use described. Not sure what the surf wake is on the 265. The CSX 220 had such a good wake that the developed the X25 from it.

The X35 apparently has the largest dead rise of any Mastercraft boat. I am sure it would handle anything that you'd take a 20' RIB in (except surf breaks of course). The self bailers on the saltwater series handle any water in the cabin. The big issue is - do you really want to swamp your boat with saltwater? I'd pick the right day to head offshore. My X-2 has been through some heavy chop - and it's tiny compared to the X-35. I just keep the speed down and close up the walk through door and windscreen.
