13 Xstar surf wake

I have been hearing that the 13 Xstar throws a really good surf wake when properly weighted. I was just curious if anyone has been in one to see it or surfed it. Also if you have surfed it how much weight is it taking to get the wave good? thanks

Yes, very happy with my surf wake. Took some time to figure out, only because it likes the weight a bit different than most. These shots are with stock ballast full, 500lbs in the port locker, and 500 in the coffin. Driver and 1 spotter. Adding ballast to the non surf side, will make the wave less steep. I really like a steep wave though. I wish I had more pics, but we are not a very photogenic bunch. My buddies have more, and I need to have them send me them.








Air 180 attempt. Finally landed this just a few weeks ago. Must have tried it 1000 times. Hard to pull off without falling over forward, as you can see. I know it looks bad, but it was maybe attempt #10 at this point



This is a shot of the wake with only stock ballast full, and 750 in the coffin. As you can see, it is not as steep as I ride. Also, Rina is just learning, so we didn't fill the locker sacks. That being said, the less that you offset the rear weight, the less steep the wave will be.





P.S.- This boat may not have the cleanest surf wake in the world, but it has the most push of any boat I have ridden. I am 170lbs, and that is a 4'2" custom I am riding...... A board designed for like 120lbs or less.

Your SIG shows you have an X25..but these PICs are an X-Star ? right? you have both Boats ? or Access to Both? ..either way..you are lucky..and the Wave looks good

For all the chatter on here that the Star doesn't throw a good surf wake, it looks pretty good to me. Of course, there are better wakes, but that's twice the size of my 205V Star surf wake and we surf that no problem. I definitely don't agree that the Star is only good for wakeboarding, I'd love to have that surf wave.

The last gen Star had a horrible surf wake, IMO. Have a couple buddies with them, and I found they were finiky and getting a good, consistent wake was beyond a pain in the butt.
