2012 X15 Extra Ballast

Is there a particular brand/model of a fat sac that fits in the rear locker of a 2012 X15?

Also any suggestions for the right config/amount of additional ballast to add for wakeboarding and/or wakesurfing?

We use the 400# v-drive bags from Fly High, originally spec'd for the X-2, but work great for our '08 X-15. One in each locker (plumbed in) plus two on the floor, sometimes one in the walk through, depending on how many passengers. That is just for my son to ride. He rides 21-23 with that ballast. Nobody else in our crew needs more than factory.

Times two on the v-drive bags in the lockers. Also use the 750 from fly high in the walkway. This with the 950 stock in the 12' provides a sick wakeboarding wake. For surfing, we move the bag from the starboard locker to the port side seat in the rear corner. Provides a nice swell there with good push.

My experience has been adding weight to the boat 60/40 and the wake just gets bigger and stays clean. I run 400s in the rear and 500 in the bow over stock. With 8 people in the boat on top of that its super fun!

For surf, I run port side full, KGB full, port side bow 200 sac full, and a 400 tube sac on the seats. Makes for a fun wave, hope to dial it in more this summer.

I had some v drive sacs in the back, and a 750 in the front. With the vdrive sacs in the back, front weight is an absolute must. Without them, the boat porpoises and the pp paddle wheel comes out of the water.

Surfing wise, I have no advice for you. No matter how. Much I added it sucked. Lol

+1 on this. I've ridden bikenskijerm's setup and it produces a great wave for surfing. I've also knocked myself out wakeboarding behind his sac'd out wakeboard setup.
