Looking for a new my boat for surfing. Help appreciated.

Hi y'all,

I had a weird day a couple of days ago as I had couple of guys over at my house. One of them a friend and the other guy was my friends friend. They came over to try out wakesurfing behind my hugely listed X45 (3300 lbs on port side)as they both had tried ocean surfing and had fallen in love with the sport. We were out for 2,5 hours and they were all smiles and both went roppless. We started unloading the boat at my house and after it was all done the new guy asked me how much do they owe me for gas. I told them that it is about 65 litres that we probably consumed. After I had said that this guy asks me that do we need to pay for gas if he buys my boat, whaaaaaat? Everything is of course for sale so I told him my price and he shook my hand. The next day we made the contract and he transfered the money...

I thought that this was worth posting here as it was so mind blowing experience that someone just asks this kind of question and then follows through.

As a result I am once again boaters and need a bit of help to choose a boat that is even better for surfing than my big block x45 was. I loved the huge wave of the X45! !!

Is x30 the way to go or X25 or x35 or x46? And which engine is the perfect match for each boat?

Thanks guys in advance...

Right now the X30 seems to be the boat for surfing. I bet it's not easy to find a MC in Scandinavia?

The 2014 Skittles X46 is for sale in Charlotte MC. Since it's used I'm sure it could be imported.

The X30 is the king of MC surf boats right now. If you love the pickle fork, go with the 46.

It is not easy to find a mc or any wakeboard boat in Scandinavia or even from entire europe. There are some here, but like one x30 that was just posted online had color scheme that I like, but terrible options, like the crappiest Tower in the mc line up with bungy cord board racks and no gen 2 system no big screen etc etc, small engine etc etc....

You may want to hold out for the X-23 or X-28 as from what I hear they will be the larger version of the X-20 SURF BOAT.

If you can't wait that long my dealer ranked the 2014 line-up for surfing as follows:
1 - X10
2 - X30
3 - X25
4 - X46
5 - X2

He said there is not much difference between the X10 and X30, but the X10 is smaller and has the same amount of ballast. All five boats apparently produce an excellent surf wave with Gen2 so you really can't go wrong...

Thanks. This is the first time that I have heard anyone recommending the x10 for surfing. Hard to believe that a smaller boat can ever be better for producing a surf wake than a big boat.

By the way do I need to replace the gen2 bags with larger ballast bags to get that big wave that is better than the X45 wave?

Call me crazy but I am also considering the centurion sv233 and the fx44... wave is supposed to be crazy good, but would like to get first hand opinions how does the x30 compare to say cen sv233 surf wave?

I have heard good things about the surf wave on the Centurion, but I am not sure if you will be happy with finishings of the boat, especially if you are used to a Mastercraft.

With out a doubt X-10 and X-30 hands down
