x30 wakeboard wake

im looking into possibly getting a new boat. we surf 90% of time. but i have a 9yr old that loves to wakeboard. im curious to know how slow you can go and have a nice clean wake behind the x30 for kids boarding??

looking at a 2014 x30 if that makes a difference

Maybe 501s can chime in. He seems to have the X30 wakeboard wake down.

If you watch the mastercraft video for the x30 (not sure what year the video is for) is says it is a great boat to slow down and let the kids learn with.

You can use the center tab to clean the wake up. Only issue is at slow speed the wake is very wide.

Actually everything that has been written is accurate. The X30 wakeboard wake is a nice and mellow transition that is great for everyone from beginner to advanced. At 16-17 the wake can be clean and well shaped, but as mentioned it's a little on the wider side. Adding ballast grows the wake to a serious size. The wake is best with most of the weight in the rear. What's really great is you can have 3000lbs of ballast and still run at 20Mph and the wake is still clean. I find for advances riders the wake is perfect around 22.2-22.5, plate all the way up.

I will post some pics when I'm at my desktop. I have young kids and we also run a wakeboard school and the wake has been great for riders of all ages, sizes and abilities.

The 1st pic is just stock ballast going about 21MPH. The rest are with around 3k+, so heavily ballasted.

This boat is severely under valued as a wakeboard boat. Beauty wakes!

16-17mph, if you only fill the kgb tank, and leave the rears empty. I am currently working with a beginner on our weeknight program.... I couldn't believe I could tow her at 16mph with both sides clean. It was a little weight sensitive, and we moved a person or two, but still very easy at very low speeds.
