Good information all the way around here. I find the X10 throws a better wake, but that is just my opinion. You will need to sink more of the hull than just factory set up.

Some board socks are reinforced in the tail area for fins. The reinforcement also serves as a pocket sometimes for vests (rash guards, not pfds). Most socks are really designed for surfboards not...

WakeDirt, irony, sarcasm, and patronizing speech. I think we covered it all.

Tige RZ1 and Mastercraft X-10s throw some of the best wakes in the that size range. The G21 is really good as well, a little less tested, and takes more weight.
