Good day to you all. I was fortunate to get my hands on a 2011 VLX. I ordered it with the Monsoon 350 with a high altitude prop as we are 2000m above sea level. We are using if for wakeboarding, skating and surfing. It has the bow ballast, midship(centre) ballast and rear ballast. Also has the hydrolic plate. I just received it last week and was hoping I could get some advice from you guys ito correct/additional ballast placement to get optimium wake.

I took it out on the weekend and the wake was good with all the ballast full. But I did not use the wakeplate at all. To what degree should I lower the plate to increase the height of the wake. Will it also increase the steepness? Previously I had an X1 which was alot steeper. We are running between 22-24mph on a 75-90 ft line.

On the surfing side, the X1 wake was super easy to get dialled. Although I did not mess around too much with all the options of the VLX I did not get any sort of surf wake what so ever. Very crumbly with no pocket at all. Do any of you guys surf behind your VLX's, and if so please fill me in as to how your weight your boat to get that ultimate shape.

Thanks for your time and advice.
Kyle
