They do pretty well with stock plus plug and play (800s in rear). Surfs and wakeboards great that way.

The A24 is big. You will want Fly High 750 Dual Drain Port Fat Sacs, Straight Line 750 Sumo Sacs, or Eight.3 800 Sacs in each of the rear compartments. The new A24 bow sacs should be available soon from both Straight Line and Eight.3. I am guessing another month or two for them to reach port, but they will be worth the wait.

For surfing you will want to weight the boat just like you would for wakeboarding now that you have the surf gate. Try to even out the distribution from stern to bow with a little bias toward the stern as you have a floating wedge instead of the power wedge.

I have also found that having 50 to 100 lbs. of weight in the port side locker will help balance out the wake. We do this by not filling the starboard side sac all of the way or using a Straight Line 900 or Eight.3 1100 in the port side and the Straight Line 750 or Eight.3 800 in the starboard locker if it is plumbed and you don't want to watch it or mess with it.

Do the 1100's fill completely in the back compartments? I'm Trying to decide between them or the 900's.

Great thing about water sacs is that they conform to the space you have.you can probably get 950-1000 out of them... Go for it!

2014 a20 has auto wedge and i have gate as well. see site, i just completed order so a24 probably does if he ordered gate, i hope he ordered auto. was thinking with auto wedge i could count on people load, if so how many, if not how much bag with auto wedge vs people or combination of both. my strength is skate 720 to 900 combo b to f or f to bsurface turn. i hit wake on board as well but haven't incorporated those handle pass moves, a little scared. please criticize my stock 5.7l concept of using stock ballast. i want all the feedback/criticism i can get as i am a wakeboat dummy and have been behind 2011 mastercraft x2 one time only (only stern motor ) other boats with standard old setup and was not invited back to 100000 boat, i guess for lack of skill. teach me teach me about boat setup and pitfalls of small motor or not enough sack. i believe i can surf as i ride flowrider well.

so plug and play 800's, how much and assuming connection in boat already if "plug and Play" also does drop in ice chest go back there and cause any problem with more ballast in rear section

plug and play no matter how slow for me would be so much more convenient and as a 20 footer i lose alot of room to sacs?

is plug and play from factory, if so i guarantee i can get cheap deal from dealer as i stole my a20 including tandem galvanized w/ brakes, autowedge, gate, pylon, only stereo one(will upgrade that later), chillax, drop in chest, pylon, snap in carpet, boat cover, flush kit, depth finder, quick release knobs as i have to lower tower daily at 54 before tax and reg

I'm not really following you 100%, so let's recap.

1. You got a 2014 A20
2. You want to know what sacs to run

It really depends on the prop that you are running to be honest, what prop is on the boat. Getting on plane with 800s AND Wedge is a challenge in the A20. I actually just bought an A20 as well. When we demo'd the boat, we ran 800s in the rear. With them completely full and wedge down we were BARELY getting on plane with cinco prop. We had to throw a person all the way in the very front of the bow to get going. Without the wedge, it was no problem to get on plane. I'll probably run a lttle less ballast and put the wedge down in the future.

In terms of installing the bags, you may have to install some fittings on the hoses and such. You're dealer can probably do it in less than 1 hour, so I would just try and convince them to install them as part of the deal.

Also note, You're going to want the arrow sac in the bow of the boat. If that's not included, I would get it in the budget.

btw, sounds like you got a good deal on a great boat.
