Change your weight set up.
I was a huge dis-believer in the Xstar surf wake, but after getting some suggestions from the Brothers Heaney I've seen a good port surf wake.
Get rid of all the stock ballast and just load the port side locker. We were surfing an 07 Xstar with just a 500lb sack in the back at about 11mph and the wake was big.
See if that gives you a bigger sweet spot.
And try a bigger board.

I will third the bigger board suggestion. I would suggest an Inland Surfer Blue for your size. I weigh 175 and switched to that board from a Hyperlite Coex and it made a night and day difference in my surfing, particularly the ability to stay in the pocket. I have an IS Red and Yellow as well, but even the bigger riders tend to prefer the Blue over the Red as it is more manuverable.

What is the difference between the red and the blue inland surfer. Who has the best price on them. Thanks for all the help.

the difference between the blue lake and the red tide. the red is more for real big people or real small wave. the blue is faster surf style. if you just want to cruise surf style the blue is good but if you want to do tricks you'll want a different board. the loogey is better but walker and walzer are best in my opinion.

empty all the stock ballast( no rear and no center) and just load the rear locker with sacs. The stock ballast is in the wrong place, too far forward.
We surfed an 08 Xstar last week with the port locker full of sacs and no other ballast except people.
It works.
