I have always wanted a Malibu or X series and am ready to make the change. Love my 24Ve and the other Tige's I have had over the years. I saw the X-55 and fell in love with all the room.
There is a X-55 for sale nearby that I went on a demo ride this weekend. The owner did not seem to know how to set the boat up for different activities and could not show me a clean wakeskate wake (18mph) or even really a decent surf wake. It has ballast at each rear corner and one in the center but he said none up front? It also has a Left, Center and Right wake plate so lots of options for setup, as well as addition ballast could easily be added in.
We only wakeskate and surf with a rare wakeboard run each summer.
Can anyone share what they know about the wake of the X-55, especially can you get a clean wake at around 18mph? What about the Surf wake?
I have done a few hours of research and find conflicting information. Several posts were saying bigger boats are not good for surfing?
