Welcome that is a nice looking boat!

Girlfriend awkwardly took the pic when I wasn't paying attention. Anyway its an 09' with about 200 hours. Prev owner took good care of it though, hard to tell if from a brand new one. Only real mods are kicker stereo system with sub and 4 tower speakers. Also has a z5 rack which is nice.

Got some good winter projects planned though for next season. Only other pic I have is attached. She is in storage for the winter now so no more for a few months!

Awesome boat! If you need any tips on setting up your XLV for Wake or Surf check my posts or PM me. I really like the colors!

I will do that. Been surfing alot on other boats but not this one. It has G3 Ballast and I have 2 550lb sacs, where should I put them? I've seen alot of different recommendations on here.

Its red top deck with black hull.

Hey Mike, get some more pics up. You don't see too many Red Top Decks, I like it a lot.

XLV is different then the LSV for sure. For surfing, First thing to do is swap the rear bags to 750's, this helps a lot with surfing. I'll be honest, I hate having sacks all over the boat and if you just fill the 750 full on either side, it is all we need to surf all day long. More people in the rear corner help though and if you want to add some sacks, put them on the seating along the side of the boat that you are surfing. We normally leave the front empty or just a little, unless we have more then the 750, then we will fill it 1/4 to 1/2. For speed we usually run at 10.5 and the plate almost all the way down, maybe up about 10-20% (same as for wakeboarding). Don't set the plate all the way up, so the rear of the boat will be as deep as possible. It seems like this would help the surf wave (or Wakeboard Wake) but it doesn't, not on an XLV anyways.
