I've got an Outback V with the factory Gravity III ballast. I'm hoping to do some ballast upgrades in order to make everything quicker. I'd also like to add enough ballast to the lockers that I can avoid loss of seating with external bags (feel like it may be inevitable in the front of the boat).

General question: What setup are people using to surf?

Has anyone upgraded their ballast with the Wakemakers two way pumps? Are these significantly faster?

Any help would be great...I'm mechanically inclined but also new to boating so breaking it down to a serious level and mocking me is totally acceptable!
