    Going Vertical

    Are there any tricks for getting a higher vertical angle with an RXP? The lake I ride at has had 2 real good days for getting air but i couldn't get any action shots. I was wondering if there is an easy way to go vertical without huge waves and huge boats.

    what exactly does the wedge do? i always thought it was like being able to trim up two more clicks on VTS. but that cant be true because it supposedly provides gains in top speed on glass and the "perfect" trim is one or two above middle, not all the way up.

    the wedge "trims" the angle of the venturi nozzle... the VTS on the ski only trims the steering nozzle up and down.

    add a wedge on the venturi, trim the steering nozzle all the way up, and prop the ski for low end and she'll stand right up if u get as far back on the ski as possible and nail the throttle.

    Yep

    That works great. Put feet back to angled pads and let her dance. If you 're good with the throttle you can skate her upright and rock her back and fourth. Place more weight on either foot and put outside foot up rail and you can give her a good spin. My buddies like to watch me dance with the boat- she seems to like it.

    put a buddy on the back and have him hold on the grab rail and put his feet on where it says seadoo on the back mat. then tail him to lean back and you lean back and give it spurts of gas you can put it straight up in the air. this is an attention getter we do this up and down the beach and people are like how is he doing that.
