    If you want a jumper get a 96 XP. the HX is like a street bike a great carver but does not have VTS...its manual.and it doesnt have the 787 but a 720

    +1 You will need to learn to do a side mount if your going to ride in the surf as getting on can be a bear. Not for big people over 200. The 720 is a good engine but you can look around find a 787 conversion for it. It's Like a very light XPL VTS is overrated.

    ... I would agree on heavier ski's... but VTS is very affective on the old XP's & XPL's...(couldn't imagine either one without it) and would have been nice on the HX... along with a 781cc
