    You have to let off the throttle when you come out of the water or there will be some major problems!

    Wouldn't the rev limiter not let this happen?

    Thats what I thought as well. Banging the limiter isn`t all that healthy but I stay stomped in the rough. With wave jumping I don`t though...I let off in the air.

    Rev limiter

    I think the rev limiter is primarily an electrical device. If you were already revving high and then hit a wave, maybe you could exceed the limiter by mechanical means - a bit like rammin a car in a low gear whilst you are already going fast - no rev limiter will protect against that?
