FZS/FZR Wave Jumping
Hello Yamaha Addicts,
I've snuck over here from the Kawi section to ask a couple of questions about the FZR/FZS. I'm looking at picking up an FZR/FZS in the next couple of months
How are these boats holding up to wave jumping? While I have the STX-R for jumping, I'm worried that if I'm riding an FZS and a "fully sic set comes rolling in" I wont be able to help myself
How do they hold up to some big landings? Has anyone broken anything (hull, engine or pump/steering)? How do they feel hitting a good wave, in comparision to a GPR (or STX-R if anyone has ridden one and happy to admit it).
Finally, post up some pics or video of some jumps if you have them.

and mate i have seen you in action my friend would let you ride my ski any time but no one in HELL WOULD I LET YOU JUMP WAVES your a mad man lol.
maybe some can post some photos of them jumping the FZR/FSR .
have seen a photo of a ski that had damage form down under but im pretty sure this ski bottom out in shollow water my self as it did some damage on the rear of the ski as well as the side damage.
too me it looked like it just hit the sand or some thing solid.

hahaha, nar I wouldn't even dream of jumping your ski. Besides, If I pulled the trigger going up a wave who knows where I'd land.. probably in another state.
I'm looking at ordering an FZS in a couple of weeks (while the dollar is strong). I'd keep in mostly stock... like yours hahahahaha.
Can't wait for Nelson Bay

Surely you can get more air on an FZR or FZS than I can on my whale of a SHO. But it's going to depend on the rider. This isn't even on teh ocean. Just off a yacht wake in the muddy Mississippi.
