    Question Lifter Wedges.

    I used the search engine to learn about Lifter Wedges. I know what they look like, I know how to fit them, I know they help keep your feet still in the rough stuff,tight turns etc. but my question is do they help when you jump a wave and if you get more air than you planned therefore the ski drops fast and leaves you in the air still holding the handlebars then landing on the side of the deck hurting your leg. Can they help or is there another mod that might help?

    Are you talking about shaping the back side that sticks to the side of the deck to fit the curve of the deck or the front side where your feet go? maybe to fit your feet.

    the bottom will run parallel to the deck as its straight you need to tapper the top off to match the top edge of the hull you cut it with a blade then sand the edges nice and round.
