Flew Off Ski Going 60+!
I was out riding in Lake Marion Saturday. The weather was partly cloudy & the water was real choppy. I finally found some calmer water, so I thought, & nailed it. A few seconds later I hit a rogue wave, flew off the ski & skimmed across the lake for what seemed like friggin forever! All I remember is rolling & skimming but I didn't injure myself at all; I was shocked! A day later & I'm not even sore. I've been tossed many times b/4 but nvr going so fast & not as violently. Guess I was really lucky.
Oh & thanks to my spill I met a great guy & forum mbr, DW250X, & his wife. Dean was kind enough to give me a ride to my ski. It was so far away I couldn't swim fast or hard enough to get to it.
Live Fast & Ride Hard!

You were Lucky this time. Glad you were not injured.
THat was good someone was arround to get you back to your ski.
I departed going over 70 mph and came to imediate stop, no skimming across the water for me. Wasnt pretty.

Congrats on being OK. I saw a guy and a girl do a WOT dismount yesterday (driver didn't fall off) and the girl took about 10 minutes to get on another ski (all girls) and rode away. The guy that fell off took about 30 minutes to get back on the ski and ride away. I was wondering if he was hurt with something like a broken rib or something. Boats were stopping for assistance.

Never came off my RXT, but I know what you mean by the "rogue waves," I hit one of those doing over 60 mph one day and almost lost it. We have these stupid wakeboard boats everywhere out here, I was fishing in a secluded cove, perched on the front of my boat about a month ago and this jackazz plowed his daddy's $40K wakeboard boat (with a boarder in tow) right up in there about 40 feet from where I was fishing, throwing out a 30 inch freaking wake. Yes, we had a few words...
