Thread: RRRuff Ride!

RRRuff Ride!I went out today and the water was a little choppy and so was the ride.. sometimes I would hit the water and it would almost seem like the hull was gonna break and it would hurt my feet, legs, arms.. eveything. It would jar my whole body standing up or sitting down.. How can I get a smoother ride?

only way for a smoother ride woud be to get a deeper v hull or gain about 150 lbs to make the ski heavyer to push water away better..
the flatter the hull the harsher the re-entry .. ..
sponsons will agrivate this even more as they add to the flatter hull surface .
a ride plate that is flat will do this also..IMT a plate that is designed more like the watercross or the shredmaster (those with steps) will give you some additional hull depth but will slow your speed...

well I know that the ski needs a good wax on the bottom... Could thats be a cause to the roughness?

Well the water wasnt real bad just a slight chop.. I would say maybe a foot breaks if that. and the most of the time that we rode that day was me and my girlfriend crusing around 30.
