I just bought a 2011 gti 130.... I use it for tow surfing. It handles really bad in the surf. It is really hard to get it to turn on a dime especially with the life sled and person on back. If you try to whip it around and do a 180 to head out through the surf it wants to track straight towards the beach. I compared the hull to a yamaha fx HO (which works perfectly).... The hulls are very similar except the sponsons are almost a foot longer on the sea doo... I need the ski to be able to steer towards the beach then whip around quickly to head out through the waves.

Has anyone had this problem? Can you take the sponsons off? switch sides? Cut them short? aftermarket sponsons?
