    How to drive the Ultra 250X in rough water

    I am a pretty new driver ( I have totally 15 hours) and when driving my 250X I get very wet when I drive in rough water. How should I drive it most effectively and "dry"?

    Is it more dry the faster you drive or what?

    Thanks

    Get some lifter wedges fitted to the footwells and learn to ride standing up MX style. If your going to put in some serious off shore time and speed get a set of tbm bars. M2c.

    Yep, the 250 is a wet ride. I was amazed at the difference between it and my old STX riding offshore.

    put a 1deg wedge in it stand up and of course in rough water you will get wet no matter what ski you are on...

    How does the 1* compare to the 2* wedge in the rough? I tried the 2* but I absolutely hated it in the rough . I felt like I was constantly fighting the ski to keep the hull down (6'00" 165lbs rider). Should I give the 1* a shot?

    Just buy the tbm off shore plate gives a little lift and is great in the rough no wedge needed
