    Introduction for me and my machine...

    Hi guys,

    Relatively new to the sport. My fist ski was a Kawasaki STXR1200 2004 model which i sold to a forum member in Canberra. Great machine and had no issues but it just was not fast enough!!!

    In December 2011 i purchased a brand new 2012 model Kawasaki Ultra 300x (green) and haven't looked back.

    I have done no mods so fa except for a RIVA exhaust (original water box still in place).

    I mainly put the ski in at Bobbin Head and head out towards Palm Beach and off shore...

    Looking forward to reading about other rider's mods and experience and even catch up with the Aussi crew for some cruises.

    Check out the ski in action on youtube...

    Welcome. Yes the STX-R's were great machines; I do miss mine and those days (from time to time). Very nice videos! In your first one at 2:50 you are hitting some nice swells! There are some other Australian members on the Forum . . . Good mates and a good bunch they are. I am sure they will chime in sooner or later. Ya, that 300 is a little better in the chop than your old STX-R! Again, welcome. JB

    I know a lot of guys ride hard like that, I'm afraid of breaking the hull or motor mounts. They must be tough. If I was racing or training for a race then ya screw the craft and just fix it when it breaks. I'll just watch and enjoy the videos.

    Good ol Broken Bay. Got to love the swell that b!tch whips up at times.

    I went from the STX-R to 300x also. Actually I decided to keep my STX-R for the waves.

    We had about 10 guys on the bay today. The 300x across the bay leaves everything else behind. It's a machine!

    Check out ozpwc.com for some local social rides. I'm out most weekends, normally with a couple of poor people with FZR's and Seadoos.

    PS: don't pay to much attention to no-more-rice; he is always the fastest, rides in the biggest chop, knows the most about engines and never makes a mistake.

    Cheers, Mal
