Sitdown? A blaster is hardly a sitdown. Did you know there's a subforum on X-H2O for blasters?
Nice looking blaster btw. Mods?

I know its barely a sit down... but some people were giving me trouble on the x even though there is a sub-furum for blasters there. It has oil block off- mixed gas conversion, aftermarket waterbox (not sure what kind), solas impeller, Ocean pro rideplate, some type of scoop intake grate, oceanpro pump cone, ocean pro vortex flame arrestor, a aftermarket top end (dont know type), dakine foot straps, factory B pipe, maybe others but i havent took the head off yet
heres a pic of the engine.

Nice setup in that blaster. Is it a recent purchase for you?
BTW, looks like some fun riding there on Lake Michigan.

Nice! Ive always thought a stand up would be cool but a bit of a pain. Looking at yours makes me thing it would be a nice in between a standup and sitdown

I just bought this ski, i sold my kawasaki x2.
yeah the lake was a blast! when i first got there my girl and I rode out of the port to be greeted by 6ft rollers... it was tuff to ride with 2! we turned arround and went back so i could drop her off. she took the videos
Pierowman- it is the happy medium for sure! I have owned and ridden many stand up skis, they are fun and all but you get so damn tierd on those things and cant really relax. I also dont care for how your feet are so close together or tight in general in the trays of a stand up. The blaster and the X2 are great skis becasue it gives you the feel of a 4 wheeler stance, you can rest when you need to, and you can take hot chicks.

^^^Yea, you can only take hot chicks. The big ones cant stay on. haha.
Well that was a good buy man. Whoever built that knew what they were doing because its got some nice mods. I'm a blaster guy myself, I hate to call it a sitdown although it does have a seat.

Blaster 1's are awesome. We just sold our big bore in that same color a few months ago. I almost always sit down when riding it. Does take skill to board though, which can be a good thing. I almost thought yours was our old one, but ours had a white seat, and a stock waterbox. Did have a factory mod pipe though. Have fun, Lake Michigan is perfect place to play with a Blaster, we took ours up several times.
