rxt-x 2012 thrown off
Hey. are there any others that have experienced. Being thrown off the personal watercraft on small/medium waves with RXT-X 2012. feels like sponsons on one side digs into the wave and flips the PWC. has happened 3 times. the last flip ended yesterday with a broken femoral neck and a pretty black eye have never experienced it on the RXT-X 2009 I have.

WOW, never heard of this......I would inspect the intake grate, pump area bolts, iBr integrity, sponson bolts, etc. Something is out of rigging.
BTW, I flew F-16's in 1984 all over Norway for 2 months......absolutely one of the most beautiful country's in the world!!!!!!!

Does this look like a similar ejection to yours?

From what I understand, Stroker is saying his ride took the first wave, then hit the second at an angle, and the nose of his ride deflected to one side.
His weight continued to carry him forward as the nose of his ride was deflected, which caused the hull to dig in more, throwing him off. While he flew through the air, his ride continued to roll until it was upside down.
Had something similar happen to me once. Popped up and turned in time to see the bars nearly touching the water. It didn't turn completely over though. Hurt like hell.
Wish you a speedy recovery!

I've been thrown off my fair share of times.....I must say though, that it is strange that the ski flipped over. Have you inspected the pump to make sure it's tight against the hull? Any Cavitation? Loose sponson?
