    Anyone have videos of skis going through the chop/rough water?

    There is a lot of talk about what skis are good in the chop and what are not. I'm hoping we can show some examples of videos of skis going through rough water to get an idea what everyone is talking about.

    I'll start. This is me on my Yamaha VXS running WOT through some relatively small lake chop. I only shot the video initially to see if the GoPro suction mount could hang on to the ski in these conditions and it did. This isn't what I would consider really rough water by any means, but its the only video I've got at this point. Here's the video:



    Got any others to show various hulls going through rough water?

    Everything rattles at that speed through the chop Could be the lanyard for the GoPro that I have in case the suction gives up.

    Where did you put the washers?
