2012 vxr nose diving?
I was fooling around with my two sons on the back of me on Saturday. Doing circles and tight turns ( the normal lol), while in the tight turns and when coming out of them the noes goes under water and a huge wall of water comes over dash. Do most skis do this? Or is it Yamaha? This is my first ski. When it's just me and my wife (at idle) I notice the water comes up just over the front trim / bumper. Normal?

Yeah, its normal. If you cut hard into circles over and over, it will essentially corkscrew down until you get a big drink of water Also, depends on gas levels. With full tank, you have 100 lbs pressing down on the nose of the ski. If the buzzer is going off, less likely. It will want to hop out of the water on you then in certain situations.

Good info. What about normal riding . How does water get in the front hatch? I've seen it on here somewhere but idk where. Can it be sealed better?

Water gets in the front hatch around the rubber seal on the hatch lid. I go over my front hatch seal with 303 protectant (armour-all would work too) every few months to make sure it stays soft and flexible so it seals as well as it can

Grabbing a hand full of reverse at around 10-15mph has the same effect.

I just remembered when I first got the ski my wife and I were heading out of the Hillsboro inlet in Florida. I was heading out behind a 40-50 ft fishing boat, the nose grabbed the wake funny and we almost got plowed off by a wall of water . I felt like I got hit by a truck
