    mine only tips when I ride two up. Even then it only tips when the passanger holds on instead of jumping into the water. They pull the ski over.

    No way! just stay on the throttle and pull thru the turn.

    PMart.... you need to get on your RXP man.. wherever it it, whatever lake house, whatever state... just go get it and ride it now... lol. u know ur dying to get on it. it's extremely stable... you won't flip it riding by yourself really. as mentioned, riding 2 up is when it MIGHT flip, but only if you hold onto it instead of letting go when it's starting to tip, which really only happens at low speeds

    as long as she ain't takin on water it's fine... it's not easy for these skis to take on water in their stock form... you can really mess around with it good and do some serious wave jumping in the ocean and not see a drop of water in the hull... if you are suspicious, always best to turn the ski off, take the seat off and take a peak and see if you see any water collecting. You might see a LITTLE water, usually towards the back, but as long as you're not staring at a couple inches of water you are ok.
