    I have lost two hood deflectors this season jumping waves. Anyone else had this problem? I am looking for a way to securely fasten the third one without duct tape and a ton of silicone around it. lol

    I am also shopping for a replacement hood deflector in any color if someone has

    Part # 269501888 yellow
    269501663 black
    269501737 red

    Wow that sucks.
    I've done my share of wave jumping and haven't lost anything yet...
    I've had to tighten my pump bolts but that's it...

    You were not ready for that wave. Hopefully you where a helmet when you wave jump. One bad bump and your losing teeth.

    Mine broke of my 2010 at about 9 hours. Went through wave instead of over it and the water got under it and ripped it off. I then proceeded to hit me in the head and then fall into the ocean never to be found again. I left It off for a long time. Finally bought a new one since I don’t wave jump that one any more.

    Did your helmet or head hit it? doesnt look like the wave forced it off.

    My head didn't hit the hood. Both times I broke the hood it was directly because the top of the wave curled on top of the ski.

    Use some sikaflex on the tabs holding the hood.
