    Dam I missed the good waves at the weekend

    Ski was out of action so I could not ski but Stephen, Martin and Cameron did. Great fun. Photos by Simone (Shamoany) who is also a great skier.

    Now, would the new Seadoo Spark with the plastic hull withstand this treatment? Only one way to find out!

    We call our little group B.A.D.- Brighton Airborne Division and I guess you can see why! Simone called today B.A.D. Hull Inspection Day

    Awesome pictures! Did the guy with the Yamaha find his Oakley h20s? I can see them flying away. Post some more pics!

    Great pics...

    Jumping three seaters is like jumping an air craft carrier...PROPS. I don't miss jumping my TX260 at all, now that I have the PX260. Looking forward to trying the Spark in the waves since I had an HX back in the day, it will probably be more fun than the TX or the PX in the surf

    Holy smokes. That looks intense. What is the water temperature?

    Will post some more pictures once I get them from Simone the photographer. Sea temp is about 14 deg here at this time of year with an air temp of a deg or two higher. Its the UK so its rarely hot here and the water is always murky looking. The waves on this day were not massive maybe 4 ft so no real height in the jumps, sometimes the rear of the ski is 6ft out of the water with the nose about 18ft high when you are vertical.

    The one thing I have picked up on GH is that the riding we do here in the UK in the sea is very different to what others do. Many of the mods and tweaks the GH'ers do are suited to flat water and do not translate well to our rough waters. We get maybe 10 flat days a year, most of the time its 2ft chop which is no good for jumping or speed.

    The best waves we get are winter storms and spring tides with the wind in the right direction giving a huge swell.

    The biggest I rode was when a tornado was spotted off of Brighton and 7 of us when chasing it 8 ish years ago. Waves were 25ft+ and shit it was scarey. Only 6 of us made it back. Coastguards, helicopters etc. Not a good day. There is a local pier called the Palace (or Brighton) pier. They closed this victorian pier this day as the waves were battering the boards where you walk and sending them skywards. The pier is over 13 meters high when at low tide so that shows the force of the storm.
