    Cool The most Bad Ass Custom Seat on the planet!

    This is the first full size S3/T3 hull custom seat from LD Extreme in Puerto Rico to enter USA.

    To the point, increased rpm 150-200 rpm, my personal best speed ever of 83.9 GPS the first time out, acceleration significantly improved, all on a 75* day with 75* water. Needless to say the SC whistle is very pronounced and sounds wicked. I thought the ET 68-140 was great for acceleration but this seat and its rear air setup takes it to a whole new level. I mean “Hang the F On”!!

    The custom fiberglass seat only weighs about 17 lbs compared to the stock 44 lbs and is very comfortable.

    Glade Rider has done an awesome job fabricating a custom rear air intake for this special project, and deserves a lot of credit!! Well done Steve!! Steve has received the 2nd seat and will test and post his results shortly.

    The seat comes with its own SC to seat air intake setup, which is fine but we wanted a true 4” air setup with the option of filtration. I am paranoid about trashing my ET 68-140 with anything that could fly into the intake, so I installed a filter inside the seat. Glade Rider will post his pics of his setup that has a 90* tube with a filter which keeps offshore wave action out of air flow into the SC. My seat came with a cutout already in place that I modified for the 4” air setup. Steve had his made blank so that he could modify it himself. His design is superior - wait till you see it!

    The bottom line is you can ask for anything you want, customization, custom paint, whatever you can dream up.

    You can order this fine piece of craftsmanship from Alex Holquin, “cobra73” through PM’s or contact him at 407-409-4437. He is our USA representative to the fabricator in Puerto Rico. Shipping to the USA will be around $200 and insured for $1000 or more as desired.

    If you desire rear air for your S3 or T3 hull you can now have it and then some!

    Seat has plenty of air flow. Additional intakes can be added in the rear of the seat.
    Weight 17-18 lbs. Custom paint design and colors are possible. Quality is excellent!

    Original factory seat mounting hardware was modified to allow quick change between the factory seat and this fiberglass seat.

    Rear Air using a solid 4" tube connection. Nut plates were installed in the cross support and in the hull/rear grab bar holes allowing the top air intake plate to be removed without having to access any nuts underneath. Solid tube can be removed as an assembly by removing 1 clamp.

    This allows the ability to quickly change back to the factory seat and front air intake system.

    System can be run with direct line of site from the seat opening to the plate opening.
    Tube extends the air opening forward allowing any water entering the seat to drop out of the air and exit thru the drain holes. With or without filter.

    Rear Air using a short Kana Flex type connection. Kana Flex hose slides over the polished tube tight enough to allow installation/removal without the use of a clamp. Remove 4 bolts in the top plate and 1 clamp on the bottom 90 degree duct and the entire system is out.

    View from inside the 4" air intake tube using a GoPro Camera. Top air intake plate is perfectly aligned with aluminum sealing ring/seal installed in the seat bottom. Seat closed and locked.
