    Looking into purchasing my first stand up!

    I've always wanted a stand up ski and figured I would look into buying a cheap one. I found this one on my local areas Craigslist: cleveland.craigslist.org/boa/4413559724.html

    I talked to the guy and I'm going to look at it Friday. Is there anything I should test or look at besides compression? It's stock everything, no modifications.

    Is this known as a reliable model, because that's definitely the most important thing here. I wouldn't be spending much but wouldn't want to have major problems with it because I don't want to deal with that.
    I don't care about speed or anything, just want whatever model stand up I buy to be reliable.

    Thanks for any help!

    Those don't have enough power at all, you would be very unhappy. See if you can find a superjet.

    You will have a difficult time trying to ride a 300 best to get a 650+

    I wish I had the budget for a nice superjet but I don't. Im just looking for a cheap stand up to ride around.

    I know nothing about stand ups so ok good to know. The same guy is selling a bunch of different ones too. Here's the links.

    Wow yes that would be nice. Should I look elsewhere then? I'm sure more people will be lookin to dump their old stand ups on Craigslist as summer gets closer.

    I would wait a little while myself, I'm not terribly far from you (missouri) and ya those prices are a little high... If it were me I would wait a little closer to summer time and see what shows up.... There are better deals to be had IMO

    Don't buy a 300. You will not have enough power to enjoy yourself on the wakes. Wait for a 650sx or 750sx.
