    Taking the Sponson off?

    I was riding last weekend playing around doing a slide .
    when i got back to shore i started to think about taking the sponsons off .
    Will it still handle good ? Im thinking it would be loose and fun .
    Im not racing the spark . Thanks

    If you're going to be testing just make sure to keep a safe distance from boats, the shore and other obstacles as you might slide all over the place.

    Okay i had my day today to test .
    i have been riding for a long time
    i dont think if you r a new skier you shouldnt take your sponsons off.
    the ski is rideable but slippery or loose i was riding standing up i could pull off some good slides.
    onetime i pulled off a double 360 ,i think it made the spark more fun i dont want to ride it with traction .
    i want to slide jump play spin out
    im a stand up rider
    I look at sitdowns as boring .
    I made my spark today not easy for a new rider but a lot better for me .
    singing slip sliding away in my head
    it didnt wobble from side to side like i thought it would .
    my spark is a 90 hp.i will put the sponsons back on if i have to teach a newbie how to ride
    but for now they r staying off
