    Adding Additional Mirrors To 2008 RXT

    Has anyone mounted additional mirrors to a SeaDoo? I have a 2008 RXT and have found that it is very difficult to use the stock mirrors to see my son wakeboard behind the SeaDoo. I was thinking about adding some additional strap on or bolt on mirrors.
    Any advice is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I believe you need another person on your ski to watch the wakeboarder/skier. Should check your state regs. I'm from MA and we can't tow anyone behind any ski

    I rode through brisbane at night with the turbo's what an experience riding in a moonlit river with a group of friends
    And regarding additional mirror.
    A little ccd camera under rear grab handle and a 4inch bright lcd screeen with a shroud helps towing alot. This can be tied up to your handlebars on suctioned cup to hood

    Towing a toy is a reason for a three seater. Driver, spotter sitting turned around watching the tow and the toy rider.

    Exactly...and for the spotter to be the flag person as well. Sounds like he needs to add another person instead of adding mirrors. lol

    Need Mirror Advice Not Alternatives

    Yes, it is obvious that a spotter is the optimal solution, and we do usually have a spotter, however nothing substitutes driver's eyes on to see when to pull starboard or port. Anyone out there ever actually pulled a wakeboard? Even when having a spotter.... mirrors that would actually cover a wider field of view would be much better than stock.
    So enough of your LOLs and Needing to check state laws, would appreciate some serious replys.
    Thanks!

    in Aussie land you can only tow on a 3 seater .... you could try some elcheapo plastic fold away mirrors with convex lenses and fit them to your handle bars , take them off when not needed...

    seriously, a fish eye lens camera gives you a wide view.. hooked up to a LCD screen on your handle bars!!!!!
    If i had the final item to finish off my turbo (wake pole) the ski would be complete
