    Spark drift videos

    I just thought I would start a thread on having maximum fun on my spark. This one I am playing around going straight ahead while at off angles and leaning. Then seeing how far I can drift at 30 to 45 degree angles and go into sideslides. The sponsons have to come off to do long slides easily. At the end is how to park a nonibr spark at the dock.
    Enjoy

    What......I saw no swimmers in that video?

    Please refrain from insulting people who are contributing to this forum. Stirring up make-believe trouble helps no one. Thanks!

    Isn't that what YouTube is all about ?
    He is wearing a helmet.
    That proves he's smarter than most people on YouTube.

    I picked up on this sliding right away aswell! I instantly started trying to get maximum slide distance out. I have my sponsons on and have easily slid as far as you are on my 3 up. Try moving further back or further forward where your standing it makes a huge difference.

    Nahhhh. Kids are to busy these days playing "stupid human tricks" like lighting themselves on fire and chemically burning themselves.

    Its all about experimenting. I had a lot of fun with my old polaris with a more rounded hull . I found the spark could do nearly the same but the ridges on the bottom and sponsons really hampered getting loose easily. Its just a matter of practice. My wife has ibr on her 2 up but I left her sponsons on because she just rides straight . I was able to slide hers but it was hit or miss on the outcome. I would be interested to see the effects of the hull extension . We are seeing more sparks lately but no 3 ups to mess with. When in a slide keep the bars straight so the otas system doesnt give any thrust .
