Why Sea Doo not run championships offshore?
I see many offshore races, but rarely participates Sea Doo.
These races are full of Kawasaki and some Yamaha.
Sea Doo need to design a hull for rough waters?
There is another reason why Sea Doo does not participate in this type of race?
I think Sea Doo must stop doing horrible designs (For example 2015 models) and new hulls advance and more power to your engine.
What do you think?

Kawasaki - They dominate their way through the chop.
Yamaha - They are fast and easy to make faster.
Seadoo - They make pretty, shiny parts.

horrible design? You do know the only change to the T3/S3 hulls (which dominate CC) were a color change. SeaDoo needs to swap the SC for a turbo that's for sure.
Kawi can't be beat in the nasty. It weighs a ton

Yeah, Seadoo has it's place in the racing industry which is CC, just not Offshore. Yamaha can try to compete with Kawi in offshore and seadoo in CC but will just have to accept 2nd place in either race environment.

For straightline offshore (from A to B) racing, added weight is your friend. The Kawi's are 200lbs heavier and help plant ski and the added weight makes them easier on the rider.
I'd stack up my T3 agains't anyone out in open ocean. I've always called the ocean "the great equalizer"..... It's my favorite place to play!
BTW: Last big group ride I went on there was one guy with a Kawi and he had to strap a gas can to the back of the ski. They are gas hogs!

The kawis are the best hull for rough water. It is the hull design that makes the difference, not weight. it really doesn't weigh all that much more than the competition(Doo lists dry weight and kawi lists curb weight) The rough water hull + bulletproof eaton sc makes for a dominant offshore ski.
stock, a doo is the best handling ski on the market, so you will see more doos in cc racing. the Yamaha is a good straight line ski, so you will see mostly yammis in the hydrodrags. A well set up ski no matter the brand combined with a good rider will be tough to beat in any race type, though. most people pick the ski that gives them the best chance to win.

It seems to me an ugly design (colors)
I have not seen RXP (T3) in open water races
I think it doo should design a specific hull for open sea and choppy waters.May be giving something more support, increasing the power with a bigger turbo and some more rpm.
For some time it is a request of many users Sea Doo.Many of us believe that a specific hull for rough waters is necessary in the catalog of sea doo
Because honestly ..... Be doo from 2-3 years ago is not news to invite renew their models.

Would love to see a seadoo hull for the ocean but until then the Kawi is by far the best!!
