    Stand up ski for my teen...

    My 14 year old son has been riding my wife's Yamaha FX for the last year and we are looking at putting him into his own ski. We are tossing around the idea of a stand up. I am looking for a simple, stock ski that he can have fun on without raping the water. What are some budget conscious options? I'd like to stay under $2000 for a good running ski.

    I would try to find him a clean early 90's 650 Superjet or Kawi 650sx. Both are great for the beginner and easily modded later.

    My vote is for the JS550.... lots of em around, dirt cheap, safe, easy to work on, lots of available parts, convert it with a bigger engine later. Can't go wrong with a 550.
