    How is he able to turn around (actually rotate) like that?

    That's the Ride technology, that's the only reason I bought the 2015 and didn't go for the left over 2014 models. Could have saved some major dough but I wanted to be one of the 1st to have a Yamaha with this capability. I know Sea Doo has had it for a while but I wasn't interested in Sea Doo.

    That looks great for when you go down the wrong marsh trail and hit a dead end

    You can pretty much still do that with the reverse lever , you just got to practice.

    Yes, I am doing it, juggling between Neutral and Reverse to slow down when accessing the trailer or the dock - its not easy...
    So on my model the reverse lever is lowering the bucket down,
    With this new Ride system its lowered using an electric power?

    Great to see these technologies being implemented on new skis. Just a thought by what was said in video did the Yamaha use brake & accelerator to slow down quicker as opposed to just the brake on the seadoo

    The new left hand throttle is the brake and the reverse. Pull it and the reverse bucket goes down electrically. It will slow you down and if you continue to use it it acts as a reverse throttle. it will also act as a neutral if you just tap it and let go of both throttles. Use it while steering and you can back the ski into tight places or any number of maneuvers that really were practically possible before. It's said that you can also use the left throttle (Ride control) while making high speed turns as well, it's supposed to allow for more precise turns or something along those lines. I'm new to the sport, this is my 1st ski and I only have 10 hrs on it so far so I haven't started doing these complicated high speed maneuvers yet. I was a bit worried about reliability with the new technology at first but it really does seem like Yamaha tested this thing pretty well and got all the bugs worked out before they released it. The Ride system works like a dream and makes maneuvering simple.
