    Looking to buy a ski

    Hello everyone!

    I hope this is a good spot to post this.

    I am in the market for my first ski, however, I have ridden plenty before.

    My problem is, I don't know which ones to look at..

    It seems like the top 3 (in no order) are

    1) Sea doo
    2) Yamaha
    3) Kawasaki

    I just need a good starting point.

    Here are some details that could help, I hope.

    1) I will be riding mostly ocean (Long Island, N.Y)
    2) I would like to take out and jump waves
    3) Take the family out
    4) Reliability

    Those are my top concerns, my price (after haggling) will probably be around the 13K spot. I'm looking to buy brand new.

    If anyone could help me out, or just lead me in some direction, that would be great!

    Thank You

    P.S: If any Long Island users here, what are some good dealerships to look at?

    The brand won't matter, all three will satisfy your wants/needs. Buy whatever you can get the best deal on.

    Assuming you have this, how much did you pay out the door? Also, what did you get with it?

    I'm looking for prices as to what people paid for as well.

    Thanks!

    You won't get an
    Rxp-x or T for 13k
    Kawasaki Uktra for 13k
    Yam fzr/fzs
    Unless your buying a left over model. The 2015's will run you higher then budget with no trailer
