    Ck out 'splash guards' at jettrim.com and hydroturf.com.
    Hopefully would be cheaper shipping than that ebay add.
    And yes, they do work quite well.

    Have Jim's performance cut your ride plate. This will get the nose of the ski up some and lessen the splash coming back from the front of the ski. And you will gain 2-3 mpn in speed also. Best bang for your $ Tommy Jordan

    there's no fun if not getting wet, that's the nature of this sport.

    I didn't think about it at all at first. But then after making my Bimini trip I came to the conclusion that if you're not getting wet, you're doing it wrong.

    Getting soaked is exactly the reason a PWC is better than any boat
