Can I hurt my 2006 GPR by jumping it?
I have been getting a bit of air lately. Quite a bit.

Just make sure you get off the throttle before you are out of the water. the worst thing you can do to your crank is unload it and reload it up very quickly while staying on the throttle. Thats how some people snap their cranks. Just let off the trigger when your about to hit the top of the wave and stay off of it until the ski is totaly settled back into the water.

-You can hurt yourself pretty easy. I'd suggest some side lifter wedges for your feet.
-Tail landings is prefered to minimize impact damage to the hull...and it better be deep or you will make mincemeat of your pump area.
-The stock plastic turn nozzle needs to be replaced before you break it off.
-If you are ocean jumping, keep a good bilge running at all times, and carry a paddle in the ski, along with a rope and hopefully a friend. Nothing worse than seeing a ski, sitting up on the rocks.
-If you are jumping boat wakes, then you really consider other boaters. NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING pisses off the other lake users than "Boat-Tics." I've seen guns on the lake in Az. That would be harmful to a ski for sure!

[quote=Hydrotoys;267872]Read the warning note in yellow. It's THAT important. Folks have broken ankles before...but nothing holds you in your wells better than wedges.
well they sound a laugh ...
