    Fell off at WOT

    It's all my fault. I was too confident, I owned the lake, I was the man. I thought it couldn't happen to me..not on this ski, on this lake, on this day!




    WRONG! All I can say is ouch! I didn't know you could actually fall off of this beast. I was running WFO in the channel and it was rough...musta hit 2 different wakes back to back. Gone are my favorite Walmart goggles (my last pair) and my Garmin 201 is in need of repair. Talk about takes a lickin'...it hit first and all it did was break the arm band. When I came up the ski was still going. I was disoriented and thought the throttle must be stuck

    I had to hitch a ride from an RXP to get back to it

    I'm gonna feel it in the morning

    At least several people were there to see it

    How many times we gotta ask people. Please post pics....


    Hope your OK. Ive done that a time or two and its no fun. Lucky your walking ok. Hitting water at 60+ hurts.

    I did it a week ago, same way careless and over confident high 50s and hit a wake I never saw till it was there. The first wave knocked me to the side the very next one was sending me off and I just went with it. I still have a bruise on my leg and the lump is still the size of an orange.

    Like I said earlier, I have never ever ever been hit as hard as I was when I first impacted the water.

    Off the right side...must have been unstable from previous wake and just landed wrong like Jason said...just bad timing.

    I hear ya Skip...I wish I had pics..they would be priceless. The only other time I fell off this fast was right after I got my 150 and thought it was the same in the chop as the glass Couldn't lay my head down for a week...

    well hopefully you wont be too sore in the morning . the last time i flew off was in 97 . i was wot on a 97 yamaha 1200 . the defective rear PLASTIC trim tab pulled down and the thing hooked a turn at 60 mph .

    i got a little banged up . i was pissed that yamaha wouldnt admit the plastic tabs on the bottom of the boat was a problem
