Reverse Not Just for Girls
I was riding for a good while yesterday. It was a beautiful day and much needed after all the rain we have been getting lately. There was some pretty serious chop with a lot of boats and ski's out and a good wind. I caught the most air I have ever been able to get. Someone watching said I got about 5 feet completely out of the water. It felt like even more. I am still getting used to manuvering the ski's and pushing the limits but I'm getting pretting good at it. The SLX 780 is awesome. I did a tight turn on it at full throttle. I remember spinning and catching air. The next thing I realize is that I am going backwards. What the hell did I do? I just sat there for a bit with a really confused look on my face. The only thing I can see is that the nose may have dove under and somewhow I shot out backwards. What's some other new tricks I can try?

Youch, that's scary. I've heard of guys breaking their wrists when they hit a wave like that.

I did not tell you this and I am sure it is not good for stuff but......
Run about 15 mph and pull up the reverse bucket, the nose will dive underwater, then push the lever down. you will do a nice foutian out the back of the ski.

Now remember this it takes some pratice and varing the speed and hand/balance cordnation, but it is a blast. I raced a guy on a RXP vs the Honda and he whooped my a@@. But because I finished with a quick stop he was amazed on how fast the honda stopped. If he only knew what I did!!!!!!!
