    Question about pro opas block offs

    So right now I have the Riva OPAS block offs. Just the ones that cover the openings but do not extend the hull. I have noticed lately that when I am making a speed run that sometimes when I get to the superman position it will start porposing. The water will be glass but it will porpose when I lay down in the superman position. If i am sitting on it it will be ok and not porpose. But if I lay down in superman it will porpose. It wont do it everytime but probabley everyother time. So are the riva pro block offs or RE block offs suppose to eliminate this? I hope so because when your laying down on that set bounceing at 70+ your nuts take a real beating. So do these help this prob?

    blockoffs

    The ones pictured look just like the riva racing blockoffs. Cant be for sure though. I had the normal blockoffs, then sold them for the proseries. Great handling upgrade. Cant say it changed the porposing. Do you have the wedge? What trim position you set at?

    Currently running the Riva Pro opas deletes on my ski. Every great once and a while I'll get a second or two of porposing, but it's been virtually non existent since the block off install. The handling is definately better IMO. The added bonus of no more man parts/seat conflicts while performing speed runs is nice too.
