    Question for any wave jumpers

    Hey guys, I currently own 07 gpr with just couple bolt ons. GPS'd 66.4 but the other day got WAXED by an RXP with someone riding on the back. Needless to say I wasn't too happy. My question is, how are RXP's at wavejumping? GPR is sick and handles like a champ. I'm thinking about trading in my GPR for RXP but wanted to hear some feedback from people who already own one. thanks

    Ive had mine in the air quite a few times..they will fly but with the right waves and right speed any ski will fly....They are a little harder to move around in the air than a GPR but i wouldnt trade my RXP for a GPR at all..Its like anything..youll learn how to make her fly

    Talk to HOSS on here he has his RXP set up for wave jumping

    Wave jumping set up? What does that entail?

    Pump wedges and prop pitches..I "think" HOSS acually put 2 pump wedges in his but i could be mistaking..Pitching your prop or putting in the right prop to give you that burst off the wave..you dont want to run a big prop wave jumping you want something thats gonna give you hole shot not top end

    they are sick at wave jumping, trim all the way up and nail it at the top of a wave and you are sailing..

    TOP SPEED does not = the best wave jumper..... The best ski I have ever ridden for wave jumping has to be a waveblaster 1 or superjet

    My HX was way better for wave jumping than the RXP. It was narrow, so when you landed, it would sink into the water and absorb the shock. The shock absorber on the seat doesn't hurt either. . .

    I was about to add that the HX's rocked too for wave jumping.

    I knew a guy in FLA who has a blaster with a 1200 motor in it. it is a sick wave jumper.

    I have seen other ski's that are much more nimble in the air than the RXP. But I live down here in South Florida and when there are tropical storms or any kind of disturbances in the area we get some sick waves.. Sometimes as big as 15ft...The RXP is safe and quick in all the waves...Jumping is no problem if you have big enough of waves...The RXP lands smooth as long as you come down tail first...Give the ski a little gas and it will fly through the air...I have had no problems with my ski as regards to jumping waves...Enjoy
