(IM POSTING THIS HERE ALSO CAUSE KAWASAKI MAKES A STANDUP!)
i have a smaller lake.. and overr the winter i plan to work hard and earn the funds for a new ride.. after thinking for it for a while i decided on a standup. Im 17 and still limber so why not hurt myself now=P
if so what should i look at? what brand and such? yamaha or hydrosport s4, or kawasaki??? whats the difference in all of them? what am i paying more for in one and not getting in the other?
what matters to me is its going to have guts! has power! good for getting air off those huge wakes the wake boats make here!
so i guess it has to be light..
whats the best one would you vote? (i also want new)
i know there is a huge price difference.. from like the hydrospace to the yamaha?? http://www.hydrospace-usa.net/
whats easyer to maintain and cheeper to keep running?? whats more of a fun ride?
i own a 96 spx and what i love about it is getting air, im not afriad or falling off donig something stupid. im not afreaid of doing something stupid=P full speed and turning as hard as i can and see if i can hold on=P
i know i cant do that on something like a rxp..

Hey holmes, standup rydas be representin ya know. Aight if you want a freestyle ski I'd go for a superjet. If you want a easier to ryde ski go for a Kawasaki. If you want to talk to people who know lots about standups go to www.pwctoday.com and don't listen to eheir hate on couches, well listen to some of it.....but in my opinion you either gotta ryde standups or have insanely modded sitdowns, or ryde in the surf. Anything else is just got crackaz and hoes. Anyway I love my superjet it's a '91 squarenose cause I'm poor but lemme tell you, it is amazingly fun. In any case check out www.pwctoday.com

Ok you work at EBgames so saving will probably take a while. You need to just go buy a standup right now and enjoy it. Buy a roundnose superjet (like 95 or later, maybe it's 96 I can't remember...getting late). Then upgrade it. Or buy one that's already tricked out. Just buy one and enjoy it, trust me you don't need the best right now to start off on. I used to always think that but with a standup they are all sooo f*ckin fun. Just go buy one and ryde it you will be soo happy.
