    So this makes 3 ground-breaking skis in just a few years. The design kitty has got to be running pretty dry.

    I bet the big 4 are scratching their heads trying to figure out how to match them.

    Ahhh, you got it up there to quick.LOL
    The others aren't even going to come close, they have too many restrictions...at least here in the US.
    They need to start by dumping this hand shake Coast Guard deal.

    I agree, they could all have a 80+ mph ski if they really wanted to........and then they would be cheaper for us

    I think the oem's are taking notice but really volume wise not even 500 s4's were registered last year, hence the problems with the ijsba etc.

    I would see it maybe just like any product, cars, boats, guns there is always going to be some high end stuff for rich guy's and gal's but Honda/Toyota/Small three don't give a rat terd about Ferrari etc. on a production level, not to mention some of the smaller manu. that no one has even heard of.

    This is not the first time someone tried to produce high performance skis like this either there were a few in the 90's that all flopped. The quality is not even close to what it should/could be especially when some failures are on safety items(steering cable etc.) One positive note is that they are using all four strokes so the epa wont bark to loud at them, but from a rider safety standpoint they suck not that it matters to me.

    I digress, as a hobby and a sport I'm just glad they still make ski's at all with all the hoops they have had to jump through to keep it going. I wish all the manufactures made a stand up.

    They are sitting in a warehouse in Raleigh, NC awaiting shipment back out of the country. It seems with the dollar being so weak they see little to no market here and as such are taking these units away.
