    that was cool!

    I have jumped my GPR behind like a 40+ ft cruiser.. and I always freaked out, because of how the front shoots so high up in the air...

    never hit it full throttle

    that's awesome though...

    those are some pretty dark clouds..

    thanks..40+ footers are the best ... its all about timing so its virtually impossible to hit it full throttle.... right when they come out of a marina is the best time to strike!

    i have some good stories of boats coming into the marina...

    there is a Cigarette club that I think is at the ozarks, but they came down to my lake.. it was like 50+ cigarette boats all 30+ft in length... I just sat waiting outside of the no wake zone.. they all came in at the same time. The wake was like 5ft tall and I was like freaking out... it was late, so they were all drunk and I knew it because they let off full throttle 12ft before the entered the no wake zone..

    I was freaking out.. but then I was like I should be having fun with this.. and cheered up and got some MAJOR air..

    there is also a beach on the side by the no wake zone, so I looked pretty sweet infront of the family that was there with there 5 year old kids

    definitely... we have a few huge boats on the lake i ride on and there is one boat that makes huge waves... and when its going like 20-25mph is the best.

    o yea, reminds me of Lake Michigan! I live right by a channel, we got all kinds of marinas in our inland lake off of Lake Michigan with some masive boats, like 75ft+, and DAYUM when they accelerate out of the channel its like a frenzie of sea-doos lol! There was one time where I was like out by myself, and I see this masive boat coming my way, had to have been leaving a good 5 ft swell, I hit the wave perfectly going maybe 50-55mph, needless to say I launched his whole wake

    I hit some nice rollers off a wakeboard boat on my R-12x doing about 50 at least... yea that didn't work out so well, the nose came up so high and fast I thought it was going to hit me in the face... I really wish I coulda had this on camera... well long story short... going from 50+ to 0 equaled me cartwheeling 2 or 3 times and a dislocated shoulder...

    No more power jumping for this gimp!
