    RXPX Mods for rough water riding?

    Hey guys,
    Just picked up my X last week. I ride Ocean only and was wondering what are the best mods to improve handling and increase speed.
    I ordered the free flow exhaust and plan on doing the ride plate mod w/skegs (with holes filled) and RE Blockoffs.
    My questions are:
    Would I need to run a front air intake because the RIVA 4 will take on some water?
    Catch can...Should I run one? I've been reading and some people say not to run one while riding in the ocean. They said the extra oil coating protects everything. If I do choose to run one can I install it before the engine is broke in?
    Riva grate or R&D or will the stock grate (with or without outer wings cut) yield better hookup results in rough?
    Wedge?
    Aftermarket sponsons?

    Thanks for your time.

    If you ride ocean only I would have recommended the RXT X.
    I have a RXP and just got the RXT X for the rough water riding I do.

    I wanted a 2 seater, I like to jump waves...I had a r12x before and they said the rxpx handles the rough a little better?

    This ski is designed from the factory for ultimate hook up. Look at the grate on the ski, it is massive and has a huge scoop on it.

    definitely a front air intake, over the rear if you are a big lake or ocean rider. You ingest too much water while ocean riding if you have the rear intake.
