Wakeboarding/skating on a Seadoo
Just started learning to wakeboard on my GTX. Anyone wakeboard with a jetski have any tips or tricks? Thanks a lot.

Have a fat kid ride on the back of the ski
Short rope= narrow wake, easier to clear- w2w
Longer Rope= Wider wake, usually get a better pop off the wake a little futher back
Look into installing a wake pole setup off the Wake Edition skis. . . or loop the rope thru the grab handle for a little more extension
Practice your 180's on the inside of the wake having the driver manuver "s" turns
When you carve back into the wake, keep the carve smooth and ride it out at that angle instead of trying to hit the wake dead-on/perpendicular.
Hardest thing for me is holding on with both hands and keeping them waist high. . .
Get a board rack off the Wake Edition-you'll thank me later

wakeboarding is pointless behind a seadoo. When you cut you just pull along the ski. The wake is never going to be big enough to jump. If you really want to wake board sell your seadoo and buy a boat. The seadoo wake edition makes me laugh

My RXT is perfect for Wakeskating. Just get the board racks like was recommended and you will be set. The Pro Wakeskate tour uses Seadoo's as tow vehicles. With fuel prices the way they are, a Seadoo make more sense to wakeskate behind.
