Nothing like Offshore Racing! Glad you liked the vids. We ride year round, just like in Florida. We too are training for Long Beach 2 Catalina. Its a 58 mile race to Catalina Island from Long Beach. Very cool race! Mike Follmer should be representing on his Yammi, other than that, not too many Yammi's out here. In our group, we have Kawi's, and Sea Doos. The Doo's are plain FAST! The Kawi's stay planted.
So, I hope you guys are training hard, I've heard rumors of some Cali guys possibly going down for that race. We will see though. Would be cool to have a Cali guy bring home the first Trophey...

Not sure on the camera. OU812 is the cam. man. Check out some posts by him, I think he's stated what he has. Remember, Ocean riding is very rough on the ski, & camera. What's good on flat, is not good on the rough. I want to buy the POV VIO camera, but its $600!

When you guys talk offshore chop, what wave heights are you talking about?

typical south florida chop is 2-4foot...with intermittent 6 ft ....the biatch is the spacing of the waves......6-10 ft spacing between waves from the constant wind....makes it difficult to get any top end going (and u feel kidney punched) cuz ur airborne and throttling the ski constantly......thank god for rev limiters!!!!!
