I just bought a 93 waveblaster, i aslo have a 96 seadoo gtx. Are the waveblasters supposed to be so hard to ride i have no problem riding the sea doo but i keep tipping over when going slow? Dose anyone have any suggestions on how to ride it better when going slow? The ski runs great that is the only issue i am having, is it something that i just have to get used to? Is there anything i can add to the ski that will help it stabilize more?
Any info would be great.

Yep, that is how the WB 1s are. Tried to ride my bud's WB 3 weeks ago. It wasn't pretty. I was in the water more than one the 'ski
He is 6'3" and 250 lbs and can ride that thing like a pro.
It is something that you have to learn. (or so I am told)
Overall once you get the hang of it, it's a super fun 'ski !!!

Just practice, it is the most fun to ride but if you are bigger its harder. Getting on it is a pain. Don't give up . Try just sitting on it in shallow water. To get the hang of it.

as was said ,thats the way they are...
dont go slow...
and definately dont fall off....
there is a pull up manuver ..its like kicking the bull in the head, then trying to hop on ..you turn,throttle ,then kind of fling your body on...you'll develope a good upper body!

The WB1 is a blast to ride once you figure out what it takes to board one. I used to start mine while in the water and then mount it quick from the back and grab the gas then away you go. After a while I could, in calm water, just hop on and sit stationary. I'm 6'1" 175-180lbs in my 40's. Sold the ski a year ago.
