Newbie to waveraiders
Hey how is everybody
my name is kyle im 19 and one of my buddy's is trying to sell me 2 waveraiders one is 1100cc and idk about the other one on a trailer for $2000..first is that a good deal for those skis..im almost positive they are both 3 cyls too
I kno nothing about these's skis performance etc.
I live at the jersey shore and am wondering if these skis are sutable..i plan on taking the one and rebuilting it during the winter..are these skis good in the rough water and can i ocasionally jump waves in the inlet with them
also wat kind of performance can i get out of a raider and to get me up with the newer skis performance what kind of money am i looking at
Thanks to all who reply

The 1100 raider it runs around 60 mph gps it can be made to go 70, to do this put a gpr motor in, second you need to check compression on both skis $2000 for both ski and a trailer seems like your buddy is trying to rip you off with broken skis i havent ridden them in the rough but you get wet

everyone starts somewere.....if you talk to Mark, and hes a great guy to conversate with, He will tell you that the way he got that way was trial and error. He played with every variable possible and worked out the best setup.
On another note........I have been wondering if Marks weight hasnt helped him get to 70. He is the only person I know who has a highly modified raider that doesnt porpus. Which is my major problem.
