    Need some advice on first ski.

    Hello guys, this is my first post and I know there are some other threads similar to mine. But I'm on diffrent kind of situation here

    First of all I'm about to buy my very first ski, my dad once owned a '96 seadoo speedster and already sold it.
    Now both of us gonna buy a new ski one for each of us, and my dad is definitely buying the yamaha sho, and he also told me to buy the same ski.

    But my heart keep telling me that seadoo is the one for me, the problem is the only seadoo that is available on the dealer right now is the 2007 RXP an old stock I guess.
    I already ordered for the 2008 RXT-X but the dealer said that it's still not yet available and I'm kind of loosing my patience waiting for the ski to arrive,
    because it's been 1 month in the waiting now since I put the order for the RXT-X
    and the dealer suddenly told me there is a problem with the shipping and I have to wait for at least 2 month.

    Now the advice I would need is :
    - Should I buy the SHO ?
    - Should I buy the old stock 2007 RXP
    - Or.. should I wait for the RXT-X and watch my dad having fun with his SHO

    Ohh and I'm in Indonesia, my play ground would be 95% on the sea
    And the water would be vary between 5 inch mild chop to 1 feet chop ( Feb - Sept )
    and the other would be around 5 feet - 20 foot big wave when the big wind hit.

    Thanks before

    No other dealers

    I assume there are no other dealers close to you that may have an
    RXT-X. I LOVE the T-X and would buy that if I was buying a new ski but I have never riden a SHO. Ride your dad's ski and if you like it, buy one.

    I love my P-X but the SHO is a GREAT machine also, I don't think you'll be dissapointed

    So I guess the option is only for the SHO or the RXT-X right..

    Are you really suggesting to buy the SHO right away or should I wait for the RXT-X ?

    I'm really confused right now..
