    Wouldn't those give you lift on the back end and force the nose down?

    I called them when they came out, and they were using the Seadoo as models, then they asked how long my sponsons were now ,and how did they handle, I figured they were making them as they go, but I am sure it is different now........... after a dozen or so e-mails back and forth,the price was in the 300.00 range..........to rich for me...............

    not so sure on the whole jet wing sponson thing, because sponsons have evolved into different shapes and sizes as the years have gone by and it seems that we are pretty close to what they need to be as far as design and angles go, because so many people have tried so many things and we always end right back up to the design closest to the R&D, Riva or Beach House designs.

    I know some are working on some carbon fiber sponsons at this time which i would be very interested in especially being a thinner design / reducing the drag. Every inch counts i guess - but i wonder how those jet wings would act at 75+....Not so sure i would want to be the ginny pig on that deal.

    Just remember boyz, we ain't ridin' surfboards. The sponson makers have been round and round with every concept conceivable. We do not need that much "wing" surface in the water...if we did, Japan would have made them that way.

    Well I had a knee board made for me one time and had keels like that, I could add them or take them off when added the board would track funny one little move would make the board jerk in that direction. You could turn very hard but going straight you had to really pay attention. Same thing here I think boat would track funny in a straight line the keels would want to grab ( Just my opinion)
