    Wakeboarding Cruise Control

    I'm trying to shoot a wakeboard promo and I need someway to keep the speed exactly the same for a fairly long time (5-10min). You will probably have the tendency to say use my hand, but I need the ski to stay very steady for my shots. Any ideas welcome, be it electrical or mechanical.

    dont know what sea doo you are using, and idk what speed you are pulling. But i heard you can use the learning key and just keep it floored the whole time.

    You could also try making a some kind of a limiter block that you can place under the throttle lever.

    Yep, I've got a 1/2" dowel sanded to a gradual point that I can insert in between the throttle lever and stop to run at a constant throttle. I put a string loop through it and wear around my right wrist so I can pull it out quickly in an emergency just by moving my hand off the grip. Can run fast or slow by pushing it in or pulling it out.
