I just hope future models have more HP and burn more freakin fossil fuels.
If AL Gore can ride in old Gulfstream jets all by himself, I can run a gas-hungry Seadoo.

Can someone tell me why he is riding with arms locked. Like he is going to fool anyone that this ski is going over 25mph. The idea is good, but the technology is not there yet. So for a 15 minute ride you have to charge for 2 hour with an 115 volt extention cord or you can upgrade to the 1 hour charger. You fun little ski you need gas or alot more batteries to keep up with a RXT.
I see a lawsuit in the works.

WOW!!! That thing looks super fast! I bet it weighs like 4000 pounds with all those batteries in there!
Maybe it's just me, but I love the hum of that rotax motor!!! Quiet would just ruin the ride.

It's just stupid. The gubmint thinks electric powered anything is the balls. Those batteries are a hazardous waste nightmare when they're done and can't hold a charge and a lotta hazardous waste is created when making them. And if we move to electric everything, we'll suck up just as much if not more energy by fueling overburdened powerplants running on coal, oil or gas.
