    Landing tricks

    I have found out(in my case) that the more vertically you lend in the water, the lesser the impact. Even if that means that sometimes I submerge my ski one third through(or more). The flatter I land, the stronger the impact. Just in my case, again. Hope that helps. Happy riding!

    This is my forte. The best thing is to gas or throttle up right in front of the wave and release when in the air. After a few tries you will get the feel. The Hull can take alot of beating, but you need to watch the intercooling mounting bracket or platform as these start to crack from too much jumping.

    why the &*$# would you need to check the belt tension after jumping might as well pull the pump and check under the hood also

    I have been back and forth w/ a 2 degree wedge in the ocean. And i Love jumping larger waves w/ the wegde installed. Keeps the nose up on landings. Less hull that smacks into the water after a jump is less surface tension on the water that you have to break.
