Not really. I grew up surfing and bodyboarding as we had a holiday place right near the beach. I also swam competitively. Best I can tell my very high centre of gravity and wanting to lean the ski over to turn is a bad recipe on the SJ. Anyway, I actually ... more »

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on it after you have ridden it. I am already convinced that I should buy it, but it's winter here so I am in no hurry unless I can get a SMOKING deal on a leftover 2017. It's a maximum of 13-14C at the moment ... more »

I haven’t ridden the 800, but I’ve seen them raced together with superjets and I know what you’re saying is true. The 800 is more stable and holds a line better through the buoys. The issue I have with the 800 is that there are not a lot for sale and ... more »

Has anyone ridden one or owned one? I am a big guy (mid-6s and right now about 105kg). I’ve ridden a borrowed superjet a handful of times and it was fun but too twitchy for my liking. Intended use would be river cruising and carving, mangrove dicing ... more »

Added reply in a thread If you could buy any helmet right now, which would it be? 5/17/2018 4:27 PM

Exactly this, in addition to all the other 6D converts in this thread. I’m about to upgrade to the ATR-2 and retire my ATR-1 to stand up JetSki riding and gooning around at the farm.

Hahahaha Love it. In other news, I thought this thread might be hinting at a sponsorship tie-up between Monster and some weed company. The amount of people smoking weed in Vegas was out of control.

Troll your boat, mate. Chad is beloved by pretty much everyone in the stadium. We were all going ballistic when he was leading. The entire crowd was roaring. It's a shame you feel the need to be so negative. Have a coke and a smile.

Hey, bd. Any intel on where the after-parties are likely to be? Happy to shoot the breeze on Saturday if you're around.

Added reply in a thread VEGAS SX attendees 4/26/2018 4:02 PM

Excellent intel, thanks mate. This sounds like the plan. If anyone knows where some pros are heading after the race, I would be happy to show them how to drink like a professional for as many 30+2s as they can handle. Bonus points and rounds on me if ... more »

Staying at MGM Grand. I would refer to uber both ways, so thank you for the tip. I plan to stay at the stadium right til the very end. I've been to the US a lot but never made it to a SX, so I want to soak it all in.

Thanks mate. Appreciate the info. Will grab a ticket and check out AX too.
