Yea I know they are gay and they screw up the water and they terroize many of us but I had to see what they were all about. <BR> <BR>Andreas has 3 of them. The Sea-Do RXP's they have a 1500cc motor with 215 hp stock, Thats right a 4 cylinder supercharged inner-cooled power plant. His have been tweeked out to 300 HP <BR>and yes they haul a$$. I jumped on one and could not believe how much pull they have. The first thing you notice is the spooling noise of the supercharger and when you let off the gas you can hear the extra boost being let off like a turbo's waste gate. I have ridden lots of fast street bike's and thought the pull of the RXP was like the rush of a nice street bike in first and second. these things rocket all the way up to 76 MPH in just second's. Its easy to see how people get killed on these. I quickley had respect for them if your a speed junky I can see how people fall in love with them. And no Im not getting one but they are cool. I still hate when they mess up my water but I now know what they are thinking, LOL so if you have one come out of the closet <BR>http://www.seadoo.com/en-US/Watercrafts/2006/Musclecraft/RXP/Introduction.htm <BR> <BR>(Message edited by grant_west on July 31, 2006)

big_ed_x2 07-31-2006 10:01 PM

I have a stand-up for 5 years tho I haven't been on it since I got my boat.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>I can do stand-up but the one's you sit on are gay and for old people.LOL <BR>I don't care how fast they are they are only fun for 5 minutes tops.

tyboarder03 07-31-2006 10:16 PM

Maybe for you Ed

grant_west 07-31-2006 10:29 PM

Yea I could see if your ski only went like 45 mph it would get pretty boring pretty quick. But these things are so fast at top speed they keep you on your toe's

jarrod 07-31-2006 10:54 PM

I like them for about 30 minutes. Then I kind of run out of things to do. You can break yourself. I threw my girlfriend and I off of one. Broke her leg and gave her a black eye. <BR> <BR>I have respect for the serious stand up riders. Those guys break themselves like wakeboarders. I don't mind throwing a meaty surf wake for a stand up rider to hit.

07-31-2006 10:59 PM

I have been riding stand ups for 14 years or so, and still have two of them. Glad to hear most boarders dont classify stand ups, and the couches in the same regard. It takes some real skill to get good, and freestyle a stand up.

brian_l 07-31-2006 11:18 PM

i rode a stock one jesus H was it fast. tweaked to 300 is insanity. i got one up to 68 and i was buggin, deffinatly a good time.

wblwake 08-01-2006 1:08 AM

Yeah I've looked those, some sweet pieces of machienery. But isn't the MSRP around 12000?

depoint50ae 08-01-2006 6:41 AM

I have one and it is fun as can be. I use it to swap boat passengers from shore and the boat. It is also a good distraction for the people that can't get the hang of wakeboarding.

richd 08-01-2006 7:28 AM

Even though I hate those things I still own an old one. Unfortunately my wife loves to toodle around the Delta on it so I can't get rid of it. You can always tell her on the river, shes the one riding the old lime green one looking like she's got a 2X4 up her A$$ going a constant 25 mph. <BR> <BR>She does try not to ruin anyone's water though!

big_ed_x2 08-01-2006 8:43 AM

I'm actually thinking of getting one for my 60 year old mom. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>The stand-up takes skillz and dedication to get good and in no way classified as the sit down one's. <BR> <BR> <BR>Jrod,I can't wait to have my stand up in the water when you are actually surfin.....it sure will be fun whenever it happens.

byrd 08-01-2006 8:49 AM

I agree the stand ups are great. I use to race them before I got married and had kids. I sold my race ski and bought my first wakeboard boat with the proceeds.... <BR> <BR>(Message edited by byrd on August 01, 2006)

jarrod 08-01-2006 9:07 AM

Ed...you wont see me surfing..ESPECIALLLY NOT DOWN VICTORIA. But I would slow down to throw a roller for ya.

richd 08-01-2006 9:39 AM

"you wont see me surfing..ESPECIALLLY NOT DOWN VICTORIA" <BR> <BR>Is there a hidden messsage in the above?

jarrod 08-01-2006 10:05 AM

Not so hidden I guess. <BR> <BR>Hey, I saw you at Reno. By the time I came looking for you, you were gone. Did Chris go?

walt 08-01-2006 10:15 AM

I had some ass hat on a jet ski jumping My wakes while surfing and He fell about 20-30 feet away from My downed rider. <BR> <BR>I gave him hell and He replied...Why are You getting so pissed ? I was like 30 feet away from Your rider !<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/angry.gif" border=0> I had My wife and friends on board so I just let it go. <BR> <BR>So what's the legal distance anyways ?

tyboarder03 08-01-2006 10:19 AM

I believe 200ft at pulling speeds, the sheriff ran us down last year for passing between a downed rider and shore... prolly about 75 feet from both.

jarrod 08-01-2006 10:23 AM

Unfortunately at the Delta, it's hard to stay 200 feet from anyone or anything. I don't think 75 feet would bother me.

psudy 08-01-2006 10:51 AM

Pecker gnats!

mjmurphy53711 08-01-2006 10:53 AM

50 ft is the rule in many states.

andreas 08-01-2006 10:56 AM

Yeah and whatever you do don't ride them full throttle and then decide to let off the gas. Especially if you have had a little to drink :-(

acurtis_ttu 08-01-2006 11:31 AM

I got on one that was stock over the 4th.....insane quick. It's an odd sound to hear a supercharger under your seat.

ktmwakeboarder 08-01-2006 6:00 PM

300 hp is nuts... I can only imagine

rmitchell242 08-01-2006 6:07 PM

yes andreas if someone did that they could end up in the emergency room on a friday night until 3:45 am ...Right?.......

08-02-2006 12:02 AM

Here is a picture of real jet skiing. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/352849.jpg" alt="Upload">

xstarmeli 08-02-2006 12:25 AM

wo! That's crazy!

ktmwakeboarder 08-02-2006 12:50 AM

awwwwwwwwesome! Craig- any more pix like that? and where is that?

08-02-2006 11:35 AM

That is at Oceanside. Not to many places where that is still legal. Oceanside, a couple spots in San Diego, and Pismo are about it. I still get down there every once in a while. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/353011.jpg" alt="Upload">
