Kickers
 
Im building a new kicker that im going to be hitting from a seadoo/boat and im curious to what you prefer in the design of a kicker. Curved or straight angle? Also, what is the ideal size?

depends on what you plan on doing of it really. Flat kickers are generally easier to spin off, while curved kickers will give you extra boot and are much better for inverts.

If it were me I would do something in between with a mostly flat kicker with a gradual, mellow kick at the top. Size wise since you dont want to go too big, 4-5 ft over the top of the water would be nice.

something like this would be good I think, this kicker is about 3 feet above the water for reference. So I personally would want it a bit bigger as you could possibly outgrow this one

Great, thank you for all the help Mark! Does anyone else have any kicker designs that they would be willing to share?
