we were out this weekend,and had a blast.when one of the kids fell off,I turned kinda sharp to get him,and the tube plunged underwater and really stopped by boat,with water comming over the back was kinda freaky,but no harm done. Does this happen often?Is there a way to avoid it? any help would be great!!

are you power turning??? the best thing to do to keep the water good for everyone and get the rope to your rider without driving around a few to...

when your rider falls, but your boat in idle speed position, when it gets to the no wake speed, start to turn around to your rider and idle over to them and get them the rope. power turning (aka, going as fast as you can in a circle to pick up your rider) should only be done if a boat is about to run over your rider, or they are seriously injured. plus power turning just throws rollers all up and down the ski lane maybe it a rough ride for everyone. maybe you already knew this though?
