Just curious I can pick up some nice Saedoos for a fairly good price and was wondering who has boarded behind a ski? Before you start asking me what kind of ski etc... they both have mor then enough poer to get someone up I was just wondering what the thoughts of the people who have done it are?

Good for hitting sliders, and surface tricks. If you are not hitting sliders it can get boring quick.

Its definately not a boat. But you can get the basics down. Getting comfortable riding regular and switch, surface 180s, ollie 180s, ollie blind 180s, jumping off the lip and doing a little bit bigger front and backside 180s. Perfect for hitting sliders in shallower water. Other than that, it can get boring quick.

We use our jetski for wakeskating all the time. It's fun stuff.

Flight ~~ I never thought much about em until we picked up a pair. Wakeskateing 100% perfect and ollie session with your wakeboard. Here is a video when we were in Powell last year, never used the boat once for riding. One of the best years in Powell with the waverunners! The video will make up your mind.

There was a video posted up a while back of a kid doing inverts and 3's behind a PWC.I think it may have been a Honda.

get a wakeskate because you are limitless. on a wakeboard you are really limited behind a ski.

i prefer to ride behind a ski for sure. way cheaper then a boat, less gas, and you get picked up way quicker when you fall so learning tricks is easier.

check this video out by nick taylor 236

i think the problem we had the most with the wake edition doo was that (besides the obviously smaller wake) when you cut hard heel or toeside it pulled the jetski with you lol...made it so hard to drive someone, he'd cut out heelside and aim me right for land. everyones right on the nail with just working basics and wakeskating behind it

Get a Ronix Covenant or a Hyperlite Roam to ride behind a seadoo & you'll have a blast. The pull is a problem, so you'll have to have a good (& dedicated)driver, but you can have fun with surface stuff. Good way to work on your edging and switch riding.

Yeah, thanks Mike, this was my thread.

The ski was an 06 Honda F12x.

Getting a pull behind a PWC is kind of like riding at a cable park so skates and hitting obstacles are all good. These are also great trainers, the lack of wake and quick pick ups make it the preferred tow boat for persons learning to get up and learn basic board control. I will still get a pull behind one every now and then to work on BS 180s, but wouldn't recommend a PWC as a primary tow boat unless you are skater or have a lot of obstacles to hit.

Ohhh I almost forgot, but on blown out days we will take ours out and send the rider into the triple ups left by boats that have turned around at the end of a cove, and let me say you can get launched! For those of you ready to scream paintball gun, the boats are 100s of yards away. It takes a while for those triple ups to form big.
