You get to just sit on top and get splashed and stay cool and go fast- and it's self-bailing.
… and I swim... in big water I'd swim A LOT!!
it is fun tho'
What ski is it? I remember your Cobra wasn’t slow.
V12 I'm not much slower in the cobra, because I lack the skill and confidence to paddle the ski properly. A good paddler in the Ski crushes me in the cobra
I'm hoping for just the right amount of 'turmoil' on the water so I can at least see the vapour trails of the competitive racers heading out on the bikes from TA 1
When we bought our surf ski, that's what the vendor described. He sees a lot of people who aren't Jack Van Dorp going faster in a V8 than a V12 because less of their energy is devoted to staying upright. Not to mention extra time spent getting out of the water if they tip.
Have a great race! :)
