    Default Picture thread: POST YOUR MAD AIR SHOTS!

    I'd like to share to pics that were shot in Galveston Texas. The waves were coming in at 4-5 feet in perfect rolling sets. I have a bunch more that I have to dig out.

    I'm on the 96 XP
    My brother David is "stepping off" a Raider 1100

    Please include some shots' if you have some

    Default Contributing to the delinquincy!!!

    That looks like it was taken right off Surfside or Galveston. My folks live in Surfside, and that is where I do my beach riding. Never got THAT high though. Will have to try a little harder

    Default Air?

    Just one question..........how much stuff did you break when that ski came down? As for you, did you break a leg or anything?
    I'd have peed my pants if that happened to me!...............
    Looking for tips and advice, researched articles on carbs, spark plugs and general maintenance can be found at Snipes Korner. You can also follow me on "Twitter".

    Quality parts at low prices, visit Seadoowarehouse right here in our own forum. Please PM me if you are having a problem finding what you need!

    Is your jet ski fast? Do you want your XP or RXP to stand out? I know a place that has what you need to make it faster. Make your jetsksi a muscle craft, not just the ordinary, standard stock ski.

    Seen my GTX?... Those awesome graphics can be purchased from JetSki Detailing. Tell them Seadooforum sent you.

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.

    Default How I got hooked...

    First rode jet skis in or around 96, a friend had a 96 XP (what a coincidence) and another one that looked just like it but a little longer, that we could put 2 people on or one guy and 2 girls

    We were at Possum Kingdom up near Fort Worth. The water was deep and were jumping wakes behind big ocean-going yachts. Some of us were getting almost as high as those in the first pictures.

    Been searching the past 10 years to find a jet ski and relive those days!

    Now I will try to get pictures from now on.

    I love surfside! Those pictures were actually taken closer to Galveston. Two entrances from the old "8 mile road" beach.

    SDsnipe, luckily the only thing that I have ever broken is a vts steering nozzle. The trick to mad air is obviously to jump in deep water and never land flat... well 1 out of 2 didn't work. I jumped to shallow and drove the pump nozzle into the ocean floor.

    The 96 XP has an awesome spoon shaped hull that coupled with its light weight makes it an easy space shuttle.

    A guy at the dealership whipped out a stack of shots of his WaveBlaster. I like hearing the horror stories of broken heads & hulls! Thought this might be a decent camp fire thread

    Default Pic of a little air, without waves.

    The ski just launches this way, straight out of the water...

    I will try to get some better jump pics when I go out next to the beach.

    Default Well, I got the beach house all next week...

    ...I will try to get some shots near the Surfside Jetty. I have been doing lots of jumping, just never have a camera or camera-person handy when I do it.

    Since we will be at the beach all week, I will try to have the wife snag a couple shots
