Default Waverunners are fun!!

So today I woke up... went to the pool and swam some laps. I get home, and my friend gives me a call, saying that he took his waverunner out of storage, and asked me if I wanted to go to the beach and ride. Well, today was my first time out on one, let alone driving one, but I got to say... when I was done I had a grin ear to ear!! It was a blast... we were hitting waves, doing 360'*, and just flying! Wow... arenaline rush! Just thought I would share! Anyways, anyone on here go out on waverunners often?

I've driven a waverunner (the two person, sit down type) a couple of times. There'* nothin' like it. Although it seems weird how forty in a car seems slow, but forty on one of those seems like you are flying. I love jumping wake...just always remember-nose into the waves.

I love them too. . .

* jumping off deep sea fishing boats wake (about 4-6 feet of solid waves)
* 360'*
* rolling them over(gotta flip them right side up quick though)
* ridding a 3 person with just my 130lb body, WOT
* haveing contests to see if you can throw the person in the back off. then switch and see if you can hold on
* the fun just never ends

That doesn't sound good. Sounds like you are settling down a bit and maturing

LOL...ya...wife is talking about something along the lines of starting a family... Seriously, though, they are a lot of fun, but not family friendly!

Last night I was trying to convince my dad that we need a waverunner... that didn't go over well. For some reason he thinks spending 3 grand on a couch is ok, but 6 grand for a waverunner was rediculus to him...
