    Half the reason I got my truck is to tow my jetski to the lake and ocean. I love my stand up jetski. These things are like dirt bikes on water when it's too hot for the desert. Anyone else ride stand ups?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The better half and I had to get rid of our jet skis, one of which was a Kawasaki the could be ridden standing up. It's nice to jump the surf and go way, way up in the air but our backs got too old to take the compression when landing, especially considering that Momma has a bad back to start with.

    I'm gonna be heavily modifying a js550 hull this winter. The 550sx hull has taken a beating riding the surf. Widening the tray, lower the rails and move them forward, footholds, and get braces for everything.

    Nice looking skis! I'm a big fan of the JS hull... It's fun and retro. I've ridden a 1100cc SXR and other modded skis which are fun, but I'm pretty attached to my '92 550sx with Reed motor. Is the yellow one a JS440?

    The yellow one is an 85' 550sx I believe. Or at least that's what I was told. The guy I bought it from is still searching for the pink slip. What do you expect for a $100 ski though
