This just popped up on my FB feed, wondering if it would work on a jet boat. I gotta say that’s an impressive wave for a jet ski!

not sold yet. Needless to say the second person to surf is too pretty and distracting for me to pay attention to the wake.

I wonder about throttle control on a jet ski - that's gotta be a PITA to keep it consistent.

The high end skis have speed control....not sure how well it holds a speed....especially at 10mph, but I'm sure someone on here has one.....

That wave looks pretty tiny....sure a 70lb teenager with some skill can surf it, but that would be about it.

I contacted the company to see if they've tested these on jet boats at all.

Looks decent. Although what I saw was just another Jet Ski Driver not looking forward and running into or over someone. They are already pretty unconscious drivers around here on the lakes.

Looking for the disclaimers...
