I have skipped water plenty of times with my Mach Z. Me and my cousin, with his MXZ 670, skip side by side ridding each others wakes over a 1/2 mile. Our next goal is skippin the entire lake in the summer time (4 miles)

I've pounded myself over the head with a sledge countless times and often my friend and I take turns bludgeoning each other til we almost die.next summer we're goin to use pickaxes instead.Seriously, if its done in a controled manner and ya wear a life jacket,or its not to deep it is a good time. Amazin the traction ya get on water.

my buddy had a kawasaki 1100 waverunner, and he was always busting my balls about my "cute little 600" motor in my sled. a few years ago i ran across an article in a PWC magazine where they did a tongue-in-cheek comparison of the latest yamaha waverunner vs. a yamaha snowmobile slightly modified to race on water (narrower ski stance, paddle track, and i don't remember what else)
on a course marked with bouys. the writers were shocked to find that the sled spanked the waverunner. they couldn't believe how fast it accellerated out of the corners. they did say that the sled didn't turn nearly as well as the waverunner, but were amazed when the sled ripped past the waverunner comming out of every turn.

needless to say i rubbed my friends nose in it a little. he doesn't tease me about that anymore.

someone should build track based pwc. the problems with snowmobiles is you can't stop, so put a hull on one, and giver. a better steering system than skis would help too.

In thunderstruck there is a pretty cool part where they tow a skier for a while, then jump the sled off the ski jump.

A sled and go faster, and jum farther off the jump than a jetski.... There was an article in one of the watersports mags about it too.

well i'v done about 1km on my mxzx 700 with a 1.25 inch paddle track...but we are looking for more, its hard to find that kind of water in the winter and if you do sometimes you don't want to take it, the world record or longest ever done on a snowmobile is 62 mile on lake ontario, the only reason he stopped was because he ran out of gas!!!!!
2 sleds
30 000km combined
thats a hell of alot of real world riding!
