yeah moto, i have some pics somewhere, I raced the Busch World Cup Tour in Florida, until someone borrowed my ski for good (stolen). I have some pics around, jumping 10 foot waves in Daytona Beach, its a blast. We even went out with a hurricane 200 miles offshore, there was no beach, 200 years of whitewater all the way to the walls on the beach, 15 foot waves. We went out in full gear, wetsuits, helmets, gloves, booties, let me tell you, it was a blast, but if you got dumped by a wave, better be good at holding your breath as you usually didn't pop up for 15-30 seconds....and ready for some roadrash bounced off the ocean floor.
We ran 450 gallon/hour bilge pumps in our ski's to pump all the water out. And if you got swamped, had to hope you can get to the ski and that it starts. We had beach patrol and cops on the ramp waving us in. I told my friend Mark when we could talk between waves, 'might as well stay out here and burn up some gas, we're all ready in trouble' lol
