Hi Guys,

Just come across this forum, have had my spark now for around 6 weeks (12 hours of ride time!), have got a 3up in Licorice..

Any other Spark riders from Melbourne? I launch mainly from Patterson river..

Australia! That means that you can actually ride your Spark now. So many of us are waiting out the winter up here where it is winter around this time. I think you're the first from Australia.

It would be great to hear your thoughts on the Spark so far.

One of my friends just moved to Melbourne on a working vacation. He went from frost bite to sun burns, so he says. Seems like prime riding season there. Have you gotten to take out your Spark very much?

Welcome to the forum!
Loving it so far.. it's extremely light, and you can really feel that on the water.. once you get comfortable with it it's extremely fun to slid around, bounce of wake, small waves etc.. super easy to jump with relatively small waves all being required.. want to go for a longer run? no problem, all good with that too... you will however feel the chop when the wind picks up, the first time I went out was in about 1m swell/chop, it really took it out of me.. body was aching for days afterwards.. but with anything new you get used to it...

Welcome to teh forum.

Any photos of the Spark in action in beautiful Melbourne?
Sorry don't have any yet, I'm usually go out by myself (none of my friends own Jetski's), hopefully picking up a Gopro soon so will post some footage..

Welcome to the forum
Have you ever owned a PWC before?
No, first one i've owned.. I have however riden other PWC's prior, and have done a lot of boating (mainly sailing) over the years..

We have had a crazy summer weather wise, the last few weeks has been mainly 30 degree days with a 5 day run of days 40-45 degree's (Celsius!) It's not usually like this that's for sure, but i'm making the most of it...

welcome aboard @Sparked! At how many hours is the first service interval?
I checked with my dealer last week, I thought it was 10 hours but after speaking with the dealer they told me the Spark doesn't require a run in service.. told me to bring it in at the end of the season and they will give it a service for me..

Really, they dont have set intervals for oil changes and the like? Just one yearly service... Interesting...

Yup it is boring on your own, always best to go with some folks. Thats the problem with PWC's, just have to get your friends and family into it!
