I've never really done tight turns like that. It's something that I will have to try out next time I get out on the water.

They take some practice it helps to throw your weight to the outside of the turn and lean low to the inside of the turn.

Looking at this video it appears (at 0:06 et. al.) as though he has removed the sponsons from the Spark . That'll let the rear end slide around a whole lot more than with the sponsons on. I tried doing some of these tight turns today on my Spark and on my old GSX and the Spark has a ton more grip. The old GSX will slide all over the place - the sponsons are higher and more rounded than on the Spark.

He also has IBR (which means he has the HO spark) and might have VTS as well. The VTS will let you trim the bow up and make the ski spin around much easier.

Now to take the sponsons off and see how it changes...>:D


The supercharged Sea Doo looks great but the Spark looks more fun.
And yeah it seems like the supercharged Sea Doo's hits it's red line super quickly - almost like it's cavitating and needs a wear ring.

As can I do 180's and 360's with the sponsons on but I have to work fairly hard to pull them off. Much more than on the old GSX - I can just lean in, turn the handlebars and gun it - the GSX will spin like nothing. The guy in the video looks like he is doing them almost effortlessly. I'm wondering if taking off the sponsons will make it easy like it looks in the video. I've read a few threads here saying that removing the sponsons makes it much easier to spin the Spark.
I really like this though :D

Nothing is there to stop the ski to spin without sponson
