    Blaster £8,500 !!!????

    Glad people are loving the blasters. Keep a look out for our promo video of them in the next few weeks. Certainly not for everyone, over 5ks worth of parts on each ski and hundred of hours put into them. We are in no rush to sell them, timeless classics! All have warranty as a new ski would.

    Jet Action OLD SCHOOL FREESTYLE after many years of competing in freestyle myself I have noticed dwindling numbers of new comers to the sport... I think this is mainly due to the costs of being on a competitive ski. I would like to see the return of entry level freestyle on ski's that are as the manufacturer intended. ie stock hull with the OE engine. I'm just wondering who agrees with us and is willing to attend Old School freestyle and slalom ? We've had feed back from a few new riders who like the idea and me personally love to see the old school stuff.... Big air costs £'s but good old fashioned old school can be done without any expensive mods ! Let's have a discussion. If there's enough interest we can look into organising these style meets in 2016.

    Jetski recovery

    I was there and actually, what they did was park the van and trailer on the beach (not the best idea!) and decided to mess around on the ski until the sea came right up to the front of the van. It was at this point that they thought perhaps they should try to move the van. I felt too bad to tell them that even at this point they had no hope of getting the van off the beach as the water was too deep to drive it to the ramp. The lad tried to reverse the van but it was already too wet under the front wheels. I suggested they call the coast guard/fire brigade or someone to tow them but they didn't seem too concerned about that. They were more concerned about getting their Nike air-max wet so took these off and proceeded to continue in their socks. They all thought it was rather funny at this point and were rather jovial about it and didn't seem too concerned about the 2 wheel drive van being stuck in rising waters. They then took off the trailer and tried to reverse the van again which was quite a way under water at this point. We could only watch as the water came higher and higher. The jet ski was just left by the side floating and could have been pulled to safety at any point. Finally a skip truck came with some pathetic rope that they tried to use but snapped twice and the chain they had wasn't long enough. By the time the skip truck was there the water was up to the windows and the van started bobbing in the water. I left 1 hour before high tide and the van was virtually submerged.

    Jetski to France

    We were going to do it years ago in a group as charity run. It was stopped. Apparently the French would consider it an invasion!

    Jetski to France

    I'm surprised more of you do not do that crossing......22 miles is nothing, as long as you have all the safety equipment....travel in numbers & have all the correct paperwork. SSR & ICC certificate are a must, also proof of ownership & passport to be on the safe side, although driving license etc would be OK, but not worth taking a chance. I always go out with all the safety gear, no matter how far I am going..........Garmin Montana chart plotter, mobile phone, handheld VHF radio, Personal location beacon, offshore flare pack etc. You do not need to contact the French authorities.....unless you need to check fuel availability at a marina etc. You are supposed to contact the coastguard to log a passage plan (solas regs). we used to do this, but to be honest it is a real PITA. They would want to know everyones reg number, then insist on us making contact on arrival in France......sometimes unable to because of poor reception etc. To be honest, as long as conditions are good & travelling in a group, then any mechanical issues should be no problem to handle. Also know your ski inside out & be sure it is mechanically sound. I have had a couple of people come out with me insisting there ski is sound......only to breakdown & need a long tow back! Try & stay away from large ports......jetskis may be prohibited from certain areas & the authorities will take more interest in you. We have been to Carteret, Granville, Mont st Michel, St Malo & saint cast.......never been asked for papers. Only once was a mate stopped in Chausey, but no problems at all. The other thing to consider is conditions......we tend not to set a date to go......we'll just see a good weather forecast first & go from there. Have even been playing around off the coast, but conditions have been so good, we have just shot a cross with the wives & girlfriends on the back! Get a small group together.....pick a nice calm day & shoot across......maybe just to a beach so you don't have to refuel & have the hassle of going into a large port, for the first time......after that you'll be bitten by the bug & get more adventurous
