I did look at the Skater's, but the lack of a cabin, the wide load issue on the trailer and a couple of other things swayed me, but I have never ridden in one, so don't know the difference. Also, look as I might, I could never find that just right Skater that lit me up. Lots of stuff on the market, just not the right one for me. Maybe next time. Every time I come to the coast, I realize I will have to retire here in the next 6 or 7 years and then I will Skate.

Not entirely true my ancient and cantakerous friend.

Daytonas ride on the sponsons at speed with the center pod about a foot off the water.
You should know better than to make semi accurate statements to 388pokerrun because he will start preaching it as gospel to the next person who asks.

Or an American Offshore

Or a Doug Wright

Or a Motion

Or an MTI

Or a Nor-Tech

Or an Ocean Express

Or an Outerlimits

Or a Platinum

Or a Spectre
Did I stutter?

Buy a Skater....... If I meant something else, I would have written it.

That american offshore is the only one on the list with a center pod. Someone made a mistake. lol Go out west where the real waves are, you will see eliminators and warlocks eating up the big waves. Whoever said that cats with center pods cant handle rough water is misinformed. Obviously never ridden in one in huge water. Also the 37 talon ran out there for years.
