Introducing the first of its kind to production, purpose-built mid sponsons by JCRACING.
Do you want your ski turning like it’s on rails? This product is the best handling improvement you will make to your SXR 800/1100, SuperJet, or aftermarket hull. These mid sponsons prevent the rear from breaking loose in turns. The rider will notice immediately how much better the entry and exit of the turn is due to the increased stability and predictability. They will keep you hooked up around the course and provide improved straight-line stability. Unlike other blade sponsons, these don’t create any lift in the rear of the ski, and add rail grip throughout the entire turn. Used and tested for the past year by Pro rider Jimmy Wilson, #219 Ben Swanson, A.J. Luinstra and others. JCRACING believes in this product, if you are not 100% blown away from the performance gain, return it to JCRACING within 30 days of purchase for a full refund! Included in the package is the set of mid sponsons made from the trusted durability of billet aluminum, 316 marine grade stainless steel fasteners, and instructions for the suggested mounting location on your ski. Get the handling advantage over your competition and order your set today! [..]

2017 Long Beach to Catalina & Back IJSBA Offshore National Championship
My experience as a first time offshore racer!
First off, this race is awesome! It was a great experience just as I thought it would be. I had a great time and am so greatful to Jon Rall, Aaron Cress, and Kawasaki USA for providing a fully equipped Kawasaki 310R for me to race which is the only reason I was able to compete in this contest. Aaron had the ski completely dialed in and it ran flawlessly for the entire race. I can’t thank him enough for all the work he did setting up the ski for me ahead of time.
According to other racers, the ocean conditions were pretty brutal compared to some previous years. I have some bumps and bruises on my body and also on Aaron’s bulletproof gps mount from my helmet to prove it! I sometimes felt like a flag flapping in the wind just hanging on to the bars as tight as I could as I was being bucked up and down on the seat and sometimes lifting completely out of the footwells from some of the bigger high speed jumps and landings. I had a few close calls where I was nearly thrown off of the ski as I pushed the limits for the conditions.
