Never Judge a Book by its Cover

In 2005, I had the opportunity to be one of the first non-Hydrospace employees to ride the Hydrospace. I wrote the first ride report on the Hydrospace S4 110 that night and posted it to the PWCtoday forum boards where it can still be read there to this day, just google “Riff’s Hydrospace Review.” In hindsight, I think my review has stood the test of time. I made a few bold claims but one never came to fruition: I expected the four-stroke turbo twin cylinder powered ski to usher in an era of 80 mph standups. I was wrong on that one. Fast forward a decade and I am here to write another “first ride” review. And again, I’ll be making bold predictions about the potential of a new ski. This time I am sure I’ll be right when it comes to 80+ mph skis, but time will tell if my other, even bolder, prognostications will come to be. [..]
