Frequently Asked Questions
People are emotional beings. We automatically think that a more expensive product must be better. This couldn’t be more far from the truth. There are thousands of similar products in various industries that have huge price differences but many times the least expensive ones are no different from the more expensive competitors’ products.
Wataboard is a superb product. It is made with high quality standards and designed with performance in mind. Everything from the hose, to metals, down to the smallest screw, we took great care in fabricating and designing our product. Performance wise Wataboard is on par with the high priced brands and in some ways is even better.
EX2 has a flexible Y manifold that can flex side to side. This is the third axis. The benefit is that you can do more tricks and it also absorbs the side to side tugging of the hose so the ride is smoother.
The Pro Hose is much more durable and can withstand a lot of abuse. It is also smoother inside so water flow has less friction. This yields more thust and less fuel consumption. The only trade-off is that it is 20 pounds heavier than the standard hose.
Our steering adaptor plate converts your stock nozzle into a quick connect steering adaptor. You simply attach your stock nozzle to this plate.
In order to connect the hose to the back of the pump there must be some attachment fitting to allow for quick connection and disconnection of the hose. The Wataboard comes with this nozzle/attachment. You will have to take everything off the back of your pump so that the pump is exposed. Once you can access the stock venturi/nozzle you’ll need to take it off the pump. You will attach our nozzle to the pump. Once the nozzle is attached you can then quickly connect or disconnect the hose or U pipe from your boat.
Once your stock nozzle is taken off you have no way of using the steering and reverse. You will need to purchase our steering adapter that has a quick connect. This adapter will allow you to quickly go from boating mode to fly mode. Your reverse bucket should have enough space to clear the steering adapter. But before purchasing our steering adapter please contact to verify. Not all jet boats are the same.
If your boat is longer than 10 feet you will need to extend the standard hose by the length of your boat. This will require a purchase of our hose extension kit. If your boat is longer than 10 feet your boat is heavier than a jet ski. The person flying on the Wataboard has to be careful not to reach the end of the hose. Once the hose is tugged the rider will mostly likely fall. So a use of a heavy boat is not recommended but you can connect the standard hose with the extension directly to the back nozzle without the U pipe and have the rider fly at the back of the boat. The operator of the boat throttle must be careful not to let an inexperienced rider get too close to the boat. At all times the rider and the throttle operator must be aware of each other proximity.
