    The main thing is that jet skiing is a niche hobby and we all take care of each other. Contrary to two or three people’s opinions, you can’t make long term money on flipping skis

    You can for a fun side job, I just bought a 550/650sx/x2 & 750sx for cheap because it's October in Minnesota and since you don't find many stand up's in this area you can get a decent price for them in June. And the Canadians are always willing to drive here because you really can't find any stand up jetskis up there.

    But back to the original point yes Facebook has killed PWCtoday a bit, I used to come to this site all the time when I was 15/16 and there were always new posts/threads and now I don't see much going on, especially in the Individual Builds section, I used to love those posts.

    I've noticed that a lot. I don't know how many times I see people talking in a FB Group and think they are on an actual forum. Groups on FB have really changed how people look for info. There is good and bad. You'll see people ask the same questions over and over because they don't know how to search and it's just easier to ask. I think that hurts the FB group. Sometimes I see good info on a FB Group, but often it's repetitive and basic questions.

    This site is so big with so much info, most of questions have already been asked and answered. Someone can search on Google and find the answer very quick thanks to this forum.

    For real questions, I'll always search for the answer on a forum like this, but most people are shifting away from that.

    This is THE site... it's not small at all.
