UPDATE: 5/1/13 - 7:30 PM - According to a local news affiliate, Kenny's condition has been upgraded from critical to serious. Said teammate Travis Willis, "Kenny's in stable condition. He's doing better day by day. He's breathing on his own. He's moving both arms, both legs. He has opened his eyes. So, each day gets better and better."

Sometimes You Need to Go Fast, Sometimes You Need to Slow Down

September 14, 2018

Yes. This Is Sea-Doo.

Obviously, if you're on a "powersports" site such as ours, you appreciate going fast and going hard. Sometimes, though, you want to slow down. What do many of us do when we need to quiet down some? We go fishing. Heck yeah.

Well, guess what. Now you can do both. Go fast and slow down. Yup, get to that fishing spot as quick as possible, so you can spend even more time enjoying the ol' fishin' hole.

The Sea-Doo GTI Class - Style, Stability, and Serious Fun

August 10, 2018

You know how it is. There's always that one guy; that one guy (let's call him Mr. Jones) who has to brag about all his escapades and latest gadgets: "This summer I did this...", "check out this new blah blah blah I just bought...", and so on and so forth.

You're probably a little tired of it. He doesn't get the hint when you roll your eyes. So maybe it's time to take it to the next level. Maybe you need to buy yourself a Sea-Doo GTI.

If you're looking for a watercraft that maximizes the fun on the minimum budget, the GTI class provides more features at an unbeatable value for money. The Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) lets you maneuver with ease. Enjoy more time on the water with the most fuel-efficient engine in the industry and the innovative impact-resistant polytec hull. Oh, and by the way, this ride is FUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNN.

This is also the perfect time... after all, Sea-Doo is having a great promotion that Mr. Jones doesn't know about. We're talking a $1200 rebate on GTI's, as well as 0% financing for 36 months for approved buyers!

Enough of the whole "Keeping up with the Joneses" thing. It's time to make Mr. Jones a little jealous and shut him up for good. Buy the GTI and enjoy his frustrated silence. Case closed. You win. Drop the mic and walk away.
