    Definitely YES, but the good news is that you will get the hang of it and learn how to use your power more appropriately.
    It just takes time and a bit of help from the older hands.

    Yes this is definitely down to driver inexperience as you shouldn't normally get spray from a Flying Fish. There are other proprietary craft out there that guarantee to drown you in spray!

    Just remember to trim the craft so it rides level. If there's any spray at that front, you're sitting too far back.
    Also drive it sensibly in a straight line, no "doughnuts" etc, keep it above hump speed and you'll be dry as a bone!

    for my 2 pence worth.... try not to stop on water, i always get wet whenever i have to get going on water. I have also learnt to avoid sharp turns that will scrub of to much speed. the more you can stay faster than hump speed the dryer you should stay.
