Enter The Watercraft Journal’s 2016 Skyway Show Signup Sweepstakes


In addition to SBT’s sizzling annual calendar, the industry’s leading (and largest) engine remanufacturer hosts – via the Watercraft Superstore – the annual Skyway Ski Show. A fantastic day spent welcoming personal watercraft enthusiasts of every degree and walk of life to participate in a one-of-a-kind comparison test. The results of which are published in the company’s seasonal “magalog.”

For 2016, the Skyway Ski Show will be welcoming back all three OE manufacturers: Kawasaki, Sea-Doo and Yamaha, as they’ll be competing for top spots in two categories: Luxury Entry Level and Top Level Performance. Slated for testing this day are the Kawasaki 310X, Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 and Yamaha FZR; and the Kawasaki STX-15F, Sea-Doo GTI SE 130, and Yamaha VX Deluxe.

Each year, a group of panelists are chosen to test ride these machines, to truthfully and carefully evaluate each one, and submit their review for a final points tally. As many the savvy WCJ reader will note, our own Editor-in-Chief Kevin Shaw stepped in as head judge for the event last year, and has been asked to return as again for 2016, with Jeff Hemmel returning as the lead judge. Yet, The Watercraft Journal will not be returning for 2016 alone…one of YOU can be a guest judge for the upcoming Skyway Ski Show!


That’s right, kiddos! Not only will you be one of the lucky few to spend the day riding and reviewing these awesome machines, but you’ll be our guest of honor! You’ll be flown roundtrip (within the lower 48 states) to Tampa, Florida, put up in a swanky beachside hotel, fed all sorts of awesome food and provided transportation from the airport to the hotel and to the event and back! Also, you’ll be going home with full setup of JetPilot riding gear, Sea-Spec goggles and a swag bag of goodies!
