There are few brands more closely tied to the long arc of jet ski racing than Skat-Trak. With nearly 60 years of manufacturing experience, the Stuart family first gained traction developing custom paddle tires for dune buggies, sand rails and ATVs, eventually stepping into performance impellers by the early 1980s, and custom pump building thereafter.
Located in Southern California’s Inland Empire, Skat-Trak’s Calimesa location has stood the tests of time, and is one of the few locations that all diehard personal watercraft racers must make the journey to, if only once in their lifetime. The Watercraft Journal made that very same pilgrimage in July of last year and produced a very exclusive, inside view at how Skat-Trak creates their championship-winning products.
Today, Skat-Trak is still one of the biggest names in custom props and pumps – particularly their legendary set-back Magnum pumps, not to mention one of the leaders in the unique double “Twin Drive” impellers used for Flyboard applications across the globe. Still the favorite of many top level racers and performance enthusiasts – including 17-time World Champion Dustin Farthing and Greenhulk.net’s Jerry Gaddis.
That is why we at The Watercraft Journal are honored to welcome Skat-Trak to our growing family of supporting advertisers. Keep an eye out for their ads, and any hot news coming your way from one of the most proven names in performance PWC!
