Sea-Doo Spark

Posted: Updated:

Hitting the water is a way of life in SoFlo whether it's a boat, a Jet Ski, or in my case a floating chair with a built-in cup holder. Yeah, but now there's a new way to get wet. Deco loaded up on sunscreen and spend the day on the water with the brand new Sea-Doo Spark.

There's a hot new model, ready to make a splash on South Beach, but this model doesn't hang out at LIV, wake up at noon and eat celery all day. This new model is the new Sea-Doo Spark.

Tim Mcketcher: "The name has some meaning coz it's really intended to respark the industry."

It's a lot of splash for a little cash.

Tim Mcketcher: "Its a different way to play on the water. It's half the weight of any water craft avail on the market today. It's about half the price of anything on the market today. The average water craft if you were to go to boat show is around $10,000 where the spark starts at $4,999.

And the spark has curves in all the right places.

Tim Mcketcher: "The Sea-Doo Spark carries all the DNA of the Sea-Doo lineup but it looks a lil different. The way the molds are made the designers can add little accents here there in the mat. That makes it really stand out."

To get the spark ready for the spotlight, engineers put her on a diet using lightweight, recyclable materials. That means more splash with less gas.

CODY HAWKINS: "Some of the big models are good for touring but this is really good for the light fun factor. Once you get comfortable with it this thing will spin around, stand up, back forward, hi speed spins."

And there's plenty of power to go around.

CODY HAWKINS: "You have 2 different power packages the base runs around 40 mph then for $750 more you can get the hi output and go about 50 mph."

You can even bling out your boat with custom wraps and pop the canopy if you just wanna chill.

"There's so much water in Miami, it's a shame not to use it so now peep can get on the water for less than $5,000."

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.
