As Corey said the manufacturers will advise that the ski is not built for this. But who wants to ride straight lines like Kawasaki's do all day.

What year is your SHO?

The yamaha FX SHO will outlast a FZS in the surf but if you go extreme all will develop stress or major cracks, I have seen it, i have done it and I have had them repaired. The weakness is in how long the rear transom is in the Yamaha "Where the top and bottom decks meet above the pump tunnel. This area is extremely long in a Yamaha and takes all the brunt of the water pressure when landing otherwise the rest of the ski will hold up. If you look at other manuafacturers ski's especially the seadoo's rear transom there is hardly any lip "Unlike on a Yamaha" to catch the water shock post landing.

There are re enforcement plates for the Yamaha FZS but nine for the SHO.

I have made my own rear enforcement plates and no problems anymore.

The average wave jumper will not have many issues. Hope this helps.

Attached are some pics of re enforcing plates for the Yamaha. Big Grin

The first 2 are for the FX the last for the FZ. Once this is done you can hit space!

Agree with the issue that might occur further up the ski....not on the rear though

I've deliberately taken my 2008 SHO Cruiser out on a terrible day just to have a real go at wave jumping. Absolutely monster waves just near Mordy Pier.
After many attempts and confidence building, I can say that my ski held up pretty well. I can imagine that doing that sort of thing constantly wouldn't be good, as there were numerous weird sounds, like a crack noise, but I think it was more of a 'water slap' rather than a 'crack'.
I tried to get as high on jumping as possible and had no problems. Its not something I'd do on a regular ride anyway, as I'm over 100kgs, plus weight of ski...... That's too much to handle. I do enjoy trying to launch several hundred more into the air though!

That photo of Kroozer halfway to the moon is just freaking amazing!!!
