Think of it as bike for the water, how hard is it to be stationary on a road bike without moving? If you follow my drift
Now as for turning if you can corner a kawasaki stand up you should find it easy, The trick is just ever so slighty let off the power just before turning let the front dip turn the handle bars and gas it again, its all done within a blink of the eye
Altering the trim makes it handle completly differantly, trim in the midddle to down it handles like a race bike, trim fully up it kinda handles like a speedway bike, ie a lot of fun either way

Do you know how to deep water board? if not you are going to struggle, watching somebody try and board one is even more amusing than watching them fall off

When Im on the hx I am sat down feet postioned in the middle either side, I spend most of my time on an sxr so its nice to have a seat for a change,
Oh and when you take a sharp turn and you are sat, you will feel the seat squat lower which helps you turn quicker as it lowers you centre of gravity.
Let me know how it goes
