If a raptor can do it, I am sure the XX is more than capable of doing it, and it does look cool, but I will never try it with my bike.

I haven't done it yet because I have angled paddles, but IMO here is what you have to do from seeing it done 100's of times.

Try a short run first. (do the run A LOT so you get used to it)

STRAIGHT PADDLES.

2-3 pounds in the front tires.

ALL your wieght on the back wheels.

Haul ass.

Yeah, the back tires. Your quad will float, although it will be upside down.

Figure that the rest of your ride will be ruined or non-existant and that you will be changing your oil another good 6-7 times before you get all the water out.
