How deep is the water? Deeper the water the easier it is.

believe it or not the tires have a lot to do with it.
i used to have MSTs and had a hard time doing it b/c my tires would dig in the sand. mudlites are the same way.
i have outlaws now and no problem getting up in water. its a night and day differnce.

I run 6psi in my mudlites and the first time I tried to do a water wheelie I did it just fine. There is a lot of timing in it not just psi and what kind of tires you have. Last weekend I seen everything from bi/tri's to stock tires doing it. All I did was wait until the water was over the tires sit back on the seat as far as I could nail it and pull back hard. I did not have to stand on the rack or anything.

If you are deep enough it is hard not to wheelie I'm talking where only the handlebars are out of the water.

At a stand still, water at fender level, first gear, accellerate with all its got and you are up on (2) wheels. See attached

swamprat. I wish I had to stand up and lean forward to keep ATV from flipping over backwards. I am a big boy at about 6 foot and 240 pounds. LOL. I have to pull the handle bars back to keep mine from falling forward on to its nose. LOL
