Inflatable Raft+Kite=?????????


Ok, this past Christmas I got an inflatable raft from Santa, why? I have no idea. Then I thought, hmmmm, maybe I can sit in it and ride on the snow powered by my Beamer 4. Has anyone tried this? Is it crazy? I think it would be a blast but I just want to know if any one has tried this yet! I saw one vid on YouTube and it looked like fun.

It'd be pretty much impossible to hold a line so you'd go down-wind the whole time but if you don't mind walking back it'd be a blast!!!

If it's big enough for some company, try persuading a buddy or two to come along with a canoe paddle for steering.... You won't be going upwind, but you'll be able to swerve around a bit...

Don't know how big your beamer is, you might need some serious wind to get that moving on loose snow.




fixed bridles, flying static, been two years now... ??? folks must be wondering....

sting 1.7, dp power 2.5, crossfire 3.2, ace 5, blade iv 6.5, ace 8, ace 12...

also a couple of arcs, 12 syn and 12 phanny, but i\'m not yet up to speed on them.

Recreational or white water raft?

Some of our fields have sharp ice under the snow that would do a number on a raft that isn't meant to be kissing up to rocks and logs.

i did it 2 years ago--it WAS a blast, but you could only go downwind and it didnt take long before the bottom of the raft came apart--try a round sled or scud on your feet......a snowboard is probably best--or skis........
