Been around for a while! Looked a bit lame so I never bothered looking any further at it but ... I get better hang-time trying NOT to jump :o

Whoa looks unstable too!

LOL watching the official promo ... THAT'S what you call big? :lol: I'd rather have one of those manta-things ...

Yeah... I got a kite. Or two...

The vid makes it look plausible but it would be a pain in the arse if you fell with all that. I adjust my rope length so I DON'T jump too far out in the flats of the wake. That just hurts on old joints. You must have a driver you trust as well. Too much speed and its out of control. It's just more of the "I want to be extreme right now" crowd that won't work their way through learning and good skills. Just like kiting, when guests go out in the boat with us, and say they want to learn to wakeboard. I say for them to spend one session on a pair of skis if they've never ridden behind the boat. The ones that decline never get up at all. I had one person get up on a board without skiing first. He had years of snowboarding experience at a high level.

I've spent a lot of time behind a boat on Smith Mountain Lake. Fun times there.

Already Illegal in some states, too. I'll stick to kites without powerboats attached.

Tide? What's a tide? Man, it's 1000 miles to any ocean.
