Holy **** that looks dangerous I could only imagine what 30 feet in the air plus 30 miles an hour must feel like. Face planting on a wakeboard hurts bad enough....

So do you treat it like a tube and try to throw people off? Figure 8's would be money!!!

Low might have posted this, I can't see his vid, but this is why they are hard to find. Not the same brand, but they have all come under safety fire.

Illegal on Arkansas Lakes I had a Delta Dart inflatable at one point and got quite good at the skipping and skimming. It just needed a touch more lift to get it out of the water for more than a brief second.

I had everyone on the lake trying to throw me off the thing but, like a side car hack, I was unshakable. I even unloaded two guys from their jetski as they were trying to throw me and dumped themselves instead

Well that just bites! "random quote's":.........no no no, you might hurt yourself. Can't do this or that because of this or that, Buncha weeeeeenies I say! ok, rant off

I'll still fly it if I get the chance. Looks like (from the other vids shown) you just need more speed, a head wind, & more guts. WOO HOOOOOOO
