This pumps new life into water sports doesn’t it? I can’t even begin to imagine the injuries sustainable after taking one of these things for a spin.
A friend was telling me that they knew someone who was either seriously injured or killed riding one of these (I can’t remember which). Still, it looks like fun and I’d love to give it a shot.
These are really good fun i have one but i haven’t gone as high as the guys in this video.
I can definitely see some serious injury resulting from one of these things. Imagine being 20 ft. over the water going about 30MPH and having the nose dip just enough to get caught. It would definitely send you nose first into the water (serious spinal injury).
They banned these things on Oklahoma Lakes….and I wanted to get one damnit.
To be fair, the video does say not to go any higher than you’re willing to fall. And the people flying the thing in the video are wearing helmets.
i saw this thing in a “SkyMall” magazine on a flight from the north… I couldn’t believe my eyes and suspected photoshop…. looks like I was wrong…. NOW THIS looks like a FUN way to dislocate a shoulder ;)
Sign ME up!
I believe these were banned after 40 broken necks and two deaths.
Thesr sre banned if not banned already.
Friend of mine is DEAD cuz of this friggen thing.. Yea.. it looks fun.. but it will kill you.
My Friend was like, ohh, 12 feet in the air, not going that fast, he fell off, hit the water, didnt hit that hard at all either, He broke his neck and was killed instantly.
miss you Kenny..
