Skwal

Has anyone heard of these? I used one a while back when in the alps. I am looking for one here in the USA. I am looking for something fun to do while my kids are in ski lessons.
If any of you have a lead, let me know. I would love to pick one up.

    Had one a couple of years ago. Scary as hell. Sold it same year i bought it. Ill stick with my monoski when i want people to stare. Check ebay, they pop up there occasionally.

    @oldjeep.
    Watched a couple videos of this aspect of snow skiing. What made it scary?
    Did not see any powder action just groomed medium slopes.. looks fast !
    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    it IS fast, the hard part is dumping speed if I recall. groomers are a must, and I'd stay away from super steep stuff.

    The scary part was that Midwestern trails are narrow and it was super easy to get back on the tail, which would launch you off into the trees and snowmaking pipes. Non release bindings also scared me. That is a really long lever and the give is your knees
