    I have been looking for a Skwal in the US that is reasonably priced... Only one company over here that I know of...

    Like @JBB said SKWAL is water skiing down a mountain

    I owned one for a while, scared the crap out of me.

    I stick with the monoski now when I want to be the weirdest guy on the hill

    @MNshortliner I rode a a “Teleboard” like that several years ago. Same idea as the film but set up with telemark bindings. It was interesting but no substitute for the real deal. At least that was my takeaway after riding it for an afternoon.

    @oldjeep what was it that scared you about riding it? To me it looks like you'd rip your shoulder off if you caught it on something.

    @skinut non release bindings, and if you got back on the tail you were only along for the ride to the crash site.

    @JBB - Give Sean Martin at Donek in CO (donek.com) a call - he's made Skwals before, and they've been well regarded. I've owned and ridden several of his alpine race (ie, hard boot) snowboards, and he makes a mean machine!!
