This looks like too much fun ... for the lawyers! ... Your ski should be your dance partner, not a wrestling opponent

    There was a guy that brought one of these into McCovey cove during a Giants game. They had the TV cameras on him for several minutes. His power source was much smaller than a see-doo and he wasn't doing the crazy acrobatics. These guys are insane!
    Looks cool, just wonder how long the thrill would last. Also, I can see someone nose diving into a pwc or worse someone losing control and the jet pinning them under the water..... I just get the feeling its not that safe, but I could be wrong.

    Reminds me of the kite tubes from a few years ago. Those didn't last long on the market after seeing videos of the riders nosediving out of control.

    Hard to get past the fact that you need a jet ski to do it.

    This guy would probably buy one. He clearly got his man card revoked long ago


    I can picture him flying up in the air with his CUTE little dogs attached to him
    I learned everything I know not to do from Horton

    Saw one in person, was pretty cool, but I seriously doubt I would subject the engine of any vehicle I owned to what that sounded like.

    Looks like there is a place that rents them here in Sacramento. Gonna have to give this thing a try before the weather turns. Mateo come on up try it with me!

    Just more evidence that @Dirt wasn't taking pictures of cute dogs but really the truck in the background that he will later break into for a couple of D3s.
    Success is failure that just hasn't happened yet

    @SkiJay. No matter how boring that would get, to be the first one to try a flip with a probably 100 pound machine spewing water strapped to your back takes some serious balls! That flip was so cool!!!
    I ski, therefore I am

    Why is this called flyboarding?

    Between the feet and the jets is a board I guess. And flying seems to be the main focus.
