Where are you located? Hawaii? I would love to do it. These guys are not tourists and I guess it is not as easy as it looks on the clip? Has anyone done it?
Rick Mercer did this on his show... If his pansy ass can do it, anyone can learn it in a matter of minutes. I think the theory of it is fun but in reality 30 mins of fun and you'd be done with it just like riding a jet ski.... Yawn.....
Looks like they are getting this thing dialed in. The first four or five times I saw it on video, the people doing it were not doing much or going very high or doing the dolphin thing. Never looked fun at all before, this video makes it look fun. Still looks a bit restricting dragging a jetski around behind you, but more fun than knitting a blanket for grandma!
That does not mean I want to do it (myself - trying or renting is another ballgame) - just like it looks good to see a speedboat going close to 100mph, does not mean you want to do it (boring)
Or going wingsuit diving close to a ridge - looks awesome and impressive, but still not something you wanted to do because of the short ride and lots of hazzle for this short ride (and some might find it too risky too).
