where is the board holder??

Postby flyingweasel » Tue May 14, 2013 2:22 am

Been on the waiting list for about 8 years at a guess and got this in the mail last night.
So, only question is....where is the board holder?

Dude, I just saw that a few weeks ago in a PWC magazine. I immediately wanted it. I would definitely be the coolest redneck in TN with one of those. Unfortunately the $38k to $40k it cost would buy me 2 nice PWCs and 2 4wheelers :cry: Hell of an idea though. Did you notice that it can't carry a passenger either? How hard would that have been to design into such a high end toy?

As far as the board holder goes, if I could afford one, I would have some Seadoo board racks from the Seadoo wake mounted on it.

The 40k price tag dont bother me. Um, I could get 40k of other stuff for that price, but the original prototype from about 8 years
ago looked way better and demode 2 folk on it. I still got the video. Its probably
Still on youtube.

All this wait for nothing.....


Dude....

Yea, its a shame that production models don't live up to the original concepts. I guess once the engineers put all the practicle necessaries in, it is just not quite as cool.

Every local fire department with a puddle in their district will have to get one of these so they can respond to "rescues".
