I know we have discussed this until we are blue in our faces about how dangerous these are. When watching the video check out the shot where the two boats are both flying them and look how close the one gets in fromt of the other. Man it could be ugly.

It certainly looks fun and I think with the right driver and rider is!

I like the line at the end (and in the ads) NEVER FLY HIGHER THAN YOU ARE WILLING TO FALL.

I'm starting to see more of those on the lakes and when I do - I get the HELL outta the way. Pretty scary (which is what makes it fun).

I like at the end where it said the soaring was performed by professionals ...

Man, where do I get a job like that? "Professional tube rider" :rolleyes:

I don't like those promotional videos. I just like seeing the home videos of people crashing(as long as no one gets seriously injured). :D

Those tubes--Wego Kite and Manta Ray-- have been banned by the Corps of Engineers on corps lakes here in Arkansas. Probably smart.

It will probably be removed from the market like the WEGO KITE, before somebody else gets seriously injured or killed!

You guys realise that a few successful lawsuits against the boat drivers involved in some of these 'flying tube' accidents are going to affect all of us, right??? ---as in insurance rates.

What's the bet on when the first law suit does come out or is there one allready?
