That is a cool idea. I'd like to see video of it going more than 1 mph and deeper than 1 foot, though. If it does, I'm impressed! That's your lake isn't it?

The Navy has been investigating this technology for years now.

The technology licensed to STIDD systems mentioned in the article was developed here at the Navy base in Panama City. My office got the patents and administers the license.

Yes, that's the lake I ski on. I've seen them down there testing it a few times. Pretty cool!

Have you seen it going 30+ mph? I wonder what kind of propulsion system they have. It's probably battery powered for underwater cruising if it will go 600' deep as claimed.

here's a link to their website http://hyper-sub.com/home.php. the pics look cool, but there is no evidence of it going lower than a few feet under water.

I put some wakes on it a few weeks ago. I went by it wakeboarding and it went at least three foot under when my wake rolled by. Too bad Trick you weren't there, you were out Xmas shopping.

Is it faster than a MC too, just like CC and Bu? (j/k)
