I have this friend Ric, who LOVES to fly. Big time. and I think a Weegoo kite tube would be perfect for him given his love of the skies.

does anyone know if you can drink beer on them?

and can you fit a flight attendant on them?

well, I suppose you could have the flight attendant in the boat serving you drinks between flights. and that way you can hold on while flying, and just drink two fisted between flights.

where can a fella find a good used Weegoo kite tube?

well if i'm not mistaken... you can't even sell them on eBay i don't think since they've been outlawed...

i do have a riding buddy who has one but there's no way he comes off of it...

you can drink beer on them... and yes it puts your health at an exponentially greater risk... driver considered

yep you can have a flight attendant on it but it sucks when she falls off before you b/c chances are shes going to be partially naked and you're hanging on for your life and can't see a thing

well, my friend Ric said that the flight attendants dont always have to be female. as long as they serve him 2 beers at a time, he dont care.

You didn't set a price. Besides, you can FLY ANYTIME you want if you have one............;)
Caution though, I've heard some of the flights are ONE-WAY.............8p

I dont think so.

if you've never been on one... they're fun as all get out but you can get youeself in over your head really quick... i did... the boat doesn't have to be going the fast either... faster the boat goes the faster you climb... it's really fun once you "get the hang of it"... we just kept going up and doing flips off of it backwards... saw a double back off of one it was bout 12 ft up

hey UMP those things retailed at $600 apparently... and now they're extinct

soapbox:: i think it sucks that they outlawed them... it's BS... people should have all the freedom to get one of these things and kill themselves on it if they want to... just like owning a crotch rocket or a gun... they'll kill you really easily if you don't take a little bit of caution when operating

It came with the house. Not like he went out and purchased a pool Bert.

August 15th the water fianlly hits 70 degrees and August 28th they close it for the year. 8p

He'll tell you its gets warm earlier than that but when asked to show a picture of him in this damn pool he gets busy and needlessly distracted.

So therefore (in a Charlton Heston LOUD voice)....

I call BULL ****:D

Selling them on ebay or elsewhere is legal, although the seller's personal attorney might recommend against it.

Yes, I've read that some states, cities, or local lake associations have passed ordinances against towed flying devices, including Parasails.

You are looking at the Wego Kite Tube by Sportstuff.

I bought it about a month before it was taken off the market.

It flies well and is safe if used correctly.
Great $600.00

its totally safe. only woosies get hurt on them. we like to go full throttle and give the rider some good air and speed. i usually like to get really drunk before i ride one or drive for someone. make it alot more fun. beer usually gets foamy, so a small size bottel of jagermiester works perfect. once airborne you can take a few swigs.
