Anyone ever see or use one of these? Can't have a problem with the driver anymore :eek:
Looks like it would be good for recreational skiing.

They're illegal in all of Canada and in 24 states..

That is one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. How much $$$? Looks like you control it from the handle.

The spot I saw in Wired magazine was list just over 10K new. The pix on the web site looked fun, but I would want a really open lake or spotter around me to try this.

Looks like fun.. I like to drive. :steering: I like to ski.:headbang: Hmmmmmm..:banana:
Someday when girls quit wanting to hang out on my boat and I have no friends, I am going to go get one of those things (and one of those two wheeled people mover things too!) :noface:

Probably not too hard to pull off line.
I saw one at Moose Country Waterski Camp when I was there. Never saw any one use it. Every one wanted to ski behind the MasterCrafts. I bought my MC four days after being there. Biggest impulse buy I ever made and one of the best as well.

I think I read the weight is 350 pounds, so I would think you could pull it a lot. However if you look on the website you see guys cutting pretty good, but never a string of turns.

I know some people who have rode behind them, from what they said it travels along way after a fall. They ended up just trying to hang on to the handle when they fell. I guess the other option is not to fall.
