Re: Kite tube video crash



I've never seen those. That looks like a really good way to get hurt though.

Found out about it from a co-worker that has one. The company has recalled all of them seems a few people have died on them.

Not surprising at all. I've been pitched off tubes at a high rate of speed relatively close to the water and skipped like a stone...loosing my trunks and getting all beat to hell...

Gotta love "alcohol sports"

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Fock that! Even if I were drunk I'd be sitting on the boat with a beer watching the others attempt to kill themselves.

How sweet! I probably would balk when it was time to jump on, but that looks SWEET! Have you ever seen an air chair? They won't launch you 35 feet, but I'm guessing a good 8-9 feet.

Glad you said it, and I even have a tendency to regress every now and then...

Call me crazy, but I'm going to look for one of those. I NEED ONE.

I doubt it will ever get my fat 200lbs butt off the water, but I'm sure I can find someone to drag.
