pulling that thing behind you

it would get old pulling that thing behind you
talk about being
tied to your mommy's apron strings
and
when one comes down hard
on the unit in the water
that is going to hurt
I saw one fitting leaking
did you catch that
trailers and motor homes have a little upkeep
that thing would spend much time out of the water

my bet is that
they do not make it for long

kind of like the one man rocket device
looks good for a short skip in the stadium
but
will not get you too far down the river

Looks like fun, but also dangerous for the unskilled (and how would one develop skill at this?). I'd rent one, but I wouldn't buy one.

Looks extremely cool, but I think it takes quite a bit of balance to keep yourself out of the water. The woman wasn't doing a very good job. The Zapata dude obviously has perfected the technique. I think you'd have to just about sign your life away to rent one of these things, so I'm thinking that wouldn't be an option. I don't have sound right now on my computer; was there mention of a cost for this?
