I think the kite tube is going to blow the manta ray out of the water. Not sure but i believe they come out Jan. 20 . cant wait to try it out<IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> check out this vid. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.sportsstuff.com/towables/wego/movie.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.sportsstuff.com/towables/wego/movie.shtml</a>

Whats up guys, Im a designer at Sportsstuff and was heavily involved with the testing and design of the kite tube over the last year. I am also the Marketing manager (I actually did that photoshoot with Parks and WBM) <BR> <BR>Anyway, I really wouldnt compare this too much with any other item. This isnt for multi rider use or anything, it is specifically for flying. The concept started almost ten years ago with our deck tubes, and has evolved into the current kite tube. We have had several riders "fly" our deck tubes, but they are nowhere as stable or efficient as the Wego. Also, it dosent take very long to get the hang of it, most riders fly on their first run. Guys like Bonifay are a given, but we also had an 205 pound intern from World Pub on that same shoot that flew just as well in less than 10 minutes. <BR> <BR>Its definatly a neat item, it will be interesting to see what everyone thinks of it come summer.

Hey Victor - Great vid by the way. Just curious if you could give me the info on the music that you all used for the vid. My friends and I are in the midst of buying one and would like to put some awesome music to our own vid that we make every summer. Please let me know if possible. Thanks!!!

think you guys are overeacting. just got to take it slow at first, ease into it. 100' rope might be a bit much though.

Im not really sure about the exact title and composer, but I know that when the video was being produced we had a huge binder of soundtracks to choose from. I believe that the music that is on our video is by the same composer that did the soundtrack from the reality boxing show "The Contender". <BR> <BR>I would also not recommend using anything longer than the supplied 65' rope.
