I just saw this online. Has anyone tried this? Maybe I could finally land a backroll with this. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/347520.jpg" alt="Upload">

i saw some guy doing that behind a jetski.. and he looked like white trash like that guy, but it did look kinda fun

I can tell you that it is totally not fun. It was a beating that i never want to try again. I wouldn't mind watching someone else go for a ride in it, but I don't think you will be smiling like that idiot.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>I might be a good thing to wear when trying new tricks though. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by ian30 on July 19, 2006)

My in laws brought one of those to Powell last year. I pulled my 17 year old nephew in it and after watching him take a beating, no one else was willing, including him. It just bobbed up and down and beat him to death. I kept thinking that maybe if I went faster or slower or if he pulled himself further into it or let himself slide out that it would get better, but it sucked no matter how we tried it. <BR> <BR>Didn't have the heart to continue it.

I once met a girl that was pear shaped like that... needles to say I didn't ask for her digits! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by attila916 on July 19, 2006)

The Sumo looks kind of like the Gyro, which is also made by Sportstuff. I know from experience that the Gyro is only fun if your the one in the boat watching some poor, defenseless kid taking an a$$ beating in it. Seriously, our family's Gyro has an 100% casualty rate, that is that nobody has ever come out of this thing without bleeding, an black eye, and/or mysterious scratches or bruises. I would under no circumstance recommend this tube to anybody. Stay away from it unless you enjoy spitting blood out of your mouth!
