We have tried to find them, but rave discontinued them. Only info we could find was on an European Rave site.

they were over-priced and LAME. Rails need to be longer. and the longest one was bouncy. everytime yo0u got on it it bounced you off. the wakes also through them off everytime you drove by b/c they are inflatable. just my .02

You guys just dont know how to set them up properly, the key is in the bungee on ONE end and getting the lines tight. As far as wind goes you have to go "with" the wind, when set up well they work GREAT (=not lame) for LEARNING and until you can 270 on to a 30 ft Rave all ways you havent outgrown it.

I do agree the 80 footer didnt work, but the 40 ft works great.

Here is a shot of my 30 fter, only one I have and we all have lots of FUN (I think thats the point) one them. They are overpriced, but worth every penny of 500 bucks and you can find them for that.

kellen,
is that just one of those banana tubes w/ pvc piping on it.. how stable is that.. looks like a definite way of beating the high priced Raves

Yeah, i think its either a 5 or 6 seater, its fun but still way too short. The biggest problem with it is when coming off the end it dips, other than that its cool.

Ethan, those things are costly too. A 5-6 person one is around $700+ new. They make some that seat 7 or more and cost over a grand.

I got slaughtered one time on a rave by the wholes in the side of the PVC. Not to say I havent killed myself on wooden sliders, but it destroyed my arm.

kellen how did you get those PVC pipes to stay on top of that tube, and about how much did is cost you for all of that?
Old    Kellen Ringen (kel_dub)      Join Date: Feb 2006       04-17-2007, 9:40 PM Reply   
The tubes are equally spaced with notched pieces of Trex (i think that is what its called)and screwed together by drilling through the outside of the pvc and bolting it to the trex from the inside. The spacers are placed so that they can be tied to the tube's grab handles and secured tightly. I didn't actually build it so i'm not sure of the cost, minus the tube i'd say the materials were under $50.
