Hahah I'll admit to it...Im a ghetto rider. I've been pulled behind my 4-runner in canals, retention ponds, you name it ive hit it. I works out nicely until A)The cops come B)Your car gets to close to the water and slides in or C) your ghetto handle breaks and slices your hand(see pic) We've had some sick set ups tho with little homemade sliders and junk.

HaHa nice one!.. The only evidence i got is on my mates (the driver) tape camera! its not exactly well shot either the guy filming (Aldo) got more footage of the sky and the ground than the riding! Kite surf teacher he may be! camera man he aint! . Will try get it converted + posted when i get mi hands on it.

Probs I had where:- Having to dig the car out the sand every other go (hire a jeep next time!) / My mate thinking thats it okay to tow this noobie at 30+mph in the sea! (never gona end pretty is it!) / 130ft of so called tow line that felt more like a bungee rope!

Aldo had a go on his kite board cos he couldnt get up on mine.. He surfed the the whole beach with me driving, his claim to fame as the first maritian on island to do it! Hehe he was all smiles!
