My friend just got a few of us to go in on it, and it was the best $300 I've spent in a long time. Of course, now I have paid rights to go out in his boat
I agree though, if it were less expensive...it would definitely be more widespread. As for dropping the cash, my buddy spent a truckload on his boat, and all his other gear, so another $1500 in the grand scheme doesn't make that much difference. With the price what it is though, I hope it's not just rich folks getting to enjoy this thing, it's just too sick.
Also, I saw on their site today that it works behind a PWC? They're claiming 12' airs off a tiny PWC wake! Gotta try that.
