Lack of depth
Replication of the lip/curl of a wake
I can't be the only who cuts deeper than this flowing water will be. When I cut, my edge is 4-5 inches underwater. As stated above, casing the wake, losing the handle, under/over rotating all sound terrible if you're landing on an airbag that has to be firm enough to support running water. I too have given this idea some thought after seeing flowriders and the like, but in reality it just doesn't sound like something that would appeal to an advanced rider, though the video didn't really make an effort to do so. As much as I like falling while strapped in and then getting jetted off the back of a raised platform into water that isn't deeper than I am tall, I'm gonna pass on this one.
