Default Manta Ray towable...

Have you all seen this thing? Its SICK!! Tim & Penny at SML picked one up last week for use behind their Sea-Doo jetboat, (yes, the one that I was spotted driving.) Blue By You/Jim, myself, Todd, and couple others were brave enough (read: stupid) to get on this thing at 50mph behind the jetboat. I had a good 6+ feet of air a few times and Jim rode well into the afternoon when the breeze picked up and was able to see 12+ feet of air, and airborne for upwards of a 1/4 mile at a time. If you get the chance to get on one, do it. Its a rush!

Yes they look kewl
Less they are dangerous
Just watched a brief on the local news how a lady out on Mem weekend broke her back riding one similar.
Thing took off like a plane, she flew out and landed on her back

All I have to say is be carefull, damn I hate getting old.
10 years ago I would be the first to ride that puppy at any speed
