Glad to see someone else enjoying these amazing inflatable tunnels. Most Americans have never seen one, although it's a huge spectator sport in South Africa, New Zealand and Austrailia. I know they've been on Real TV, Ripley's, Baywatch, and the new Croccodile hunter movie. Racing in the surf over big breakers is what draws the crowds. We need to pioneer that here as the APBA has already demoted us back to a specialty class. Used to called Super ultra light tunnels. We hope to participate in several poker runs this year in New Jersey, care to join us Jolley? We also hope to make the Topinbee longhaul, I think it's Sept. this year, if it doesn't get cancelled. We are the US master distributor for Xtreme Inflatables, South Africa. Many people feel that our Predator represents the finest example of this type of boat in the world today. Check out our gallery for some incredible air shots. Email us for a free video or a demo ride. Our website is under construction.
Here's our boat:

I took a ride in a 13' Bullett with the builder around 1983, could that have been you? Amazing little boat! Built rock-solid. I don't know if it would hold up to the punishment these surf racers put the boats thru year after year.
You gotta hang on tight!

In 1983, it was probably Tom DeAngelis for whom I worked side by side with. The boats are great and do hold up. At least mine did...

Here's my buddys kid's boat, DUX HammerHead, with a 50, pumped up to 70 hp, Great boat for a 12 year old, just upgraded 2 weeks ago to this one, this kid will go down in racing history some day, loves boating, smart, and knows how to drive a tunnel boat, the real ones and the blow up ones.
