Do you like water-skiing but don't like the water? Do you like parasailing, but are afraid of heights? Now you can be dragged around at high speeds while remaining in your comfort zone!

It's called an AirChair folks...been around since 1988. Commonplace on every ski lake around. It's a blast to ride...jumps about 20 feet in the air, flips, tricks etc. Check out the video on their website. Pricey buggers too: $1500 to $2500! The patent is nothing new, just an expansion on previous ones by the original inventor back in '88.

looks like something that a person stuck in a wheelchair could use. you just would have to make sure that if you fall it would stay upright, so the person would not drown.

Wouldn't the rope pull the guy flat on his face?

How old is this patent? I've seen similar items being used for about 5 years. They are regulars at nearby lakes in the summer and are often on many very bad TV shows as well.

watch step into liquid, they saw off the chair and use it for hydro-planing surfboards to surf waves that are to choopy from the wind to surf on a normal board. has the potential for a 100ft+ wave
