Boatless Wakeboarding? Not a cable park

Wonder if you could build one for what a new boat cost these day?

Cool, Where's the actual footage of a rider using it?

Exactly what I kept thinking... Great idea, but, not even a single image of a real one?

Great Idea...Looks like that's all it is at this point an idea. I could see this costing a cool couple of mill easy

I believe this is currently a concept. Looks like it would cost about the same as a flow rider.

Aren't flow riders like 6 inches deep or something...miss a trick and you're landing on your head. I think it's soft material but still. With that, looks fun and I'm not doing inverts so why not.

6- 125hp submersible pumps! I would love to be the electrician on that job. The service would have to be 1200a 480v with GFCI protection. The amount of power required to run this feature is enough to make it not portable. Dura and I could retire after building one of these.

Yeah, it kind of seems like a similar concept to the flow riders already in amusement parks. I've ridden a couple and to be honest it doesn't really simulate surfing very well. There's no "push" of a wave, it's just water being blown underneath you with a hill behind you. It's fun, but not like surfing fun. Just my thoughts. Maybe I'll put one in my backyard and you all can try it. Hunt and Dura already volunteered to do the electrical :)
