Re: Well.. maybe they can wash the deck..

Jetski's have always seemed like they would be fun for a season, or a month, and then it would get tiring. Have you ever noticed the resale on these things?

This seems to me like a way to make your Jetski fun for another couple of hours...

Maybe I am being anthropomorphic, but I see the riderless Jetskis running at full throttle, but not moving, and it seems to me kind of sad....

Are we watching the same video? This seems unique and exhilarating to me. Not at all the same as jet skiing (which can also be exhilarating, but is not what the video is about.)

Yep... different strokes for different folks.

I don't own a Jetski, and probably never will. That does not mean that others don't like 'em, they're just not for me.

Agreed. I'm sure there are plenty of people who talk about what a waste of time sailing is too.

Re: Well.. maybe they can wash the deck..

These things look like they would be fun as part of say a weekend vacation on the beach. Kind of like a Jet ski, I could see renting one, but not owning one, though I did have one for a while. The Ski I had was not mine, but it was stored at my place and I had the only vehicle to get it to the water. So it was essentially mine, and the rent was to be able to take it out when I wanted. But it was an old school stand up and not a lot of fun on the Hudson River.

Probably, but they're idiots.

It would be a great way to experience an old time jet pack without almost certainly getting killed.
