Is This For Real?

If this is for real I wish I was about 30 years younger.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

Those are pretty wild. I would imagine they're not quite as easy to use and maneuver as the people in the video make it seem.

They also make a water-powered James Bond-type "jet pack" that you strap on your back. I think that would be more my speed: not as much balance involved.

Thats in the same catagory as wingsuit skydiving. Fun to watch, but I'm not going to try it. Imagine that board hitting you in the head when you make a mistake... Ouch!
