I’ve always looked at vacations to be a time of relaxation and taking it easy, as opposed to drastically increasing my risk of bodily harm. Then again maybe all those beer/Gatorade ads are right and I’m just not living my life to the extreme.
It seems someone has decided to combine the thrills of being dragged around by a high-speed powerboat with the excitement of precariously hanging in the air and has come up with the Wego Kite Tube. When inflated the 10 foot diameter tube takes on a basic wing shape which is important since the whole thing is designed to either skim along the water’s surface or soar far above it. With an included tow rope that can extend to 65 feet in length there’s no doubt the Wego Kite will reach heights that will make many vacations memorable in one way or another.
The Wego Kite Tube is available from SportStuff.com for $599.95.
