    Looks safe!



    Wonder why it never made it into production!

    Can't believe that never took off?

    Looks fun and dangerous at the same time.

    Ok this look nuts but in fairness, I bet at least half of the people on this forum would try it (I know I would).

    Looks like a great way to eliminate some lake lice!

    I would guess this never made it into production because a parasail would be less expensive, easier to transport, fewer moving parts, less maintenance, and a lower chance of decapitation. While it looks like the Giroboat would have a higher degree of control from the rider compared to a parasail, it could probably not be easily justified for all the other reasons I stated. I would try it if I had the opportunity, but I would not buy it (like Drossiter would).
