    I've posted previously about the double-wide hydrodynamic foils board I purchased a couple months ago.

    It immediately helped a beginner that had not figured out the hole shot with a regular board over many tries.
    Using same advice, but with the double wide board, she was able to get up and taxi almost immediately. Couple weeks later she is working on flying and has good control on left/right steering.
    About 8 days ago, a group was getting together for some riding. I brought the trainer board for 3 others to try it out. Two of the three got up reasonably well, one not as well. The one that struggled a bit had never been pulled behind a boat at all on anything more than a tube. The others had but were very happy with the immediate results.

    Yesterday had it out again for another beginner, some success but should injury prevented him from riding very long. He had unsuccessfully tried a regular ski a couple years ago and was able to get up and out of the hole with the hydrodynamic board setup.

    I have been looking for the best ways to help true first timers for a few years, this is it. It is a heavy pig to lug around but worth it for the smiles and pleasure of the new riders.

    while we have been using an original air chair tbar, seat and wings around this teaching board, wondering if it will be easy to take a spare cinch seat belt we have and somehow connect the swivel aspect of it to what is on the air chair. Currently the air chair belt goes through a metal bracket that is screwed on the underside of the seat tower on each side.

    Anybody know if a cinch can be added easily or are there parts I need to buy? While we have had success with the trainer board, we want to make the belt more comfortable for all.

    Nice!
    Give Lonnie a call if his product would work. I would hope he would take it back with full refund if he says yes and it doesn't?
