Well this is one of the coolest things i've seen in a while, not really practical for a day to day commute (unless you work at sea lol) but still incredibly neat.

I would love to play around with one of these.

That's brilliant!

I want to see every commuter in Venice using those.. Imagine the chaos!

I;m truly impressed, the dude driving it looked like he was having a whale of a time!

only if the machine can have compacted water/ice that can convert to water maybe u wouldnt need the hose behind it.

then again that still wouldnt be enough wouldnt it?

Wow! That's really clever.

I'd hate to get a foot caught it that stream, though. I bet the pressure would flay the skin right off your feet.

I remember hearing stories about WW2 submarines, where the oceanic pressure would fire a bolt out of the bulkhead like a bullet, and the resulting pressurized water stream could cut a man in half. Yikes!

My bad apparently you can buy one of these if you have enough money

Amazing, and a very good idea indeed!

* Thrust-to-weight (150-lb or 68 kg pilot, at takeoff): 2.3 : 1
* Measured top speed (150-lb or 68 kg pilot): 22 mph (35 km/h)
* Hose length: 33 ft (10 m)
* Flight ceiling (measured at feet level): 28 feet (8.5 m)
* Duration at wide open throttle (approx.) 1 hour

Now throw a sea serpent costume over the whole thing and take it to Loch Ness!

Wait, they don't have hunting rifles in Scotland, do they?
Nevermind, lol.

That looks like fun!

It definitely has a few more maneuvers than the normal jetski!
