    That raft actually looks like it`s designed to fly. It`s generally wing-shaped, and I bet the holes in the sides of it act as flaps, pushing the rear down and stabilizing the whole thing.

    Internet newbie is new. it`s an old internet joke camelnoise. Also, the raft was designed to do that, so it really wasn`t unexpected.

    "Redundant video title is a redundant video title"

    It`s a meme, I`ll show you later.

    Anyway, lol rad! Easy way to snap a neck though. If I ever got to ride one of them things I`d make sure there was a place for me to hold on with my feet also.

    I believe these rafts were made to fly and were quickly recalled shortly after being available for the public.

    Not bad but he`s lucky if he didn`t break his neck. I didn`t see him come up out of the water so they might`ve gone back and figured out he was on his way to the bottom.

    It`s not so much that people are stupid for riding things like that. You just have to know when to let go. He would have had a nice little free-fall but wouldn`t have bounced on his head.

    This raft is similar to the Wego Kite Tube, which was designed to fly, and they recalled it because several people died from landing on their necks like the guy in the video. And one can`t just let go because once one loses control of the tube one is at the mercy of the tube gods. And landing on the water would be much more fun than landing on the raft.

    Darn, he held on too tightly.

    I wanted to see him let go and go flying when the raft came down.

    VERY EXPECTED AND EXPECTED FOR THE SECOND TIME.
    THESE WERE DESIGNED TO GET HUGE AMOUNTS OF AIR. AFTER MANY PEOPLE WERE HURT, THEY WERE RECALLED AND ARE NO LONGER SOLD.

    THAT ONE WAS CALLED THE MANTA
