    Yeah, I would think the price would come down after a bit, seems like you would be much more in control with an air board.
    If you could pick one up for around 79.00-99.00 instead of 250.00 I bet a lot more people would try it.

    They really need to get someone else to write their promotional info. Is this what you want to read before you stick your kid on one of these things?

    "On a large slope you keep going and going and the only hope you have of stopped is your feet and the hope for a nice, soft snow drift to back you up. Surely once airboards are developed more and more they will come out with more advanced ways to stop"

    The grammar is a little rough and I think they need to do a little fact checking:

    "Keystone is home to a Summit Elevation of 120,408 feet"

    At 20,000 feet you need an oxygen bottle, I thing at 120,000 feet .... you implode!!

    I'll stick to snow boarding.

    So it's kinda like sledding on an inner tube. Awesome!! I remembe being pulled on a innertube in circles by a fourwheeler. It'd take everything i had to stay on and if you got going fast enough you could get real air. Had to be careful not to flip or you'd go down HARD.

    I did that this summer, huge inner tube, and a pickup. I should have died, I rolled so many times, and lost a lot of skin. :haha:

    Do that very many times and we will have to change the first part of your user name to "dumb".

    Sledding in the snow is fun, and it is nothing like being drug behind a truck in he mud. But the last time I was on a mountain with a tube I damn near killed myself. Trees will stop you, but they make lousy brakes.
