I want one so bad but I think it would paint my like a killer whale, I think it would look a lot better.
And you do you think i can get one with a rope attachment so i can wakeboard and tube behind it.

^^ the Japanese might chase you around if you do. Haha (don't take it seriously. Im jap)

Its pretty cool, more for fun then anything thou. I wonder if it can actually go under water, not just the nose.

If only Queensland had snow...

Lifes pretty straight without drifting.

I don't get why is there so much excitement about those ?

I just wonder how they manage engine spins when it jumps out of the water..

I'm underwater, I'm underwater, BAM I'm a shark leaping into the air!  Looks like fun. :P  The turning radius on that looks incredible.  Certainly a toy for big kids.

There's so much excitement because they that looks like an AMAZING good time.  Like someone else said, it's a jetski with a roof that can go underwater.  Hell yes.

Turning radius doesn't look that great to me...not much of a top end, either.  Actually, the only thing it really does is tip side to side, bury the nose slightly, and jump a tiny bit.  I'm just not that impressed by this thing?  Jetskis looks like way more fun.

That thing is amazing!! How fun would it be to dive it deep, run up to a crowd of surfers, and jump out crazy high.  Surfers running for their lives!  But seriously....that would scare too many people.  Austin Powers laser beam is much funnier

Hmm, they start at $65,000.  So 70% off would be $19,500.  I still wouldn't be able to justify it.  Pretty awesome though and maybe they'll start showing up on Ebay for dirt cheap...  (Yea right)

I looked around and those people are the same people who produced that dolphin version a few months back. This is an improved version with shark week inspiration also 266hp.

Haha this reminds of me when Kyle's dad gets plastic surgery in South Park.  Wish I could find a video, but the searches only bring up the "F*** you Whale and F*** you Dolphin!" episode.

Edit: haha found the end result, but couldnt find a video of when he was swimming with them.
