I have to admit, I have become somewhat obsessed with getting footage of me pulling somebody behind my 18. The "Sharing the wind" video really inspired me.

I have towed kayakers, and my son on a cheap Boogie board, that board is no good, we need something better then I will post the video here. There is a video of mine on youtube showing him.

Below is my best attempt yet, towing Angela on her SUP board. First attempt, vey choppy water on Lake Huron, and decent but mild wind. More to follow.
We are working our way up to daggerboarding.

Below is the link for the video:

Still trying to get the video to show right here, anyway enjoy, comment.

Kneeboards are ok... you just need 20knts of breeze.

moncasta

I like it. Yes I think wakeboard will also work, and with good wind as you say.
Unfortunately I don't know anybody with a board, and no point me buying one, because I will have to sail the boat.

If there is anybody in the Toronto area that has a board, and want to try it, please let me know.
