Video: JetSkiShop.com Puts Two Models & JetPilot’s Slingshot Towable Through The Ringer


jss1

We can always count on the crew from Queensland, Australia’s JetSkiShop.com to provide some fun, top notch video footage from their weekly exploits (seriously, when are these guys actually working?). Recently, the JSS team were preparing for another weekend edition of their “Breakfast Club” rides by trying out some new toys for everyone to enjoy.

One toy in particular was JetPilot’s new Slingshot Towable. Although not entirely revolutionized for the new year, the two-seater raft does feature a very cool GoPro mounting point that also is adaptable for all POV cameras available today. Made from a heavy gauge PVC bladder wrapped in an equally heavy-duty full nylon cover with zipper, the Slingshot features thick double-webbing foam handles with padded knuckle guards, pull-up straps for easy re-boarding, and a self-bailing drain vent.

With two very fetching models as the weekend’s guinea pigs, JetSkiShop’s James Tod did his best to whip the two girls loose of the raft through some pretty wicked handling. Thankfully, the Slingshot’s reinforced, quick connect tow hook held up to the challenge a whole heck of a lot better than the models’ grip on the raft. There’s a bit more footage expected to come out of this past weekend’s product testing but we wanted to pass along this fun film reel as we’ve all experienced the blend of elation, exhaustion and sheer terror at being on the tail end of the whip.
