This video features a 'Manta Ray' which appears to be a cross between waterskiing, jetskiing, and parasailing. There is an inflatable wing shaped 'Manta Ray' which is pulled by a waterskiing boat. The Manta Ray is shaped with 'wings' on either side of where the rider stands in it. The wings catch air and it lifts off from the water so it is flying like a kite behind the ski boat. The disclaimers on the video are pretty funny as they state something to the effect that the people in the video are professionals and riding the Manta Ray is tough. It goes on to say that you shouldn't fly it higher than you are willing to fall. All the crazy 'sports' come out of Australia don't they?
