    But where is the instructable????

    hey bro i know i might be ages for you to be on since LOL, but can i ask if you are able to show a video on how you made it please?

    Nice!!! Have u put it on a lake or something yet?

    Must be hard to steer, though it looks fun. :D

    Nice. Could you show how you built it? An 'ible would be nice.

    what did you use for the skirt

    a full build would be good :)

    I'm in Seattle and we are currently dominated by the snow. I tried it on snow but it was pretty powdery and the hovercrafts kept getting it inside. So i haven't yet but will soon. This is also the first version. I will be updating in the future.

    Very nice. well done =]
