Cool! Have you tried it on any other surfaces yet? (over water?)

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.
