Any surfers or snowboarders on the site will appreciate this. I think it looks pretty slick.

Pretty Cool !!!

Would like to see a means of placing or mounting the golf bag on the back of the board.

Mainly for safety and it would make the product more feasible to ride for many.

A tumble could lead to injury and or, damage to clubs with the clubs over the shoulder.

It would also give the person better reaction to regain balance under situations.

The other thing which would occur on occasion, if it could be designed to have a dual feature of becoming a pull cart when required to travel over certain terrain or up steep inclines, etc.

Thanks for sharing.

Cool product, would definitely attract the younger generation of golfers.  I can definitely see Rickie Fowler on it, not so sure about Phil.  As for use at regular clubs, I see too much potential for abuse and injury.  Some guy throws his staff bag on his back, hops on, hits a hill or pot hole too fast and launches himself.

@newtogolf - I don't see where the potential of abuse and injury is any greater than for a cart. If it was left to you would you outlaw these because you think they are unsafe? Maybe we ought to stop trying be protect us from ourselves because none of us is smart enough to do it.......

I'm terrible at snowboarding, but I actually think it looks kind of fun. Is it designed for goofy only though? The guy in the first video was using it right-foot-forward.

"Don't attempt to jump sandtraps, even if it seems tempting..." :-D

I would definitely use this product! (with the bag holder and handlebar, with dual cup holders mounted).

Golf and boarding at the same time, who would have thought? :-) :-) :-)

My reaction as an ex skater, snakeboarder and snowboarder?

"Wow that looks really very cool; I'd happily... $3495?!?!? Are you INSANE?"

But from the perspective of a golf club adding these to existing carts for members to hire I see the appeal. :-)

My guess is it will come down, but I figured it's the golf courses that would purchase them.

As a former skateboarder, absolutely. I'd take it over a golf cart any day. Is it worth that much? No.

I don't see any straps...I assume you can just switch stances at any time.

Yeah - falling off a plank with wheels isn't going to be added to them.  If I ever was to get a standup cart, I'd have a Segway.

    • How long should my ball test be?
      Just wanted some thoughts on how long I should test each ball Im considerring. What is a good sample size. 9 holes, 18 or even longer?
    • Question on Twitter: Easiest Way to Shoot Lower Scores in a Week
      What I have learned as I have improved and keep reading about in Bob Rotella's books is that the best way to shoot the score of your life is to focus on practicing the short game, but mostly developing confidence in your putting. Since most of our strokes consist of the short game, by getting just a percentage better there it will translate to more overall success than anywhere else.
    • No Forearm Rotation - Biggest Swing Flaw?
      @Golfer2223 what does forearm rotation have to do with the shoulders?-They are not connected. Forearms can rotate regardless of what the shoulders are doing.
    • No Forearm Rotation - Biggest Swing Flaw?
      Correct. For example: He also says that the forearms rotate during the backswing. Which we know that they do, and quite a bit. How much is too much? On the left, below in both images, is his depiction of zero rotation: On the right, in both images, he demonstrates nearly 90° of turning at the wrist. based on what I know, little of this comes from the upper arm - the majority of it comes from the forearm. Do you disagree with any of that, @Golfer2223? Notice one thing, then, too please. On the left, the plane of the left wrist is pretty much parallel to the sagittal plane. On the right images, it's perpendicular to it. What do we find at the top of the backswing of the game's best players? The issue now appears to be simply trying to determine what in the world you mean by the bold above, particularly because there's really nothing "natural" about the golf swing. What feels natural to you, or seems natural to you, is definitely not natural to all or possibly even the majority of golfers. in my experience I've learned that you can't really talk about the golf swing in terms of what's "natural" or not. The truth of the matter is that for golfers who do this the right amount "naturally" then it simply isn't something we talk about in a lesson. For golfers who do it an improper amount, it may or may not be their priority. Here's a wrist graph from AMM for a very, very good golfer. Note that the wrist (blue line, top left) starts with 50° of supination. It pronates, relative to the upper arm, to a position of 16° pronation at the top. That's a pronation from 50° on one side of the zero mark to 16° on the other side - a pronation of 66°. This doesn't even account for how much the upper arm rotates - the forearm has rotated 66° from the setup position. (Note that above when I said 25° or 32°, that was relative to totally neutral, not to the setup position. The forearms rotated quite a bit more than the 25-32° cited, because they started somewhat supinated.) This graph and these numbers are not unusual. Look, @Golfer2223, it's somewhat incumbent upon you to be clear in what you're saying. It's far from ideal to say things like how you expect to see "zero forearm rotation" (or whatever) but then to claim that it's "relative to the natural shoulder motion" (obviously both paraphrased). Nobody has a clue what you mean by the "natural shoulder" whatever, and many would disagree that anything in this topic area is "natural" to begin with. So, please clarify what you're saying, and be precise and use specific words, or at least define them, provide examples, or both.
    • Best Shot of the Week
      Teeing of on Northdale #7 a short par four 336 from white tees. There is a pond water hazard about 235 or 240 ahead covering a lot of right hand side. Left hand is a small area and high trees to carry. Hit driver and blasted it, carried trees on left hand side and must have gotten a good cart path bounce. When we drove up was 50 yards from center of green. That's a loooong drive for me. Longest yet.
