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.

This made me laugh.

Former skater here. Looks fun but I don't see a cooler or cup holders.

Good point!

@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.......

@clubrat - You obviously did not look at both videos. It comes with an optional bag holder.

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. :-)

... $3495?!?!? Are you INSANE?"

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.

    • Modern course design. Do they really expect us to walk these things?
      Thanks to Whistling Straits there is now a move in Wisconsin to build courses that are walking-only. Erin Hills, the site of the 2017 U.S. Open, has to be walked. http://erinhills.com/ And now, Ben Crenshaw is trying to re-create Bandon Dunes ... http://www.sandvalleygolfresort.com/      
    • 2016 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth
      Many years ago while on a business trip to London I got a chance to play Wentworth West - even back then in 1991 it was a tremendous course that made great use of the rolling woodlands in Surrey. Its a bit sad that the course has now become the architectural plaything of Ernie Els and the European tour - some of the holes now resort to certain modern tricks like artificial water features or shaved greenside banks leading to hazards or chipping areas - perhaps in the next round of changes Ernie and his design elfs will come a bit more to their senses and let the design return a bit more to the features that were there in the original HS Colt design. As far as the tournament goes, it seems like there is a real problem in terms of when to fit it in a place in the schedule where you can get the cream of the European tour to show up.  The Players Championship with its huge reward of 10 years of exemptions for the US tour makes it a bit more compelling as an event and the Nelson and Colonial and Memorial tournaments are all big events on the US tour leading up to the US Open so taking the two weeks time to travel over to England in the start of the summer is perhaps not something a lot of European pros who live in the US are willing to make.  Was exciting to see if Chris Wood was going to choke the event away but nice to see him win - he did have a great front nine but seemed on the verge of letting it get away on the back nine.

      Oh, good Lord! I can't believe that you entered such a completely off the mark reply! I thought you had some smarts. Valuable eyeballs? There are no such things! There are only eyeballs. Advertising rates are established on "number of impressions", in other words the number of people who see your ad. The only "value" established for those "eyeballs" is what age they are, what demographic they belong to. If you're seeking to market to a particular demographic, you might pay more to place an ad on "this" show rather than "that" show. And who said anything about "left and right"? You did! You used the phrase "industry supported research", which is a code phrase of the left to indicate research that is suspect! When have you ever heard "Entertainment Industry supported research", or "Actor supported research" in reply! And please don't try to tell me that government sponsored research is as pure as the wind driven snow. I've just realized that you may be confining your remarks to the field of physics. In that realm, they might be valid. Besides you, me, and a couple of guys behind the tree, who the hell cares? I'm referring more to "agendized" science, like climatology, nutrition, and prescription drugs. As for blind funding, that doesn't mean throwing money at any bunch of yahoos who cook up some hare brained scheme. All it means is that the people who are doing the research don't know where the money is.coming from. So they don't know who is buttering their bread! Let's face it, scientists are people, and they need to make a living. There was a line from "The Big Bang Theory" that, while fictional, makes real world sense. In one episode another physicist, Barry Kripke, is asked why he's still studying string theory. He says, "Hey, I study a theory that can't be proven, I apply for grants, and I spend the money on booze and broads!"
    • "Swing Machine Golf" by Paul Wilson
      I will apologize in advance if this post winds up being long. I went out for my first round of golf in 2015, shot a 110, went home, put my clubs on Craigslist, sold them within a day and decided to quit the game. I had been playing for 25 years but only felt I was getting worse. Then, while planning a summer trip to Las Vegas I stumbled upon Paul Wilson's golf videos. I watched a few and couldn't believe how simple he made the golf swing look. I picked up an extra driver from my garage, started trying to swing free and easy and went to the range 2-3 times a week to see if this method would really work. My first time out I shot 97. The second was a 92. The next was an 85. Then, I booked a pair of lessons with Wilson during my vacation. Long story short, Paul Wilson's teaching methods kept me from quitting the game. My handicap is down to an 11, and I am scheduled for two more lessons with him in July so I can confirm somebody who reads this forum is a Wilson disciple. While he can get pretty technical when describing his approach for me it's pretty simple - turn to the top, start the downswing with the lower body and let my arms swing loosely. I expect to break 80 for the first time in my life by the end of the year.               One more thing, which has been noted previously in this thread - if I get off track I immediately go to YouTube, que up a couple of Paul's videos and know exactly what I'm doing wrong. His web site is an incredible resource for me, and I assume it's the same for many others.
