Before wakeboarding was invented, watersports pioneers of the 1960’s experimented with objects to ride behind the boat. Some of the more successful riding devices were wooden discs. Grandpa would take a piece of plywood to his woodshop and cut it into a circular shape. The family would take turns discing” in between water ski sets.
It was a great way to introduce people to riding behind the boat without the learning curve associated with waterskiing. 50 years later, we’ve combined the nostalgia of the past with the advanced materials and construction methods of today to give you the all new RAD discs and the FAD board. The Round Aquatic Devices (RADs) allow anyone, regardless of skill level, to participate in a day behind the boat.
Everyone is guaranteed to get up on the 5′ (152.4 cm) RAD+…you can put the handle in the handle hook, sit, stand or kneel, and away you go. For a more advanced ride, or once you’ve mastered the RAD+, try out the smaller 3′ (91.5 cm) RAD disc or the Fun Aquatic Device (FAD board see SKU: HOSFB). The riding possibilities are endless. Fun for all ages, the RADs are guaranteed to turn some heads on your lake this summer. Boards are equipped with machined EVA traction pads for a secure and non-slip feel for the feet. Each RAD comes with pull-up straps for easy boarding from deep water and handle hooks for hands free starts/rides. Dual handles allow steering of the RDA when the tow rope handle is in the handle hook.
