Oh great. Another form of jet-ski to run into us.

This will definitely appeal to the inland lake crowd. Very similar to the early standup jet skis. Lets face it windsurfing gets good when conditions at the beach are miserable for the average user. Thats why us and the kiters are the only ones around. I'm not worried.

You should be worried. Every year a windsurfer (or 2, or 3)gets pegged by a jet-ski at Lake Isabella, one of your "inland lakes", and one of the more reliable windsurfing spots in SoCal. Some of those jet-skiers LIKE the high winds for the ramps it creates, and few are responsible riders.
