HO RAD 5 Foot
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' 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' RAD disc or the Fun Aqauatic Device (FAD board). The riding possibilities are endless. Fun for all ages, the FAD and RADs are guaranteed to turn some heads on your lake this summer.
RAD & FAD TECHNOLOGY
Drop Stitch is a pretty amazing material we're using to create the RADs and FAD. This material allows us to build inflatable items that can be inflated to optimum rigidity while delivering the most durable inflatables we've ever offered. This innovative material is called Drop Stitch and is achieved by joining two pieces of support fabric together with thousands of fine polyester thread lengths. Each thread is spaced evenly and all threads are the exact same length. Next an air-tight coating is applied to the top and bottom of the support material to ensure an air tight seal. The result is Drop Stitch Construction. Drop Stitch construction is capable of achieving levels of pressure equal to 20 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch).
SOFT, NYLON HANDLE
A single pull strap found on the RAD+ and dual handles on the FAD used for steering when the handle is docked in the handle hook.
MACHINED EVA TRACTION PAD
For unsurpasses traction - your feet won't be sliding around with this traction pad underneath tem. Found on both RADs and on the FAD board
Use the included hand pump with PSI pressure gauge tp achieve your desired level of inflation. These items are capable of holding up to 20 PSI
Put your handle here for hands free starts or use it to dock the rope when pulling smaller children who may not have the grip strength to hold the handle during towing. Pro tip- use both hands when placing or removing the handle in the hook.
