We...(adult male and female, 19 yr. old male and female) all tried using this product with little success. The accompanying video makes it look so easy, but it is far from that. However my biggest complaint is with how cheaply it is made. Nearly every yellow piece of plastic has cracked and/or broken off. I even spoke with someone at "[...]" who claimed to be the inventor of this thing. He said originally it was all aluminum however people were having to replace major aluminum pcs. when they bent. So they put these cheap (his words) plastic pcs. on so that people would only have to replace the plastic when THEY broke. He said they will break when, for example, the aquaskipper hits the bottom of the lake with rocks/stones, or it hits the dock. He said it is very hard to use so people are in fact going to sink to the bottom when learning to use it. He said the plastic pcs are inexpensive ($7.20 plus S&H for the little front yellow piece - a broken one makes this product inoperable.) He also said they have sent out "hundreds" of yellow pcs to replace broken ones. My comment to him was that when someone pays hundreds of dollars for an item, they expect it to hold up through normal use. These plastic pcs are breaking off during normal use. They are cheaply made and do not hold up. His response was that they made them cheap on purpose, so that they'd cost "a few dollars" to replace. So if you plan on investing in one of these contraptions, plan on replacing most if not all of your plastic pcs. regularly. Guaranteed they will break. I heartily agree with the previous post. Save your money.

I tried very hard to learn. It's quite difficult if you don't have someone who knows to explain to you the feeling and correct you while you try.
Video won't help, it's a bit missleading actually. Instructions are not enough to understand what to do.
What saved me: a phone call to an expert and someone else on site that did much better than I and who got the trick quite quickly.
You need feedback from a trainer who can understand what's wrong with the way you do it: film yourself and send the video to the expert if you're on your own.

Before succeeding in going arround and back, I've made more than 300 attempts in 8-9 days, and each time I needed to swim back to shore and pull out the aquaskipper, lift it on the rock above the surface. Faith matters.

Now I just want to do more aquaskipping, I can't wait holydays to do more.

It's great fun, I like it a lot.

I guess I can teach the basics to other people, but I'm far from the expert level, it's a long way.

Get in shape: when you learn there's nothing more cardio. In less than 30s my heart maxed BPM like crazy and lungs where short of air. That's the limiting factor, not the legs power. Legs do not get tired that much, arms neither.

Once you know aquaskipping, going straight is like running (not a sprint but more than jogging). And turning requires up to twice that power !

My warning: you can easily hurt yourself, be careful. And never go near swimmers.
Advice: dress like a windsurfer, with shoes, and wear some light buoyancy jacket (or lifejacket).

6 years ago my aunt bought an aqua skipper for our lake house. It took multiple days of trying (our lake is cold so our tries were short) before one friend got it enough to return to the dock. Once the first person had it the skills were transferable and now we can get any determined person to at least feel like they have success on their first day. The big trick is learning the feel of the glide (as in try gliding and don't even try to jump the first few times on the aqua skipper until you know the feel of the point of certain sinking and learn to jump just before it).

Now, those who've kept at it can do most of the tricks in the videos. We'll often go out to circle around a passing boater. We can even skip through waves (which we didn't think possible at first as they would always sink us). I'm sure people with warmer water could learn faster.

The limiting factor now is how long I can keep jumping. 300 yards is about my current max distance.

Yes, it took about 1/2 a day to learn how to use the AquaSkipper. You have to jump - really hard on the platform. But then it was a lot of fun, and a great whole body and cardio workout. I like that it doesn't use any noxious gas that pollutes the water. My Uncle has one too and since boats and jet skis are banned in the lake near his house, the AquaSkipper is perfect for him. After one summer of almost daily use by kids and adults, none of the plastic is broken. I don't use the tips on the end; they're not needed, and the box came with an extra skimmer, that's still sitting there. We're using a dock that is about 4 feet deeper than the recommended 6 feet. That probably helps. Looking forward to more fun with it once all this snow melts!

good work out not from riding, rather towing back to dock once a stall occurs. there is no recovery when your bounce gets out of sync. Since water starts are not an option, one is left towing this awkward thing back to shore. Great way to look like a fool & clutz.
