Solid Rocket Powered "Surf" Board Named Jeff

Stand on it, push the launch button and try to keep your balance as it accelerates to 3, 4, 500 mph.
  [vote for,

This would be done on water like regular surfing but aimed away from land for obvious reasons.

Once the rocket underneith the board is ignited, you'd ski on the water for a few seconds before taking off, (the board would be aerodynamically designed for flight more than surfing,) and you'd see how long you could control the thing before getting knocked off by the wind hitting you at 60, 120, 180 MPH etc, crouching, maneuvering, praying.

The competition aspect of this would be top speed and distance. Winners get a trophy and free medical care for life which they're probably need after hitting the ocean at 350 mph.

Totally different because mine's named Jeff.

       I'm guessing that's not an initialism, that's the sound you make when you see I've posted an idea.

       Nope, it's from the help file as a way to tag something as unoriginal, by pointing out it has been featured in some other media. ("wasn't that cool" link)

       Congratulations, everybody needs a purpose in life to give it meaning eh?   

       //Nope, it's from the help file//   

       See link. (again)

       Yes, (and again) the witty repartee makes it all worthwhile.
