That is sharp love to see how it would work out doors in a light breeze bet you it could just hang there like a seagull in a wind.

Ya nothing worse then being on the beach and taking a direct hit form a seagull. My son got bombed once should of seen the look on his face. All I can say was priceless.

Wonder how much that would cost if they decided to market it.
