    The thing about waterboarding is that it works on everyone. Nobody can overcome the drowning reflex no matter how tough they think they are. No permanent physical or psychological damage, other than the memory of nearly drowning. Most everyone has had the drowning reflex kick in at one time of the other.

    It's a small board much like a short surf board, Most of them have depressions in them to help keep your knees in place, and also handles to hang on to. Now what the CIA and others do with them,,,,, well who knows. I sold my Searay Pachanga otherwise I would demo one for you. Pretty hard to hang onto at 70+mph., maybe we could get Tron to pull one behind while trolling ?

    nicky, you're thinking of kneeboards.

    waterboarding is a three-foot round disk of plywood, thrown on the run into very shallow water at the beach...then you jump on and ride it for about 40 feet. Was popular in the 1960's and seems to be coming back.
