3-wheeler for beginners

I'm going to make a helper for the first - time beginners. Idea is an old one, but as I can't get any junk hydrofoil board I'll use those junior skis. Hope this could help people to stay longer afloat before they learn how to stear and keep the balance. Long rear ski ends could also eliminate the lift of the foil.

No jumps, Obbe, sorry. Riding will be really slow only! I had the same question to the US peole making this type of ski - what happens when somebody weighting 100 kg jumps and lands? It will be a really slow ride, the metal bars keeping it all together have to be small enough not to cause big drag.

I ordered this system from SkySki. When this Ponton-System here is, I post a few pics here.
