Yes, you read correctly.
Brazilian style man Renan “Crow” Faccini has gone and built himself a portable machine that will tow him into waves without the need for a jet-ski.
The invention – which he has dubbed “The Slasher” – looks to be based on the same idea as a winch but “faster and more powerful,” with Faccini saying it took two years to build.
“This machine is not your normal winch,” Faccini said.
“It’s faster and more powerful and with the Slasher you can do much more on flat days since it’s smaller than a jet-ski.
“You can fit it in the trunk of your car and take it on every trip. If the waves aren’t good it will save the day with big airs.”
Has Mr Faccini revolutionised the future of tow-out bodyboarding?
Will the invention catch on?
