I thought that too, until they posted a picture of it on Facebook.

It should be the kind that you ride away from.
You should see the people flopping around like turtles on their backs, it's so time consuming.

Not being able to ride it out creates huge waiting times. Even if you wiped out, if the barrier wasn't there it would carry you away from the landing zone so the next guy could go.

This was I think my 2nd or 3rd jump, my last 3 jumps I was able to land & ride right into the big orange barrier. If they had bought one of the ones displayed on Katal's web site, you would be able to ride away.

It's definitely cool, but not near as cool as it should be.
