Go to the army surplus store and ask them if they have the repelling bungee's. Take 3 long strands of it and tri braid it and then connect it with a handle, about 3/4ths the way up from the end that anchors have an off shoot of a double braided bungee that ends in another handle that way you can have 2 people pulling. At the end that anchors find a way to attach a caribeaner or something to lock it into whatever is pulling you. It's actually a real simple concept if you just look at it and shouldn't have an issue making it.

Thank you for replying, will the repelling bungee be strong enough to accelerate me (140 lbs) and how long should each piece be as the braid will take away some length.

All I know is we used that bungee to build a pumpkin catapult and it launched a 15lb pumpkin 180 feet. You're going to have to figure things out yourself.
