The folks at Gibbs Sports Amphibians sure have been busy. As if their QuadSki wasn’t enough awesomeness they now have a motorcycle version, The Biski starts off as a motorcycle with a BMW engine then straps on a powerful water jet. I am sure it isn’t that simple, but that is how I imagine it. Video of the Biski motorcycle jet-ski after the break. ...

Just like chocolate and peanut butter. Take two good things and put them together and you have the NightSUP.  A solid stand-up paddleboard made better with LED lighting. Paddling at night is not only safer but also cooler and gives an impressive view. The LED lit stand-up paddleboard will illuminate the water from between 10 to 40 feet depending on water clarity. Perfect for viewing sea life. A complete board will cost you

If you are a loner who loves fishing, check out the Ultraskiff. It is one of the strangest shape boats that I have seen. Because, let’s be honest, a round boat isn’t exactly the best shape for ripping through the water. But, technically, that isn’t what the Ultraskiff ($1,595 with free shipping) is about. It is about fishing. All about fishing. Tons of storage and a virtually unsinkable design. If you get a fish on the line and it decides to take a crazy path around...

Sign me up! The Seabob Cayago F7 is a bit like an underwater jet ski. It has 734 Newtons of thrust, am impeller jet system, 10 gears, and a top speed of 12 mph. My biggest fear after watching the videos is the fact that you look just like a seal ripping through the water. In other words, shark bait. Video of the Seabob Cayago F7 after the break. ...

Remember the Hot Tug? Get your mind out of the gutter, it is a small boat with a built in stove/hot tub. Well it now has a more grown up looking friend built by two Seattle, WA marine carpenters. This boat is powered by an electric motor while the heat for the hot tub is created from an integrated diesel-powered boiler. The boat only drafts 20-inches, even when filled with 2,100 lbs of water and six adults. Pretty cool.

What looks to be a gadget from IUT-Brest Morlaix in France comes a pretty slick two person pedal powered hydrofoil. Hard to tell how hard those two guys are working but this is one of the most stable human powered hydrofoils I have seen. ...

The Tetra-POD is a handy little work/storage trailer that can be towed behind a car or ATV. Perfect for hauling anything from debris to your gear. That alone is not super amazing. In my best infomercial voice – “But that’s not all…”. The Tetra-POD lid opens and connects to the lower portion of the trailer creating a boat. More details, pictures, and video after the break. ...

DC Shoes has been behind some pretty epic stunts and videos. Their latest video puts Robbie “Maddo” Maddison on a modified dirt bike that he rides on water. Specifically some monster waves in Tahiti. The dirt bike has a rear paddle tire and platforms that surround each tire. These platforms provide enough surface area to plane over the water with the rear wheel providing the propulsion. The video is amazing but I would love to see some of the crash videos. Hope they make it out eventually. ...

A families passion to design and build a folding boat they could fit in their car for trips to the water has created another Kickstarter campaign. The boat, named Origo, is built by Jure Dolinšek and his two sons Luka and David. The Origo folding boat ($990 – $2,500) goes from a bunch of pieces to a competed boat in around 10-15 minutes. It can be run by oars, electric/gasoline motors, or even a sail. Read on for details. ...

The Ghe-O Rescue comes to us from Romania and is bigger than it looks. Heck, at first glance it looks like a modified Hummer H1. It isn’t. This monster truck is over 17-feet long and weighs 6400-pounds. It can carry 11-passengers, it can float with additional tire air bags, has optional tank tracks, and up to 500hp. Video of the Ghe-O Rescue vehicle in action after the break.
