You have $25K burning a hole in your pocket and already have a new car or truck? Time to buy a Wavekat P70. It drives like a car with a standard steering wheel and an accelerator pedal. Able to perform 90º turns while continuing at high speed, the catamaran style layout allows this water go-kart to remain stable so you can put your foot down and power across the water at speeds of 35+ knots (65kph). The Wavekat is one of the most agile luxury water...

Remember the Dolphin Submarine by Seabreacher? Well they have been hard at work creating new designs from orcas, sharks, NASA jets, and my new favorite the Sailfish. Pictures are fine and all, but you gotta watch the video to really get how awesome this thing is. Start a collection for my birthday present please. ...

If you have ever been in a Tesla Model S you know that the touchscreen dash is an amazing piece of technology in itself. Apparently the engineers have a sense of humor and have added a hidden easter egg that changes the image of the Model S to a submersible. Video and “how to” after the break. ...

One of the worst things about being on any boat is the side-to-side roll. It just doesn’t sit well with the brain and is a common cause of getting seasick. Our brains are pretty good at dealing with the front to back motion. Well there happens to be a fix for the side-to-side roll for boats from 30-feet to over 100-feet long. The fix comes in the form of a gyro-stabilized gadget that gets installed on, or near, the boats centerline. This gadget is called the SeaKeeper...

I love the fact that there are water enthusiasts/engineers who can take such a wild concept to actual production. The Quadrofoil makes it easy for anyone (anyone with $19,000 that is) to enjoy an electric hydrofoil. The Quadrofoil uses C-foil technology to lift the vessel above the water which means less resistance and the feeling of floating above the water surface. It also means you can go about 60 miles on a single charge...

The boat-less wakeboard trend continues to gain traction. The first two we saw were the JetSurf Board and the Wakeboarder Remote Controlled Tow Boat, both using gasoline for power. The newest entry in the boat-less wakeboard is the Radinn electric powered wakeboard which uses a lithium battery pack. Speed is controlled via a handheld remote and can travel...

No question that sailing on smaller boats is a blast, but it usually isn’t convenient. Not many folks live on a body of water they can sail on or have the ability to haul a boat to the water. The Tiwal 3.2 Inflatable Sailboat ($7,700) solves this problem with a small sailboat that fits in two bags and folds down in about 20 minutes. The Tiwal 3.2 is 10.5-feet long, has a 75 or 56 sq.ft sail, weighs just 111 pounds, and can carry to adults.

For those of you that don’t know I am a big guy who happens to love scooters. Not sure where that all started. Possibly from my younger years when the fastest mode of transportation available to us were scooters. Well, one of my favorite scooters, the Honda GROM battery died with just 450 miles on the odometer. I didn’t want to deal with the dealership and warranty process so I...

I want! We originally saw the Quad Ski in 2010 but it was still not in production. Looks like things have changed. You can now buy a Gibbs Quad Ski ($40,000) if you have that kind of money to throw around. The Quad Ski will do 45mph on land and/or water. The Quad Ski is powered by a 4 cylinder 1300cc 16 valve DOHC engine that powers the rear tires and a jet drive. Video of the QuadSki in action after...
