This is the latest jet powered super-toy from Franky Zapata.  He is the guy who created the Flyboard.  His latest gadget is the Hoverboard which works on the same principle but adds a board to stand on.   The Hoverboard is connected to a jet ski via a large hose and this provides the propulsion for the crazy tricks and airtime.  Hit the “continue reading” link below to...

Whether you are a boogie boarder, surfer, or Stand Up Paddle Boarder (SUP) the WaveJet is something worth checking out.  Never has it been easier to catch a wave when surfing or go upstream while paddling SUP.  Read on for details, pictures, and videos of the WaveJet System.

If you have an aluminum boat or an inflatable boat that can take an outboard motor (Genesis or Zodiac style) you should pay attention to the new line of LEHR Propane Powered Outboard Engines.  The LEHR propane outboards can run off a larger propane tank with a hose-line or the smaller Coleman Propane Cylinders.  Imagine being able to...

They say "money can't buy happiness" but I've never seen someone on a jet ski frowning.  And now that jet ski feeling is even more affordable and portable thanks to the BomBoard. The BomBoard is smaller version of typical jet ski and is also modular, meaning you can take it apart and...

The smart kids at MIT are at it again.  This time they have created a self-contained autonomous robotic fish that is soft/squishy.  The fish moves by controlling the flow of carbon dioxide via an internal bladder.  This is done to allow the robotic fish to move very quickly, like the real thing.  See the soft robotic fish in action after the break. ...

This has to be one of the coolest personal watercraft/sailboats that I have seen in quite sometime.  Sure, parts of this technology are already being used by the 2013 America's Cup boats, but this one doesn't cost millions of dollars.  Brave folks can buy the Flying Phantom Catamaran for just under $40k and relatively easily transport...

The mobility of stand-up paddle boards isn't typically that great, they are just too long for most people to transport them easily.  Unless you have the modular Rum Runner SUP or the inflatable SUP from Current Drives. The inflatable stand-up paddle board from...

While stand-up paddleboards (SUPS) are all the rage these days I believe they would be more popular if they were easier to transport.  Imagine trying to lug around a 11-13 foot long SUP in, lets say, a Mazda Miata.  Not happening.  Well, not until later this spring if Point 65’s Rum Runner hits the market on time. The Rum Runner, by Point 65 of Sweden, is built to separate into three pieces for transport.  The Rum Runner SUP is 11.5-feet long for the shorter model and can be stretched by .3-meters with a longer middle...

If you are a lonely guy with about $17,000 in extra cash and like to ski/wakeboard, while I am sure there are more, here are two options.  You could buy a used boat for $15,000 and rent some friends and gear with the remaining $2,000.  Or, you could buy this Skier/Wakeboarder Controlled Tow Boat for the full $17,000.  The pictures don't...
