Glide Across the Water in an Aqua Skipper

The Aqua Skipper may look like some bizarre scooter hybrid but this contraption will have you gliding across the water like a bug. You balance yourself on the Aqua Skipper and sort of bounce up and down and it propels you across the surface of the water at speeds up to 17 mph. It’s just like a human powered hydrofoil! It’s made of lightweight aircraft aluminum (26 pounds in total) which combined with the fact that it’s above the surface of the water, allows it to be the fastest human powered vehicle in the water. Check out the video to see how it works:

Now it’s definitely not cheap but it’s a fun method of transportation and can you really put a price on that? Ok, you can. But still.
