'Snow Surfster': Sledding for Boomer bodies

It cushions you from the elements.


So maybe sometime this winter you'll get the hankering to go outside and do something after all--or maybe the batteries will run out on your RC snowmobile toy . Either way, you might wish there was a way to enjoy the snow in repose, just as you do in your summertime activities .

Herrington may have the answer with its "Snow Surfster," an inflatable sled that promises to make you feel like a kid again while cushioning Boomer-aged bodies from harsher elements. While its Durantex shell provides durability, according to the product description, molded EVA runners on the bottom give it Segway-style control just by leaning.

The best part, from our slothful perspective, is that the 46-inch-long Surfster deflates in seconds and can be carried easily, unlike old-fashioned toboggans that need to be lugged back up the hill.
