Surf's up--even without the waves

Motorized board hydroplanes at 25 mph


Die-hard surfers, rejoice. You needn't fret the effects of global warming or other elemental obstacles any longer.

With the "Hydroglider," a motor-powered board from Inventist, you can get you can rip to your heart's content under just about any aquatic conditions--with or without waves. Coolest-Gadgets says a hourlong charge provides enough power for two hours of shredding goodness.

"Powered by a quick-charge, high-torque electric motor, Hydroglider's patented design has a wing that lifts the surfboard and you up out of the water, greatly reducing drag and allowing you to achieve speeds up to an exhilarating 25 miles per hour," Inventist says.

Depending on where you're planning to shoot tubes, there may be one more piece of equipment to consider: the "Shark Shield" repellant. Other than that, cowabunga!
