Summer is here and you defied the recession woes just to spend a day (or two) at the beach with your family. You like to have fun on the sea, but jet skis are expensive to purchase. If you have an extra $500, perhaps you should have the AquaSkipper.

This water vehicle has a patented design that uses hydrofoil wings and fiberglass spring to let you glide along the water by simply hopping onto the AquaSkipper. The hydrofoil wings have very little drag in the water, while the aircraft aluminum frame just weighs 26 pounds. The AquaSkipper can run up to 17 miles per hour and even carry a person up to 250 pounds.

The AquaSkipper can only be started from above the water’s surface, like a dock or a boat, and it moves as long as you hop on it. You can ride a wave or jump on the platform and it can glide for a while before you realize you are sinking into the water because you did not jump soon enough. Still a lot of fun, and even funnier summer memories, if you ask me.

The AquaSkipper watercraft is available at Gadgets and Gear. Some assembly required.
