THE BEST Swimming

Rope Swing Triple Flip

Rope Swing Triple Flip

Since it wouldn’t be summertime without someone shredding it on a rope swing by a body of water, check out Mike Wilson killing it on the Truckee River doing 60′ double and triple back flips.

Pool in the River

Pool in the River

We can only imagine the reason these guys built the Badeschiff swimming pool smack-dab in the middle of Berlin’s River Spree is because it’s too dirty to swim there. Or maybe it’s just looks cool.

Marina Bay Sands Hotel

Marina Bay Sands Hotel

The Marina Bay Sands development in Singapore is now open, at a cost of US $6 billion, and features a rooftop SkyPark and 492′ infinity pool perched high (650 feet) atop the 3 hotel towers. (Thanks Corey!)

Liquid Mountaineering

Liquid Mountaineering

We’re pretty skeptical about walking on water, what with that whole gravity thing, but the guys here don’t seem to care; they’re inventing the next new sport and calling it liquid mountaineering.

Illusion: Walking Underwater

Illusion: Walking Underwater

It might look like these people are all walking in this pool with their clothes on. But it’s an illusion, created by sandwiching water between two acrylic panels, and visitors walk under the liquid ceiling.

Star Trek Wetsuits

Star Trek Wetsuits

Although perfect for JJ Abram’s new, sexi-fied film, these 7mm Star Trek Wetsuits are styled after The Original Series; choose from Command Yellow, Science Blue, and Engineering Red.

H-Bomb Heated Wetsuit

H-Bomb Heated Wetsuit

No WMDs here, but the H-Bomb Heated Wetsuit makes cold water surfing downright balmy: it features back mounted, Li-ion-powered carbon fiber coils that act as heating elements.

Pool Party Seating

Pool Party Seating

We’re used to furniture in the pool after a windy day, but this Pool Party Seating is best kept wet: it’ll stay in the shallow end once filled with water, making pool pizza parties possible.

Walk on Water Ball

Walk on Water Ball

You’ll look like a floating hamster, but this Walk on Water Ball features inset cups that grip the water so you can race across pools like a rodent Michael Phelps; it inflates to 6 feet in size.

Shark Attack Wetsuit

Shark Attack Wetsuit

Diddo’s Shark Attack Wetsuit gives new meaning to carving the waves: it’s part of a series of texture-mapped suits that include anatomic musculature, rust and whale shark patterns.

RC Manta Ray

RC Manta Ray

With an underwater remote, all this RC Manta Ray needs is a shark fin to cause serious chaos at the pool; able to do barrel rolls, loops and Immelmanns, it sounds more F-16 than fish.

RAYSKIN Surfboards

RAYSKIN Surfboards

Part high-end art, part sports equipment, RAYSKIN’s hollow-deck surfboards are handmade from exotic woods and individually surf-tested before being re-finished and sold.
