Wakeboarding on Snow Skis

Wakeboarding on Snow Skis

The guys from Real Skifi do some pretty wacky stuff on skis. In this clip, athletes Ilkka Hannula and Juho Kilkki decided to see if it was possible to use their powder skis to remain upright in water and across the obstacles in a wakeboarding park. Turn on subtitles.

Lift eFoil

Lift eFoil

Take a smooth ride through the waters of Miami, Florida in this beautifully-shot promo video for the Lift eFoil, an electric hydrofoil that lets you glide effortlessly above the surface with no need for wind, waves, or towing. Sadly, it’s only for those with very deep pockets.

Hurley Hideaway Board Shorts

Hurley Hideaway Board Shorts

Thanks to the sweet graphics on Hurley’s Phantom 30 Hideaway Boardshorts, we can (kind of) pretend this summer isn’t all rainy and cold. They’ve got 30% stretch and are knee length for optimal movement in and out of the water.

Ultimate Water Sports Fails

Ultimate Water Sports Fails

Just in time for the end of summer, FailArmy has put together a compilation of skimboarding, water skiing, tubing and general watery-type activity fails. We better get out there and face plant in the lake before the snow comes.

Hover-Rafting

Hover-Rafting

A couple of crazy dudes in Russia (where else?) must have left their parasailing equipment at home, so they decided to take to the air on an inflatable “kite raft” instead. We smell another Mythbusters episode here.

Jetsurf Motorized Surfboard

Jetsurf Motorized Surfboard

Like the PowerSki and the WaveJet, you don’t need waves to have fun with the Jetsurf. It uses a 86-100cc 2-stroke engine that lets you zip about up to 35mph. A full tank is good for over 2 hours of jetsurfing.

Wakeboarding Insanity

Wakeboarding Insanity

It’s officially summer and it’s like a steambath in the city, so watching all the superior wakeboarding footage in Parker Walbeck’s video for Devin Supertramp is cooling us off. And maybe making us a little jealous too.

Human Slingshot 2X

Human Slingshot 2X

Devin Graham flings summer at us as we watch these folks head 60 feet into a lake at 40mph on an inner tube. Minimal broken bones and only two people knocked unconscious – our typical Tuesday.

Cascada

Forge Films went with three equally insane kayakers to the remote jungles of Tlapacoyan, Veracruz in Mexico to search for waterfalls to ride and crash on. A beautiful and thrilling short.

Rope swing not enough for you? Perhaps an entire inflatable water park will suffice. Wibit’s Sports Park 60 is over 130ft long, 105 ft wide and about 10ft high and can accommodate up to 60 people.

Jetovator

Jetovator

A jetpack may be cooler than a bike, but if both of them are water-powered and tied to a hose then there’s not much difference. The Jetovator goes up to 25mph, rises up to 30ft and dives up to 10ft.

Floating Rope Swing
