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.
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.
Devin Supertramp and his friends try out Zapata Racing’s Hoverboard. Invented by Franky Zapata – the man who came up with the Flyboard – Hoverboard lets you soar above water with the help of a jet ski.
ACL Digital Cinema showcases some of the epic shots they took this year using the amazing Red Epic camera, which has a 14mp sensor and a 5120 x 2700 pixel array. Best watched in full screen HD with the sound cranked.
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.
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.

Patagonia is working on an inflatable vest designed for big wave surfers. The final product should be wearable under a wetsuit, have an air release valve and help the wearer maintain a face-up position.
