• Track Your Surf Sessions Like You Track Your Runs With The Glassy Pro One

    Track Your Surf Sessions Like You Track Your Runs With The Glassy Pro One

    If you spend more time catching waves at the beach than hitting the trails for a run, then a general purpose fitness tracker isn’t likely to do you a lot of good.  For the most part, they just aren’t rigged to keep track of the things you’re likely to care about most.  So ditch the Fitbit and get that wrist ready to strap a Glassy Pro One instead. A dedicated sportsband for surfers, it ditches the “calories burned” and “steps [...]

    Forget Making Your Own Superhero Suits, Nike’s Pro Combat Apparel Has You Covered

    Everything is a struggle for people who want to be real life superheroes.  It just isn’t an easy path. Take the superhero costume, for instance.  Anyone trying to create a real-life superhero persona will naturally look towards comic book superheroes for inspiration in their attire.  Problem is, a lot of superhero costumes are just plain dumb in the real world.  Capes?  Some dude can just step on that cape to stop you dead in your tracks.  Armored suits?  Yeah, good [...]

    AlumaSki Brings Jet Skiing To Shallow Waters

    While jet skis can work great for navigating the narrow confines of rivers and streams, they present a problem when you end up in shallow areas of the water.  Simply put, all those rocks are likely to render your QuadSki’s fiberglass hull beat down, banged up, and heavily damaged.  The AlumaSki, a new personal watercraft, offers a more durable alternative. Combining the shallow water durability and payload of an aluminum river boat with the affordability and fuel efficiency of jet [...]

    Ralph Lauren, the long-running apparel company, is officially getting into wearable tech.  The company has announced the Polo Tech, a shirt that can track and collect biological and physiological information about the person wearing it.

    CorkNet Pot Holder Doubles As A Table Tennis Net. Wait, What?

    CorkNet is a pot holder designed for use in the dining table.  Lay it down, put your hot cookware straight off the stove on top, and all is well with the world.  Except, it’s also designed to turn the dining table into a ping pong table, allowing you to play a game of table tennis with the kids after dinner is over.   Whoever loses takes out the trash. Sized like a regulation table tennis net, all you have to do [...]

    Sony Smart Tennis Sensor Attaches To Your Racket, Records Your Complete Game Data

    Nothing beats good coaches when it comes to developing your tennis skills.  If you don’t have access to those, however, you should be able to get plenty of training mileage from good instructional videos and Sony’s Smart Tennis Sensor. Designed to attach to the grip end of a tennis racket, it’s compatible with products from Wilson, Prince, and Yonex, among others.  There’s probably a good chance it will work with most rackets you have stashed away at home, too, so [...]

  • Axe Baseball Bat Handle Redesign Leads To More Power, Less Injuries

    Axe Baseball Bat Handle Redesign Leads To More Power, Less Injuries

    Combining an axe and a baseball bat for the heck of it isn’t that far out.  For one, they’re both hand tools that you swing to hit objects with.  The Axe Bat, however, combines the two for a more practical reason: giving the baseball bat an axe handle actually makes it more efficient to use. At least, that’s the claim behind the new bat design, which its creators posit, can deliver more power, enhance grip stability, and create additional rotational [...]

  • Turn Puny Lakes Into Fertile Surfing Grounds With The Mastercraft X20 Wakesurfing Boat

    Turn Puny Lakes Into Fertile Surfing Grounds With The Mastercraft X20 Wakesurfing Boat

    I’ve heard of wakesurfing before but never tried it. It’s a wakeboarding and surfing mash-up where a rider holds on to a rope towed by a boat (like in wakeboarding), then lets it go as soon as he catches a big-enough wave created by the boat’s wake to surf it.   The Mastercraft X20 is a new watercraft that’s been optimized to create the biggest surf waves possible. “Designed from the fins up to rip the perfect surf wave,” it comes [...]

    Strand Craft V8 Wet Rod: So, This Is What A Luxury Jet Ski Looks Like

    The Strand Craft V8 Wet Rod is a luxury personal watercraft.  You know, like a Rolls Royce of jet skis.  Like the car, it lets you show off ostentatious wealth without having to say a word.  Which is why it’s a little disappointing the thing can’t be driven by a chauffeur. Designed to look more elegant than sporty, the watercraft will definitely make an imposing presence in any beach, setting itself apart from all the sporty Yamahas and Skii-doos riding [...]

    Bounce Below Lets You Play On Giant Trampolines Inside An Abandoned Cave

    Exploring caves?  Lots of fun.  Bouncing on trampolines?  Even more fun.  While we don’t know if combining them doubles the fun, that’s exactly what they did with Bounce Below, the newest attraction at UK’s Zip World Titan theme park. Described as “the first subterranean playground of its kind,” it consists of a series of giant trampolines that stretch across the expanse of an underground cave.  Like regular trampolines, you can bounce around over and over until you’re dizzy.  Except you [...]

A miniature elliptical trainer, it slips right under your desk for use while sitting down.  Place your feet on the footpads then start kicking forward and back in a motion similar to a regular elliptical machine.   That’s it [...]

    Quadski XL: The Half-Jetski, Half-Quadcycle Can Now Ride Two People At A Time

    We’re huge fans of the Quadski and its double-duty talents, ripping through bodies of water as capably as it does on rugged terrains.  Except it only had enough space to sit one, which ruled out meeting a girl at the beach and spending the day impressing her with your amphibious driving skills.  Not the case with the new Quadski XL, a two-seater version of the versatile recreational ride. Like its single-seat brother, the vehicle can transform from ATV to watercraft [...]

    ZR Hoverboard: It’s Not The Flying Skateboard We Asked For, But We’ll Take It

    When I read someone made a hoverboard, I really thought our Back to the Future dreams are finally realized. Then I found out it wasn’t. And I was sad. But then I checked out the ZR Hoverboard and I wasn’t sad anymore. Total want! You know those hydro jetpacks that are attached to a jet ski’s propulsion then mounted on your body so you can fly over a body of water like a superhero? Well, this is the same thing. Except instead [...]

    While nighttime joggers aren’t quite in the same level of danger as nighttime cyclists, there are still some situations where you will want to be easily seen.
