    Rip Curl Search GPS Watch Records Wave And Speed Metrics During Your Surf Session

    Someday, we’ll have wearable trackers for every sport imagineable. Yes, even Footgolf and ChessBoxing. For now, though, we’ll have to content ourselves seeing dedicated trackers trickle out every now and again. The Rip Curl Search GPS Watch is the latest to drift ashore, adding metrics and data analysis to every surfer’s arsenal of tricks. Described as “the world’s first GPS surf watch,” it lets surfers track every wave they catch, registering a whole load of vital stats from your daily sessions at the [...]

  • X9 Follow Golf Trolley Trails You Around The Course Autonomously, Won’t Shoot Lasers At Opponents Though

    X9 Follow Golf Trolley Trails You Around The Course Autonomously, Won’t Shoot Lasers At Opponents Though

    Like other robot caddies, you can have the X9 Follow Golf Trolley carry your golf clubs as you make your way around the course, controlling its movement via a remote. Unlike them, it can function without the remote, autonomously trailing its player, wherever the human overlord decides to go next. Made by Stewart Golf, the automaton doesn’t make cute noises, do adorable robot things, or shoot missiles on your opponents. Heck, it won’t even open an umbrella to help you out when [...]

    Wilson Smart Basketball Lets You Build A Shot Chart Of Your Game

    We’ve seen efforts to build a consumer-grade basketball that tracks on-court performance before.  If you want something like this to go mainstream, though, you’ll need a big name who can produce basketballs with onboard monitoring tech at scale.  And it looks like that’s what we’re getting with the Wilson Smart Basketball. A collaboration between the sports equipment manufacturer and Finnish AI company SportIQ, the ball comes with integrated electronics that can track your location on court, as well as whether [...]

    Learning a new skateboard trick entails a lot of trial and error, usually accompanied with a heaping of scrapes and the occasional broken bone.  That’s just how it’s always been.  But who says it has to be that way going forward?  Definitely not the guys behind SkaterTrainer. A tool that makes learning new skate tricks simpler and safer, it attaches to the board’s wheels, keeping it from moving before and after performing a trick.  Basically, it lets you practice kickflips, [...]

    BomBoard Is A Compact, Modular And Affordable Jet Ski

    Jet skis are awesome, but, darn it, they’re expensive as heck.  While there are some affordable options out there, we really haven’t seen one that’s as light on the bank account as the BomBoard. Described as “the world’s most affordable, high performance personal watercraft,” it’s slated to retail for under $3,495 — around half of what you’d expect to pay for most entry-level jet skis in the market.  It’s also smaller than your typical jet ski — a big factor [...]

    Electrafin Conversion Kit Adds Motorized Powertrain To Kayaks And Paddleboards

    Life is so much easier when machines do our hard work.  It’s why we taught robots to clean the house.  It’s why we put electric motors in our bicycles and skateboards.  And it’s why somebody built Electrafin, a motorized drive for kayaks, paddleboards, and longboards. Made by Current Drives, it’s an electric motor conversion kit designed to quickly install on existing gear, letting you enjoy a leisurely cruise without having to swing a paddle the entire duration.  No more tired [...]

    Someone Built A 3D-Printed Kayak And It’s Awesome

    Who says you can only build small toys and little trinkets with the current crop of desktop 3D printers?  Certainly not this dude, who built the World’s First 3D Printed Kayak. No, it’s not a toy kayak that can only ride around in pools and bathtubs.  Instead, it’s a fully-functional paddle boat that you can use along real bodies of water.  Just pick up a kayak paddle, hit the beach, and you’re good to go. Heck, the kayak even has [...]

  • Surfears Protect Your Ears In Water Without Shutting Out Ambient Sound

    Surfears Protect Your Ears In Water Without Shutting Out Ambient Sound

    Spending extended hours engaged in watersports sounds fun.  Experiencing ear inflammation and abnormal bone growth in the ear canal from extended exposure to water, cold air, dirt, and bacteria, though — not so much.   While you can wear ear plugs to block out all the nasty elements, they, pretty much, render you deaf to what’s going on, apart from potentially affecting your balance.  Surfears, a custom-designed set of earplugs, can change that. Boasting close to zero acoustic loss when worn, [...]

    Think golf is boring?  Well, that’s to be expected.  After all, the only things you find cool are lasers, magnets, and blinking LEDs.   And golf has none of that (strangely cool Golf Bike, notwithstanding).  At least, that’s what you thought because you’ve only tried playing during the day.  Hit the course at night with these LED Golf Balls and we’ll bet you’ll have a change of heart.

    FootGolf: Kick Soccer Balls Into Holes On A Golf Course

    Golf’s leisurely pace can be incredibly relaxing (especially when you go around the fairway on a Golf Cart Hovercraft), but putting tiny balls into tiny holes can be absolutely frustrating.  It’s like trying to meditate while seeing Freddie Krueger every time you close your eyes — just doesn’t work.  Why can’t we play in a golf course with bigger holes instead?  We guess someone felt the same way and invented the FootGolf. Like golf, the object of the game is [...]

    Hydro-powered jetpacks have been slowly evolving from a casual curiosity to a popular watersport. As such, it isn’t surprising to see newcomers in the burgeoning space. The X-Jetpacks H3X Hydro is one of these upstart entrants, boasting both “hardcore marine engineering” and a “sports-centered design.” Like the Flyboard and the Jetovator, the contraption bolts on to a jetski and uses the watercraft’s propulsion to send the rider high up the air. Unlike most current products that are sold as kits, [...]

That’s exactly what the EasyBreath Snorkeling Mask does. Instead of a tube that connects to just a mouthpiece, the new snorkel attaches the air pipe to a watertight mask that covers your entire face.

    PULSE Kinetic Jump Rope Generates Power To Charge Your Gadgets While You Exercise

    What night be the logical future evolution for fitness trackers and wearable gadgets? Onboard kinetic generators that convert our everyday movements into usable energy so they never need to be plugged into a power source again. That may be a long time coming, though, since the facility for power generation hasn’t quite shrunk down to fit in a wristband yet. At the moment, it’s actually more feasible to put kinetic generators in our actual exercise equipment, like the Siva Cycle [...]
