If you've ever been out on a crowded lake, maybe you've been lucky enough to see the Aquaskipper in action. The Aquaskipper is a human powered hydrofoil, which uses the force of your weight to compress the fiberglass spring and cause the back foil to change its angle and generate the propulsion every time you jump. Made of aircraft aluminium frame and fiberglass, it weighs a mere 26 pounds and can move at speeds of up to 17 mph. Assembly is easy and it comes in a handy bag. Check this out! Every time you jump, the force of your weight compresses the fiberglass spring, making the back foil to change its angle. From the same impact of your jump, the angled back foil is pushed downward to generate the propulsion. Cool and fun on the water! You can buy the Aquaskipper for $495.
