Wet N Seriously Wild

Wet N Seriously Wild

This far-out concept by Jurmol Yao takes extreme watersports to an entirely new level. The design falls somewhere between a wakeboard and jet ski, with a propulsion system built directly into the bottom of the board, allowing adrenaline junkies to get serious air or even “board” underwater. How? We’re not sure exactly, but we want it… now.

High Performance Sled

High Performance Sled

Winter is officially here and even those of us in sunny SoCal are looking forward to playing in the snow! Now, if only we could get our hands on New Zealand based design company 4DESIGN’s Stealth-X snow sled. This super lightweight, monocoque sled is made entirely of carbon fiber to enhance its strength. Sitting in a position similar to an F1 car, the rider leans as they would a motorcycle to navigate turns at a top speed of 40MPH. It’s so maneuverable it can be skidded to a stop just like a snowboard. Leave it to the Kiwis!

Snowboard wrist armor delight

Snowboard wrist armor delight

Designer Navik Lal presents a fabulous new look at the protection of the wrists of the hardcore snowboarder. This is Morph Armour, made to create a protective barrier around your wrist while you retain near-full mobility throughout your arms so you can continue to be the sports beast you know you can be. This solution takes on what Lal notes is one of the most common mishaps in the snowboarding world, making the 88% of the snowboarding population think twice about how much of a hinderance safety has to be.

Evolution of the Jet Ski

Evolution of the Jet Ski

Recently pre-launched at the Monoco boat show, the Wesp is unlike any jet ski you’ve seen before. Inspired by Formula 1 racing, the craft is characterized by an unorthodox yet functional shape that allows it to cruise gently across the waves or switch into high speed racing mode. In an exhilarating twist, direction is controlled using a body motion steering system where the driver swivels from left to right, similar to how a motorcyclist flicks from side to side to initiate a turn.

Segway of the Sea

Segway of the Sea

The Stingray is a single-rider watercraft designed for both recreational and humanitarian uses. The buoyant saddle and lever combination is driven by a pneumatic propulsion system that converts user generated energy into air flow, transmitting thrust directly into the water without the use of gears or electric circuits. Useful as a mobile flotation device for flood disasters or simply to enjoy a day out on the water!

Bindings Just Got Better

Bindings Just Got Better

The Flow Caiman snowboard binding may be a more minimal approach than other designs on the market, but don’t be fooled, it packs greater functionality into a light design that aims to keep riders from constantly making pit stops to make adjustments. Every component has been redesigned to help the rider get in and out quickly and adjust the bindings without screwdrivers. See how it works!

Classy Beast

Classy Beast

The Dartline 60′ combines superior performance and a refined aesthetic into one dreamy powerboat that’s sure to intrigue. Aggressive shapes, lines and curves are contrasted by a clean, elegant style with impeccable attention to detail. While the perfectly polished wood and white hull/trim complete its sophisticated look, I’d love to see a meaner version in black. I’ll take one of each!

Electro-Kart Action

Electro-Kart Action

Unlike the conventional (and totally passé) gasoline go-karts, the ACTO kart is entirely battery-powered, and of course, boasts zero emissions. Its strong, feather-light, monocoque body has a playful, formula one-like aesthetic that places the driver in the center for enhanced ergonomics, excitement, and protection. Clean and fun!

Growing Pains

Growing Pains

The short length of time it takes for kids to grow out of their clothes means parents are spending a lot of money on clothes- even more so when it comes to expensive sports gear. GRO is a set of protective hockey equipment designed to gradually expands as the wearer grows. Simple yet effective functionality that will protect kids (and wallets) for years after purchase!

Canoeing Just Got Serious

Canoeing Just Got Serious

Compared to its kayaking counterpart, canoeing has seen little redesign over the years, and many would consider the activity to be somewhat antiquated. The Explorer Canoe Paddle is a twist on the classic that gives a new life to the sport, featuring a sporty looking yet functional form. A flexible blade core increases adaptive power and joint protection while a curved carbon shaft and looped grips provide more control and power transmission.

A Timeless Yacht Design

A Timeless Yacht Design

The highlight of the Cronos yacht is stunningly intricate woodwork that almost seems to grow from within the opulent interior and extend across spacious decks before pouring over into the water. The elaborate flooring and siding leaves little to be desired from additional furnishings. This is recognized in its otherwise minimal, albeit somewhat futuristic, interior and exterior. I’d never want to leave!

Blade Bodyguard

Blade Bodyguard

I cringe every time I see an ice skate in a horror movie… you know that thing is going in someone’s head! You’d think that would be a reminder to be extra careful, but accidents still happen with those super sharp blades. Kootsu’s new skateguard protects both the blade & the user with a patented spring-activated catch & release mechanism that allows the unit to be installed on the skate blade with minimal contact & effort. A widened rubber sole also enables the user to safely walk in the them as if they were shoes.
