    This is a video of Devin Supertramp and friends slip 'n sliding off a 50-foot cliff into Lake Powell. It looks like fun and now I want to do it with my friends. At least until somebody dies. "And then what?" Sink the body, delete all the footage, and make everybody in the p... / Continue →

    This is the $30 giant cockroach pool float. It's a raft that looks like a giant cockroach. Speaking of, I saw a giant cockroach in the hallway yesterday and tried to kill it by by stepping on it. "Tried?" TRIED -- it didn't die. This wasn't on carpet either, this was hard ... / Continue →

    This is the Ultraskiff Angler 360. It's a little round boat with a rotating seat, allowing for 360-degrees of uninterrupted fishing/fun. It comes with standard boat things like storage compartments, rod holders, and BUOYANCY. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "We play bum... / Continue →

    This is the giant slip and slide launch ramp built at the Ohio Dreams Action Sports Camp in Butler, Ohio. The ramp is usually used to practice ski jumping into the pool below but now they've added slip n' slides for people with less Olympic ambition. It looks like fun. Fun, ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a guy taking to the skies while riding a 'Raptor Blaster' (OMG I love blasting raptors!) kite tube being towed behind a Waverunner. That looks like fun. Except I want to be on like, 800-feet of tow-rope so I can REALLY soar. I want my head in the clo... / Continue →

    This is the Kymera electric bodyboard. It doesn't need Mother Nature's sissy wave power because it has an electric engine and battery. It's basically a lay-down jet-ski, and I was actually pretty impressed with its speed. They're currently a Kickstarter project though so if y... / Continue →

    I posted the Flyboard back in 2011 when the company first came on the scene, but now they're back with a fancy commercial. This is that commercial. And it's set to one of the most questionable songs I've heard in recent history and that's saying a lot because my little sister... / Continue →

    Because everybody has to die somehow (so why not make it on your own terms?) this is a video of a bunch of hooligans using a bungee cord attached to a boat to pull them down a hill and over a ramp into a lake while riding an inner-tube. It actually looks pretty fun. Well, min... / Continue →

    Because this is the world we live in, Grant Engler and Amanda Volf got married over the weekend on a beach and left the ceremony with a pair of water jetpacks. Personally, I think Grant should have been carrying his new bride, but that's just me and I'm the most romantic man i... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to be pulled underwater behind a slow-moving boat? I know, it's pretty low on my bucket list too. There, but low. Enter the Subwing, the latest in extreme watersports technology that allows you to do barrel rolls and...that's pretty much it, all while holding you... / Continue →

    The Flyboard from Zapata Racing is basically a water powered jetpack similar to this one that this guy used to almost eat a dock, except for your feet. So, in summary, exact same thing but strapped to your feet. I guess it's all a matter of personal taste, are you more of a j... / Continue →

    I know, the screencaps I so lovingly slapped together wound up looking like shit and offer little to no explanation of what's going on. That was my bad. Basically, photographers took a whole bunch of cameras, mounted them on a long horizontal platform, then had them all snap ... / Continue →

    You might have won this round, but as soon as I figure out how to disguise a horse as a human and train it to not shit while we make our way through the queue line then IT. IS. ON. That's right, I'm going for the polo. No, no I'm not. But I will eat six hotdogs and try to v... / Continue →

    This is a brief clip from the Fox 5 San Diego morning news (the same studio from this April Fools' prank) of a guy opening the show with one of those water-powered jetpacks. Unfortunately, he opted to not take the training course prior to operation and ends up crashing into th... / Continue →

    Don't tell Mikey but I filled mine with battery acid. Bonzai Dragon Drenchers are $25 pieces of shit water guns. They're filled up via garden hose and then, when squeezed, can shoot water up to 25ft to drench your friends. Whee!!!! Whee? woo. God, whatever happened to spl... / Continue →

    What exactly is a lift service? Is that like a tow truck? Because I do need my neighbor's pedo-van towed again. Still, interesting business combo you've got there, Mega Man. But why only Canadian water? You know you're hurting business by not offering any imported options,... / Continue →

    Alexander Augusteijn takes pictures of bullets slicing through drops of water because, well, I guess he's already taken pictures of everything else. Seriously, it's bullets through water, then like a mermaid riding a unicorn, then, I dunno, he's gonna have to take up painting ... / Continue →

    Because eventually everything will have a motor and AI and want to kill you, somebody is manufacturing motorized surfboards. The PowerSki Jetboard is basically a bare-bones Jet Ski made for surfing when there aren't any waves. Plus it can reach speeds up to 40MPH, which is ju... / Continue →

    These wetsuits from Roddenberry.com are designed to look like the uniforms from the original Star Trek series. They range in price from $435-$470, depending on the thickness of material (3mm - 7mm) you choose and you'd have to be an idiot to go surfing in a red one. Sharks yo... / Continue →

    Two extreme sporters used particularly gusty winds today to fulfill their live's dreams: to jump Worthing Pier in West Sussex, England, on kite-boards. It's time to dream bigger, brahs! Jake Scrace, 25, and Lewis Crathern, 24, had been planning Monday morning's jump for three... / Continue →
