Don't just walk on water. Hop on it!
The AquaSkipper’s patented design, hydrofoil wings and fiberglass spring let you fly across the water by hopping up and down. The secret to your awesome power? Hydrofoil wings have very little drag in the water. Plus, the aircraft aluminum frame weighs a mere 26 pounds. So take on the surf. Try new tricks. Race your friends. And turn heads everywhere you ride.
When the fun is done, quickly stow your AquaSkipper in the optional tote bag.
It's environmentally-friendly. No noise pollution. No air pollution. No water pollution. No engine. And with the AquaSkipper, the only fuel you’ll burn are the calories from an exhilarating and invigorating cardiovascular workout.
How does the AquaSkipper work?
Every time you jump, the force of your weight compresses the fiberglass spring, causing 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.
The front foil is locked to a constant height in the water by the skimmer, which planes on the surface of the water.
The image above shows the AquaSkipper during the upward portion of the jump.
The image above shows the AquaSkipper during the downward portion of the jump. The force of the jumping pushes down on the back foil and compresses the spring.
