The AquaSkipper is an unusual water contraption that rests on hydrofoils, lifting it above the water and moving you faster than all other human-powered watercraft. You skim across the water with your feet on the platform and your hands on the handles — simply hop up and down to propel yourself forward.
For what it is, the Aquaskipper is light weight at 26 lbs, and it's made out of aircraft aluminum and fiberglass. It has a wingspan of eight feet and it's six feet long when assembled. With a stated top speed of 17 mph the AquaSkipper can really move out, but the question I’d ask is: How far can you, the human motor, go before you need a to catch your breath?
