The Aquaskipper

The Aquaskipper, 24 pounds of water-hopping hydrofoil chicanery (wmv file).

[Update: The Aquaskipper's got some speed foil competition in the form of the FoilKayak's Flyak which broke 15 miles an hour and it looks totally cool too. Though it should be noted that the guy paddling to 15 miles per is a world class kayaker and your top speed may differ significantly.

A commenter on MeFi mentioned, quite rightly, that they messed up the marketing and could have made the up and down action a feature by utilizing bikini clad beauties to bounce around on it instead of the frat boys they did get.]
