Last summer, when stand-up paddle surfing was all the rage in the Hamptons, the summer crowd could be seen steering their paddleboards through calm waters from Montauk to Moriches.
We think we’ve found a much livelier watersport for summer ’11.
It’s called AquaSkipping, and it originated in Germany a few years ago.
Participants use a device with hydrofoils to literally “hop” through the water at speeds of up to 17 miles per hour (via Inhabitat).
Check out the video, below. This actually looks pretty fun.
