Watersports are a lot of fun but not everyone has the skill, fitness level or time to learn the art of surfing. Thankfully, manufacturers with the know-how and creativity to match have come up with some great toys to make watersports a lot of fun.


Power boards are surfboards with a motor. You can lie down and press a button to get you back out through the surf or press a button with your foot if you need some more speed to catch a wave. Power boards offer around half an hour of continual running time and will get you to speeds of 7km/h with a motor that is built into the board. You can recharge the battery in about the same time.

You can find out more about power boards from the inventor, Chris Preston here.


Quickboats have made transporting a boat around an issue of the past. The vessels can be put together in less than a minute and put into the water in around the same amount of time. If you live in an apartment, you can even store one under your bed. Fully assembled, a Quickboat is 3.7m and 1.7.

For the person who has everything, the Seabreacher is the ultimate toy. It’s a cross between a jetski and a submarine that is shaped like a shark. Whether you want to jump 5m into the air or dive under and race along under water at 40km/h, the Seabreacher is for you. You can also cruise along at 80km/h on the surface.
