The Slip N’ Slide brought most of the fun of a waterslide to every kid’s backyard. And while the experience wasn’t exactly like you’d get at a waterpark, at least you didn’t have to stand in line for hours on end. The Banzai Skimboard Surfer hopes to do the same for surfing, allowing you to enjoy the sport in your backyard without the risk of sharks, drowning or breaking your neck. (Well at least the first two.)
Just connect a garden hose and when the bumpers along the sides are filled they’ll start spraying water into the inner reservoir. Once that’s filled, you’ll be able to skim along the specially designed surface using the included pro-quality (probably not) wooden surfboard. You can find it at Wal-Mart for $49.88.
