Surf Skooter: what are you going to do with it? | Photo: Surf Skooter

A bodyboard for kneeboarding, surfing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, and, of course, for bodyboarding. Can you imagine that? Well, if it gets real, it will be Surf Skooter.

Michael Hoskins, the inventor of Surf Skooter, dreams of creating an entirely new market segment for this bodyboard with retractable handle bars. He says it's all about "improving upon Morey's original concept and extending the thrill of the ocean to millions more."

Anyone can ride the Surf Skooter. Young, old, and by people with prosthetics and other disabilities, too. The new product features an optional towing accessory that allows everyone to ride behind a boat.
