2. Mako Slingshot Jetboard ($9,800)

3. SwimEars ($60)

Protecting your ears is crucial if you're a serious swimmer or surfer or otherwise spend a lot of time in the water. These revolutionary earplugs keep water out while letting sound in, allowing you to hear a coach or carry on a conversation with another swimmer. Buy them at SwimEars.

4. Zapata Flyride ($6,000)

Ever wanted to fly 15 feet above the water on a jet ski and do barrel rolls in the air? This craft can do those tricks, provided you have another jet ski that it can draw its hydropower from. Gyroscopic balance assistance ensures you won't fall off. Find a seller at Zapata.

5. Aquabionic Aquatic Binding System ($299)

"No more waddling to the dive site like a penguin." Aquabionic's latest innovation combines a sneaker-like shoe with fins that clip to the toe, allowing you to get in and out of the water more easily. The product ships in November. Preorder at Cetatek.
