Here’s something a little unexpected. Not what you’d think would work. Its called a Water Bird. Other names for it include Water Scooter, Sea Scooter, and Aqua Skipper.
Driving an Aqua Car would be fun. But perhaps it’s not available in your area or its a little pricey for the budget. Perhaps you’d enjoy this instead, an evidently Chinese invention available from several manufacturers there.
Here’s the assembly and use of one model:
A shorter clip:
They weight about 25 lb., have a wingspan of 8 feet, and are said to be easy to learn and transport (disassembled). One said the water should be 1.6 M deep (start from a dock) but I saw a clip of someone stepping onto one on a beach.
Looks like fun!
