Are you into extreme activities, sports etc. I didn't think riding the Wego Kite Tube was such an extreme activity until I found out that Sportsstuff, Inc. had voluntarily recalled 19,000 Wego Kite Tubes in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. I was out on the lake recently and saw one of these in action. Who knew they could be so dangerous! The recall is in reaction to the 39 injury incidents that included two deaths, a broken neck, punctured lung, chest and back injuries and facial injuries. If you do own a Wego Kite Tube you should immediately stop using the kite tubes and either use the Wego Kite Tube Replacement Request or contact Sportsstuff at (866) 831-5524 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CST Monday through Friday to learn how to obtain free replacement products.

It's always a great to get your kids involved in your hobbies. The Perception Acadia Scout was designed from scratch to fit kids from 8-12 years old, and not just as a first boat, but as one that could grow with them. The funny thing is that the Acadia Scout was actually designed by kids for kids, so no more bumping elbows on a too-wide hull, or sitting on a pfd just to see over a too-high cockpit. Pick from red or yellow, then watch the included Start-Right DVD and get on your way.

This concept electric kick scooter by Jieyu Design works on land and as a propulsion aid in water. On land it functions as a normal electric kick scooter using 2 hub motors inside the wheels themselves, while in the water it acts as a propulsion aid using the propellers attached to the wheels to push water out in one singular direction propelling it across water. In designing this product for two different environments, many difficulties and opportunities arose. A very sweet concept.
