Partly because they are increasingly smaller and, therefore, easier to store. Partly because modern boats have increasingly larger transoms or storage compartments reserved for them (today, even 60-footers have a tender garage). The fact is that water toys are experienced a golden season.
Motorised surfboards, water scooters (of all sizes and shapes) and jet skis are reviving. Foiling solutions are having a great boom. Electric surfboards and hydrodynamic appendages enables the e-surfer to sail with the board suspended half a meter above the water. So let’s see what the market offers to have fun around the boat in summer 2020.
