ExtraHyperActive: The Aquaglide 270 Multi Sport - A Remarkable Multi-Use Watercraft

The Aquaglide 270 Multi Sport - A Remarkable Multi-Use Watercraft

What if you can use your watercraft for more than just one activity ?

Recently, I came across this interesting product:
Aquaglide 270 Multi Sport 2015 is a great multi-use watercraft that can be transformed into a windsurfer, a sit-on-top kayak, a performance towable, a sailboat, or a motor tender! Compact, quick and easy to assemble, the Aquaglide is the perfect addition to your collection of water toys.

I tried windsurfing this summer , and I loved it ! The only downside - loading/unloading, and transporting the rig to the beach can be a hassle.

With the  you don't need an expensive car rack or a trailer--it fits into car trunks and boat lockers for easy transport. More than that, it fits into a convenient carry case that can even be checked as normal airline luggage!

As for multi- use, I tried my windsurfer for paddleboarding. Even for somebody (relatively) fit like me, it was hard to maintain my balance ( though, I have to admit that my windsurfer is a bit narrower than a standard SUP or a beginner windsurfer). The Aquaglide  is a sailboard that caters specifically for first time surfers. This board is inflatable, lightweight and ideal for learning how to navigate the winds.

As for the price, Aquaglide  costs a fraction of the price of any other sailboat, windsurfer, paddleboard or kayak, and offers a much wider range of use. You still can find 15-20 year-old windsurfing rigs for about $100 on Craigslist, but if I ever have a chance to find the Aquaglide, I am buying it !
