Run On Water

Surfboard just under the water's surface features a treadmill.

A semi submerged surfboard that features a treadmill on top. When the person walks, the treadmill senses their movement and turns under them while simultaneously sending power to a motorized propeller.

They stay stationary relative to the unit which will move them through the water at the speed of their walking or running.

Moving slightly to the right or left steers the unit.

Do your daily jog on the water or use it to enhance surfing. Rather than paddling out to that wave and having to get up at the right moment, just run to your turning point, catch the wave and ride it in.
