You want an Airboard!

Back to the Future? A personal hovercraft!

For a mere $14,000 you can have your own Airboard. The Air Board floats about 8 inches off the ground and can go as fast as 15 mph. Two levers on the steering bar control the Air Board’s acceleration and brakes. The rider simply shifts his weight to turn. The Air Board also has a safety switch that kills the engine when the rider jumps off, so even if you’re hurled in front of it you won’t end up being sucked underneath.

It can be used on hard surfaces – concrete, ice and grass to name a few. See if you can convince your local sports centre to let you give it a whirl around!
