The best way to beat record high temperatures: spend as much time in the water as possible. Here are a few items to be showcased at the Outdoor Retailer show meant to help enhance your ocean experience.
A speedy rotomolded plastic bodyboat designed for joyriding rivers, oceans and lakes, the Bellyak makes boating a more intimate experience. A tube/wakeboard/kayak mashup, this hand-steered board is designed to be ridden face down on flat or flowing rivers, oceans and lakes, though it works kneeling or sitting as well. The pros: no paddle or spray skirt required, and a quick learning curve. But you may want to add a wetsuit or helmet depending on the temperature, steepness and rockiness of your descent path.
