If you are going to the beach or lake this summer do yourself a favor and buy a Waboba ball first. These things are serious fun in the water. Basically it is a soft ball, a little bigger than a golf ball, that will skip across the water in an amazing way. It is made of some type of soft rubber and covered in a nylon cloth. You can skip this thing 40 or 50 feet across the surface of the water with an easy throw. You can even stand in the surf and skip if off the inside curl of an incoming wave! It is soft enough that getting hit doesn't hurt. We picked one up on our beach trip and everyone agreed that it was the best beach toy we've ever had. More video and pics are here. We bought ours at Ron Jons but I'm sure you could find them at most any other surf shop.
