If all you think about is surfing and hunting the next big wave consumes your life, then you might be interested to learn about a new toy called Surfer Dudes. This beach toy will be great fun for kids and adults, which actually catches a wave and rides it back to shore just like a dedicated surfer would try to do.

Surf Report covers new Kickstarter project

The Surfer Dude turns to the correct side up after being put into the ocean, then you can watch it ride a wave back to shore.

Currently, Surfer Dudes is a new Kickstarter project with 26 backers at the time of writing. They are some way from their pledge goal of $70,000 and only have $1,329, as we report this news.

One surfing news blog, called Surf Report, states that the idea for Surfer Dudes came after a son stared “at his older brother surfing”. The inventor, Joe Thompson, then had the idea for a toy that could ride a wave back to shore.

This new Kickstarter project has been in prototyping for two years and you can see a video showing a prototype on Surf Report. You can also become a backer via this page on Kickstarter, although take note that they need to reach their goal of $70,000 by Feb 9.
