It’s fast, it’s sleek, it’s the Ferrari of stand-up paddleboards: The Jobe Bamboo SUP 12.6  is aimed at adventurers who want to take long, testing trips where added speed doesn’t mean sacrificing stability.

The 12’6” glass-fiber board has a single fin, weighs 28 lbs and has a shaped platform to keep you as aerodynamic and light as possible while paddling. It’s decent on the slow-rollers but best suited for exploration and is easily the best looking SUP around.

The 3DR Solo Quadcopter is probably the best smart drone for GoPro cameras. It’s very easy to operate, making producing professional aerial footage a breeze. What’s particularly innovative is its status as the only all-in-one drone that can wirelessly stream HD video, with a range of up to half a mile.
