Surfing without waves ;)

The tricky bit about redesigning something like this is the energy needed to power the electric motor. Several years back, I came across a little flashlight-of-a-sort that had no battery to power it...the bottom of it was open and inside are little metal wafers that utilize water to power it...you just place the thing upright in shallow water and electricity is produced via whatever components do such a thing.

For such a board, it appears that one of the most expensive parts of it is the battery, but...a redesign would have such wafers built into the fin and just a small battery to get the motor started. Once in motion, water streaming in through the wafers would produce enough energy to get enough power to surf without waves. Seems pretty simple...

I guess I've just been waiting for an application to use such a thing for, and I reckon I have. Fun first, right? Necessity later...
