Waterbike the Human Powered Hydrofoil Waterbicycle


The Basic Idea of the waterbike was to redesign an aquaskipper for pedal power. So a pedal system with propellar was simply added to the the aquskipper. But this version didn´t work good at all.

In the second version of the Waterbike, a bicycle frame was used as a basic frame. And the wings and propellar-system were custom build. This Waterbike works very well as you can see in the video. After the Flying Fish this is just the second watercycle without any floating devices.  This means you always must start with enough speed from some kind of jetty and you can not go to slow unless you preferre to swim.
