Shark Tank, the popular ABC network reality show features aspiring entrepreneurs making business presentations to a panel of “shark” investors including Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Robert Herjavec, and Lori Greiner.

We decided to round up “shark tank” products perfect for a day on the water. Check out the ones below & tell us your favorites.

ZUP Watersports Board
The ZUP™ Watersports Board lets you experience all types of watersports on one board, from kneeling, laying, standing, surfing and more! It can be pulled behind any boat or personal watercraft. This product hasn’t made it on Shark Tank just yet, but the show called & asked for a submission video, so stay tuned & see if this product makes the airwaves soon.

Tower Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard
Mark Cuban made a deal with this company and its seen great success since Shark Tank. These inflatable stand up paddleboards are easy to inflate, deflate and be rolled up into a small bag. Store one on your boat or bring it along on vacation – it’s portable, reliable and fun on the water.

Oru Kayak
Robert Herjavec made a deal with Oru Kayak and it’s now in retailers around the world. It’s even on display in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. This kayak transforms from a box into a boat in just a few minutes. Watch the Shark Tank pitch here.

Shark Kevin O’Leary took this business under his wing to distribute the only cooler with built in LED lighting in Igloo coolers. The design uses LEDs that sit in the interior lining of the cooler, produce no heat, and have just the right amount of light to find your beverage. Many boats have LED lighting, now your cooler can too!

    I definitly like the ZUP Board the BEST, what an invention for all ages and still a challenge as you make it. I VOTE for the ZUP! No boots no extra equipment, just get on and get up if you desire to, Just great! Go ZUP – GO!

    I’m really excited about the ZUP board – it’d be great for people just starting to try out watersports who want something versatile that lets them try out all sorts of things. Here’s hoping it makes it onto the show!
