Indoor Basketball Court

With the 2015 NBA Playoffs in full swing, there's probably no better place for a basketball fan to be than a giant home, complete with its own indoor court. Located in San Francisco, this 5,000-square-foot, $3.32-million residence was previously an old warehouse. It's now been fitted with heated hardwood floors that were salvaged from Los Angeles airplane hangar. There's also massive 30-foot exposed timber beams as well as white-washed ceilings that surround the multiple skylights running through the property to maintain the airplane hangar feel. Last, but not least, a massive 16x20 foot retractable center skylight ensures you'll be able to get plenty of fresh air for your hoops games.

This nifty gadget consists of two hydrodynamic wings, joined in the center with a steel-and-rubber swivel (for independent pivoting). Riders can hang on using rubber grips at the front of the wings, or by grasping a rubber grab loop in the rear. Attached to the top surface of both wings are heavy-duty Dyneema fiber ropes, which are joined with the user's own tow rope. Continue reading for two videos and more information.

Rampant Surfboard

At $1.3-million, the Rampant Surfboard, by New Zealand-based Roy Stuart, just might be the world's most expensive. It measures 10-foot, 6-inches long, and is constructed from a hollowed out Paulownia timber core, while being reinforced with high-strength polycarbonate supports. The fins are designed specifically to maximize your performance on the water. The serrated fin lets riders control the board with ease, and the round fin creates a vortex of water that helps greatly reduce drag. It's capable of speeds up to 40 miles per hour on the water. To top things off, there's a 23-karat gold leaf lion stamped on the board. Click here to view the first image in this week's WINS gallery.
