Surfing is fun. Problem is, you need decent-sized waves to actually ride a board across water. If the local beach doesn’t quite deliver on that front, you can proxy-surf those tiny waves on the Kyosho RC Surfer Lost Edition instead.
A radio-controlled motorized surfboard with a surfer on top, you can let it loose across the calmest waters and have it look like a pro surfing big waves out in Hawaii and Australia. Whether you’re in a beach, a lake, or a pool in the backyard, this thing lets you turn it into your personal RC surf spot.
The Kyosho RC Surfer Lost Edition is a 1/5-scale model consisting of a 26-inch surfboard and a foot-tall surfer that mounts on the board using O-rings. A water-cooled 24T brushed electric motor powers the board with enough torque to drive through big waves, while sending it gliding at speeds of up to 10 mph. While a particularly big wave or a sharp turn can send the surfer succumbing to the water, it comes with a self-righting design that immediately orients it upright, so you never have to leave shore to retrieve a capsized board and a drowning surfer.
This special Lost Edition, by the way, comes with a new goofy-footed surfer figure and original Lost graphics. Features include fully-waterproofed electronics, a 2200 mAh Ni-MH battery, and an included Syncro KT-231P 2.4 GHz radio.
Available now, the Kyosho RC Surfer Lost Edition is priced at $229.
