Tired of always coming in just short of a wave because you suck at paddling? Fix your problem like any self-respecting dude would: cheat. And by cheating, we mean trading in your board for a Jetsurf, a motorized surfboard that lets you run after waves at high speeds.
Created by F1 engineer Martin Sula, the board, essentially, combines surfing with jet skiing, creating a whole new way of enjoying the beach. As such, you can ride it in the waves like a surfboard or use it to navigate coasts like a stand-up motorized kayak, zipping through paddle boarders because annoying people is fun.
The Jetsurf weighs a mere 30 pounds, making it considerably lighter than a jet ski, all while being able to clock speeds of up to 35 mph on the water. The company bills it, in fact, as the only motorized water vehicle that’s compact enough to take with you during travels as personal luggage, which makes it very convenient to bring along. It comes in three models: Ultra Sport, Factory and Pro Race. All three have similar designs, with carbon fiber and Kevlar construction, as well as an electronic leash that acts both as throttle and emergency kill cord.
The Ultra Sport is the basic model, with max riding speed of 30 mph, while the Factory steps it up to 34 mph. The Pro Race is the competition board designed for more advanced riders, with a special sport carburetor and a max speed of 35 mph.
Pricing for the Jetsurf starts at $10,000.
