The title pretty much says it all doesn’t it – we’re talking about a freaking surfboard with an engine in it!
The geniuses behind this contraption are JetSurf from the Czech Republic, and I have to agree with one of the video’s viewers who said “Shut-up and take my money!”
This seems to combine the best in tow-in surfing with wake boarding and even snowboarding to an extent. The board itself is a High Tech motorised surfboard designed and manufactured by MotoGP and Formula1 engineers. It’s a monocoque hull made 100% from the highest quality Carbon Fibre. A specially designed high tech Two-Stroke 86 cubic centimeter engine provides an amazing 12HP with only 14 Kg. in weight!
In order to control this beast JetSurf is equipped with an automatic electronic control unit with auto start function and a system for continuous running of the engine.
Power to the starter motor and spark plug is supplied by 3 Lithium Ferron batteries. A patented high tech exhaust system ensures maximum power and reduced noise in a very small space.
I simply cannot wait to get my hands on one of these, however I’m not sure if any of the guys out the back will appreciate it. More waves for ME!
- Note: this is extremely environmentally friendly compared to other motorised water sports
