Jet Surf – Motorized Surfboard
I am always on the lookout for the next big thing as it applies to my life as a mermaid in South Florida, and when I stumbled accross this Jet Powered Surfboard video from Hawaii, I just had to share it with you all!
According to their website, JetSurf was founded in 2008 by Martina Sula. Along with developers Tadej Sterk and Zbynek Bures, JetSurf turned a old idea into reality. The three’s knowledge of combustion engines, hydromechanics, composite materials, and electrical engineering created a really cool toy, that does 35mph on the open water!
Starting at $13500, the 86 cc – 100 cc has a max speed of 53 km/h for type Ultra Sport and 57 km/h for type Pro Race, and uses 2 liters of gas per hour. The Jetsurf is equipped with an automatic electronic control unit with auto start/stop function, and the Li-FePO4* battery has a driving time of 4 hours between charges.
Titled the JetSurf Crash Compilation 2014, the following video will give you a good idea how much fun one of these things could be on the Waterways of Jupiter, Florida….
A new way to ride, how true it is…
