Wavejet: a Motorised Surfboard

Want a surfboard with an engine? Here's the solution!

There is nothing better than getting close to the blue stuff at pace – and while surfing is great, the idea of something propelled by nature is always slightly incongruous to the powerboat Skipper. So how about a surfboard with a motor?

WavejetFuelled by a pair of lithium-ion batteries and propelled by a pair of jet pumps providing 20 pounds of thrust, the board is operated via a wireless wrist-mounted controller, enabling the user to enjoy an hour of solid propulsion on a single charge. As well as representing a minor miracle of miniature engineering, this is a product that enables even a small powerboat to carry its own power-driven tender.
