Jet-Powered Surfboard

A jet-powered surfboard that is capable of crossing the English Channel in just 30 minutes is set to spark a new craze amongst watersports enthusiasts. The new Jetsurf board is a cross between a surf board and a jet-ski and can reach speeds of 40mph. The flat carbon fiber board has a 100cc engine attached to the back of it and the user stands up and uses their body weight to steer it from side to side like a surfer would. To power its way through the water the craft has a two-stroke engine and a miniature water jet. The craft sucks in water from the front and shoots it out behind, helping it to build up speed very quickly. An electronic leash which is attached to the surfer’s wrist acts as both a throttle and an emergency kill-cord.” w/ photos
