WaveJet Jet Powered Surfboard Makes Paddling a Dream

[08/08/11] 

WaveJet's new surfboard features battery-powered water jets that propel you forward so you don’t have to waste all your time and energy paddling out to sea. You can also enjoy the satisfaction of cruising past your fellow surfers while expending minimal effort which is every bit as enjoyable as overtaking a friend on the motorway in third gear.

Unveiled at this year’s Surf Expo, the WaveJet generates 20lbs of thrust, has a continuous run-time of over 30 minutes, and recharges in a standard wall socket. An innate flaw is a lot of surfers are environmentally conscious as well as exercise fanatics which means they're not lazy and don't enjoy draining resources either. They might change their minds, however, when they see how much fun you’re having – so long as you don’t look like a total prat when it comes to the surfing itself.

The jets are controlled via a wrist-strap remote and it's particularly suitable for unfit beginners. One of its main advantages is allowing you to surf for longer (on account of the energy it'll save you) which means you'll still be out at sea while everyone else is completing laborious tasks such as collecting firewood for the night's camping. Bonus.
