Jet Surf: The Ultimate Ride

[02/06/14] 

Man has put engines on some pretty wonderful things. Hang gliders, canoes, lawn mowers, balloons and ten speeds just to name a few. Our need for speed, for power, is seemingly as relentless and endless as our innovation and ingenuity.

Enter the latest non-motorised item to be modified with the addition of copious combustion: the humble surfboard.

Packed with the most powerful engine of its kind designed by homosapiens, Jet Surf looks like it should be a getaway vehicle in a Mission Impossible film (give it time folks!). It’s literally a stubby surfboard packed with a powerful engine – the racing version features a 100cc displacement and a top speed of 57km/hr – that’s controlled by hand grips, sans waves or any tidal intervention. Hand-crafted with ultra-light carbon and Kevlar (just in case you really are dodging bullets), these man-boards not only pack a punch but can be packed into check-in luggage so you can hot dog anywhere there’s water and an audience.

Perfecting nature with petrol power.
