Sometimes the motion of the ocean just isn’t enough to get you going. And now you can get your head out of the gutter, because we’re actually talking about a jet powered surfboard called the WaveJet.
It’s a patented Personal Water Propulsion engine, and while it appears to be a powered surfboard, it can be attached to a variety of crafts, such as a SUPs, kayaks, kiteboards, rescue boards and light boats.
The kit is powered by an integrated twin-lithium ion battery pack and can produce 20lbs of thrust (2-3 times faster than paddling) for up to 30 minutes. The makers say it’s quiet, safe and light weight. To recharge the WaveJet you just plug it into a standard wall socket.
How much? About $4,500.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
