JetSurf Jet-Propelled Surfboard

Unlike other surfboards, the JetSurf combines technology with surfing. Powered by a two-stroke 100cc engine, this carbon fiber surfboard can reach speeds up to 40mph, and has a 45-mile fuel tank capacity, giving riders a solid 1.5-hours of fun out on the water.

“The Jetsurf weighs a mere 30 pounds, making it considerably lighter than a jet ski.

It comes in three models: Ultra Sport, Factory and Pro Race. All three have similar designs, with carbon fiber and Kevlar construction,” reports CoolThings.
