Re: SICK JETFOILER

that's pretty cool, I'd put a highback barstool on it though, and a 40 quart cooler from my pro-tanning circuit days...

Re: SICK JETFOILER

Yeah but once you attach a proper anchor and three hundred feet of chain at the bow, the thing won't float any more

Watch some fool taking one of these things across the Atlantic or Pacific ....

Re: SICK JETFOILER

So what powers the thing? I would think internal combustion, but that would be tough given the space involved, electric would take a large Li-Po pack, large.

SICK JETFOILER

The board is equipped with hydrofoils that uses an electric motor and Li-Ion batteries.

No need for wind as you can Kite-board on calm days to.

Choppy water is no problem as it float over any rough water.

They never show what's underwater, so it hard to see whats driving it.

It has a bit of a draft as you can see it really come up high out of the water.

Re: SICK JETFOILER

I signed up for their postings just to see the details if there ever released. I know how far a small dinghy can go with a torqueedo and what they cost. As cool as it looks I fear range and price will limit this to extremely wealthy beachfront property owners.

Re: SICK JETFOILER

Now that's a suitable use for EP

I like it!

I'd much rather see those running around an anchorage that a bunch of noisy sea-lice!

I'm real sure the drive is in the water, and except for the hiss the foil will make as it goes through the water, above the water there will be no noise at all. I don't think.
Wonder about the cost?

This was my cave scooter, Li-po battery pack of nearly 1 kilowatt / hr. That may drive one of these boards.
