When waverunners and Jet Skis came about years and years ago, they were THE water toy for every man that had enough disposable income to purchase. We are in the heart of Kansas City and taking weekend lake trips to the Ozarks or other nearby lakes is something most guys grow up doing. If you were lucky enough to have a waverunner yourself or managed to snag a rich friend that let you ride theirs, you felt like a king on the lake when driving one. Fast forward several years later and jet skis have advanced in their power, safety, and even the amount of people you can have on a jetski. You aren’t held in awe when you see one anymore because they have become the norm which is why the industry was ready to be disrupted with a new gadget to use on the water.
Gadgets 4 Guys found the disruption and it is called the PowerSki JetBoard. In summary, the JetBoard is a motorized surfboard that is on steroids. The JetBoard can reach top speeds of around 32 mph which is pretty darn fast when you are standing on a board and not riding on a jetski. The other nice thing about the JetBoard is you can lean one side or to the other and have your body just mere inches from the water which is an intense feeling. It has 32 horsepower and get ride times of 45 minutes to an hour which will be one of the most fun hours you spend on the water. The other thing that isn’t on the spec sheet for the JetBoard is the wow factor you will have by owning one of these bad boys. We are yet to see one on any of the lakes around us which means if you snag one, you will be “that guy” with a toy nobody else has around. The price tag is pretty steep but if you would rather have one of these instead of a jet ski, the price tag isn’t that crazy. The PowerSki JetBoard is getting a lot of publicity and as more people get these, the crazier videos we will see with people doing tricks and other activities on it. You can purchase the JetBoard on their website and it seems to be a pretty quick learning curve to get going. Click here for image source and where to buy.
