But Spanish company Onean just launched a product that drops the most basic prerequisite for surfing: the waves. Their Electric Jet Board is a board powered by a 4400-Watt electric motor, which allows surfing waveless waters in a considerable speed without the surfer ever even setting foot on the beach. Even though waves are no longer essential to surfing, water and skills still remain indispensable.
Similar to a traditional long board, the Electric Jet Board is controlled by a wireless remote, which controls its speed to the likes -and courage- of the surfer. Two different models of the board are available for pre-order, exclusively in Europe for now, for around €3,500, which includes the board, a wireless remote, battery (which can handle about 20 minutes at full thrust), charger, leash, footstrap and fin set for the bottom of the board.
