    Jet surf

    Perfect to access those tricky areas up the river

    Not sure about carrying a deer back on it though.......

    Well that first video was about as useful as racing stripes on a telephone.

    Think something bigger would be more useful though.

    Jet surf

    We have 4 of them onboard. Awesome pieces of kit and a bargain at only $19,000 NZD. Maybe another 2-3 years when they have actually caught up manufacturing parts for them. They are very unreliable at the moment and need a decent budget and supply of spares (can be hard to get) to keep them running.
    But glassy water or smooth waves shit they are good fun. But they draw more than a jet ski and only get 45mins to a tank of fuel and about 2-3 hours before the battery is dead.
    Nice and loud 2 stroke to piss off everyone around. Get them up to 55kph and chase down boats with big wakes is a good laugh you can surf just off the stern.
    If you google Kai Lenny jet surf you can see them being used in big surf in Hawaii.

    First video could have done with a bit more short chop, but good effort

    Good point, think that would ruin the video though

    Had another blat on one this afternoon. Tricky to tune the carb right. Bogging down at full throttle.
    Someone used one to to a guy on a foil board into the surf in Portugal the other day.
