Every surfer wants to try at least once to conquer the big waves, which are essentially huge wall of salt water. To get to these waves, you need some means of towing, by swimming it problematic to do. As a rule, it is the surfers use the assistance of the watercraft that is towing athlete. This creates some logistical plan, because the jet ski rental is not cheap, especially for the day.
With the advent of the new WaveJet boards you will no longer need assistance. WaveJet is a new motorized Board that allows you to get to the lineup four times faster. Thanks to its power and resulting speed performance, with this Board you’ll catch a big wave without aquabike.
Unlike previously known Board JetBoard, cited in motion by a small motor, the new Board is used with a special paddle. In fact WaveJet is a reactive system that can be installed on any boat, but the company offers and is ready boards, on which this system is already installed. In addition to the oars in the WaveJet system uses a specialized panel with impellers. This panel can be used with a variety of surfboards, rescue boards and paddleboards. The panel is placed on the base Board, two aluminum impeller allows to reach a speed of 19.3 km/h. Wireless remote control, wrist surfer, enables you to control the speed. The same control panel monitors the battery level and reduces the speed of the dvigaetl’, if the Board is too far away from the surfer. The engine runs on a lithium-ion battery and provides up to 45 minutes cordless operation. Since it is assumed that the motors work from time to time (for example for transporting boards and athlete on liap), the system can reach several hours. The WaveJet system was invented by engineer-inventor Mike Reilly.
He loves to catch big waves and tried to ride towed the jet ski back in the late 90s To the invention WaveJet pushed him purely pragmatic reasons: rent aquabike were costly, and presented at that time on the market boards were too heavy. Thus was born the WaveJet system.
After receiving the patent engineer has unveiled a prototype of its Board. In testing of the invention was attended by many surfers, professional rescuers and other professionals in the industry. It is planned that in the future the WaveJet system will be compatible with the kayaks. Well-known conqueror of big waves Garrett McNamara used WaveJet to ride 50-foot wave off the coast of Portugal. And though his world record he set, using traditional towing the watercraft, the system WaveJet great future.
