What is the JETSURF Electric?

If you’re interested in electric powered surfboards, look no further! The JETSURF Electric is a motorized surfboard that uses an electric motor to propel riders across the water at speeds up to 31 mph (or 50 km/h). Riding this board is like the electric version of being the Silver Surfer and allows riders to create their own waves. These boards are perfect for both beginners and professionals, as they offer a silent and powerful motor that can accelerate the board quickly and easily.

There are also several other JetSurf boards available that offer different features and benefits, so you can find the perfect board for your needs. The JETSURF Electric is the latest and most advanced model, which offers enhanced speed and maneuverability.

What do you get?

The JETSURF Electric has two boxes and a demo video. The main box comes with a full set of accessories, tools, a board bag, and the board. These accessories include a stand, a little trolley wheels for easy transport, and two starter magnets.

Starter Magnet

 

Starter Magnet

Inside of the second box features an inflatable JetSurf tube, a charger, and a battery bag with a battery. The battery is pretty heavy and weighs about the same as the board.

How it works

Once you put the magnet inside of the remote control and wait for the blue light to activate, you’re ready to ride! There are three power levels: low, medium, and high. To change levels, take the other starter magnet and insert it in the outlet near the indicator light. Each level comes with a color. Green is for low, orange is medium, and red is high. Additionally, if you pull the throttle back all the way while on you’re riding on high power, you can activate booster mode and increase your maximum speed for up to 30 seconds. While it’s always fun to reach a top speed, be mindful because it does drain the battery and decrease riding time.

What We Like About The Board

One thing that we didn’t account for in the benefits listed above is how much we enjoy the speed. Going 31 mph (or 50 km/h) is on flat water is like going wakeboarding without needing a boat. It is a different type of experience that you will only find with this model (for now).

What We Don’t Like About The Board

The trolley wheels are not the best and we recommend a beach trolley cart. This is not essential, but an upgraded carrying capacity will lead to a better experience. That said, this is just our preference and whether or not this is an issue is up to you to determine.

The Verdict

If you can manage the cost, you’re in for the surf ride of your life! At the very least, we hope this review is a sign for you to go out and surf! Thank you for reading and for more information on which boards to shop for, check out our electric surfboard buyers guide!
