If you want to pursue the ancient art of carving water with a board but don’t fancy drowning in a riptide either, you might just want to take a look at the Carver electric jet board from Onean. While traditional surfing generates propulsion by the surfer careening down a wave, the Carver instead takes matters into its own hands, installing a 4400W dual-core brushless electric motor powering an axial water pump controlled by a handheld remote. The result is the instant ability to tackle previously unsurfable areas, such as placid rivers, or narrow ravines, as shown in the video above. Also available is the wider Manta board, which is designed for relaxed cruising rather than high-speed gliding. Pre-order one of the electric surfboards online now by clicking here.
