The answer is both. Five of our models are fuel-powered. Recently, we've also added a fully electric version.
The max load of the Adventure DFI and theAdventure DFI PLUS is 264 lbs. The max load of the Race DFI and the Titanium DFI is 220 lbs.
The board is built to run on the water, not to idle on the water. The board can easily hold your body weight while the board is moving however you should not chill on the board while the board is idle.
Absolutely. You can visit one of our JetSurf Academies or Ambassador locations and enjoy either a full JetSurf Academy session with the Academy trainers of the "try before you buy" session with our ambassadors.
The fuel-powered boards weigh less than 41 lbs. The JetSurf Electric weighs 64 lbs (this is including the battery)
Absolutely. The board can be registered as a personal watercraft at your local DMV (tag agency). All you need to register your board is a certificate of origin and the invoice. We strongly suggest registering the board after the purchase.
Yes, JetSurf USA issues a certificate of origin for all new boards. This certificate of origin is recognized by tag agencies.
They are all completely manufactured in theCzech Republic, Europe at the MSR Engines factory. MSR Engines is proud to be the officially certified aviation business supplier, sourcing parts for RedBull Air Race champion Martin Sonka.
JetSurf USA - the only official distributor of the JetSurf boards in the U.S. is located in Miami, FL. Come and visit our factory showroom!
Regular riders put their left foot forward and hold the control handle in their left hand. Goofy riders put their right foot forward and hold the control handle in their right hand.
The top speed of our JetSurf boards ranges from 33 mph to 40 mph depending on the model.
The cruising range of our fuel-powered boards is around 50-55 minutes on one fuel tank (0.75 gallons). The cruising range of theJetSurf Electric is around 35 minutes on one fully charged battery pack.
The big advantage of the fuel-powered JetSurfboards is that you can check it in as a surfboard with TSA and fly to some exotic destinations. You can not do this with the JetSurf Electric because of its Lithium battery.
The fuel tank needs to be completely dry and removed from the board. It needs to travel in your backpack. Same with the ICU. Remove it from the board and put it into your backpack.
Rinse and dry the board completely and wrap with a few layers of bubble wrap. Check it in as a surfboard at the airport.
Absolutely. You can ride the JetSurf boards in salt water. Around 50% of our customers in the U.S. ride the boards in saltwater. Just remember you need to rinse the JetSurf board after every salt water ride to keep the board in good condition.
THE LEARNING PROCESS
Not really. Of course it makes it easier to have a prior board sports experience (longboard, wakeboard, snowboard, ...) but it is not necessary. Even riders without any prior board sports experience usually pick it up within 30 minutes and manage to stand up and ride.
Absolutely. JetSurfing is actually a little bit like riding a dirt bike on the water. The sense of stability and the experience with using the throttle will definitely help you learn how to ride aJetSurf.
Looking for easier way to learn how to ride a JetSurf? Would you like to let your children share the board or just welcome more buoyancy? Then, the JetSurf Tube will definitely be your favorite. A rubber tube fitted to your board will create one of the most stable surfing crafts. This inflatable accessory will not take up too much space for transport and can easily be strapped to all JETSURF models.
THE SHOPPING PROCESS
The price of the boards ranges from $9900 USD to $14900 USD depending on the model.

DIFFERENCES IN BOARDS
What is the difference between the motorized surfboard and e-foil?
E-foils and JetSurf boards are two very different products. These are the main differences:
1) Most of JetSurf boards are fuel-powered but most foils are battery-powered.
Fuel-powered means that you need to operate with gas, but that means you don't need to wait a few hours every 35 minutes so you can charge the battery.
2) E-foils are flying above the water surface which is an interesting feeling but you are disconnected from the water, and you cannot carve as much. On the other hand, you can rip it pretty hard on theJetSurf board.
3) The big advantage of the fuel-powered JetSurfboards is that you can check it in as a surfboard with TSA and fly to some exotic destinations. You cannot do this with the Lithium battery of the e-foil.
We currently don't sell e-foils.
JetSurf was established in 2010 and we've quickly become the market leader in the motorized surfboards industry. We currently own about 85% of the motorized surfboard market and we are the only brand competing in the UIM MotoSurf World Championship racing series.
The main difference is the Alternator. Even the fuel-powered boards have a small battery unit that powers the starter, bilge pump, etc... so you need to charge the board after approximately 4-5 hours of cruising time (in other words: once or twice a week if you ride it often). The Adventure PLUS has the alternator so the charging process is significantly reduced.
· The other difference is the bindings set up. TheAdventure DFI has a double bindings set up so you can share the board withGoofy and Regular riders. The Adventure DFI PLUS has a single bindings set upso it makes it more difficult to share the board with others.
· On the other hand, the Adventure PLUS comes withmore accessories and a better travel bag.
· The standard Adventure DFI is a better fit forfamilies. The Adventure DFI PLUS is a better fit for long-distance trips andisland hopping.
The shape of the hull is different. TheAdventure DFI is more stable on the water so the learning process is easier. On the other hand, the Race DFI is less stable and more agile.
The Adventure DFI comes with a double bindings set-up so you can share the board with Regular and Goofy riders. The Race DFI comes with a single bindings set-up so it is a better fit for individuals.
Generally, the Adventure DFI is a perfect family board for beginners. The Race DFI is a great choice if you are ready for more agile ride with sharp turns and jumps.
