Jetson is the new jet-propelled surfboard to hit the market.

Today, it's easier to duck dive, paddle out, and catch waves.

The first brand to open this inevitable market was Wavejet with its battery-powered aluminum impellers. Everyone understood when and where to use it.

Jetson is different.

The surfboard offers a built-in panel with button controls: a stop button and four others for different power levels (eco boost, paddle out, duck dive, and take-off).

The surfboard shapes were designed by Marcos Slash, in Spain.

There are three models available - an 8', a 6'8'', and a 6'4''. The battery has an autonomy of four hours.

The surf gadget has its small jet installed in the surfboard's tail.

"Every detail, every piece has been designed with a view to maximizing the surfing experience: autonomy, size, jet geometry, weight, boost, power, operating controls, automatisms," Jetson explains.

The brand believes that the jet-propelled surfboard should be used as a traditional board.

The boosting power is a function for key moments such as paddling out, catching waves, or when trapped in rip currents.
