Take a look at this when you get a minute. Ok admittedly it all looks a bit heavy and cumbersome for a small wave shortboard at the moment but you can bet your bottom dollar that they’ll refine this technology and it will get slicker, quicker and lighter. With prices at the moment set around an eye watering US$5,000 it will be a while before you see them flying around all over the place but, as with all things, that will come down over time. And when it does then what might this bring? Being able to boost 20ft airs, make un-makable closeout barrels, paddle out to offshore bombies in minutes with no effort required. Then again can you imagine 50 people of varying skill sets flying around at high speed at crowded T’Others, scary, very scary.
