1965 Jet Board

On Water

First Time Out


First Time Out

Well we have only had it out once so far due to the sump system leaking, but now that we have repaired it we think that it will be much more reliable. I was too worried about leaks and the engine reliability to stand up on the board. I think we'll be much more confident the next time and actually start having some fun with it.

Click the image below for a Quicktime movie. This is the board with the throttle wheel all the way to the stop so it doesn't go much faster than 10 MPH. More of a cruiser than the modern motor powered surfboards. I'll post more info here as we get more experience.
