Too much trolling here, get a life guys... For those who buy this, just make sure you are first comfortable with normal longboard in bigger waves before going with jets. And find a friend to carry it to the beach, it's really heavy. Good luck!
How long does it take a drained battery to fully charge?
I'm picturing somebody jetting out to the line up, catching a wave in. Battery dies, paddles back in. Charges wavejet in the car for 4 hours. Paddles back out. Repeat.
Anyway, seems like the cons far outweigh the pros for 99% of surfers. Appreciate an actual review instead of the usual.
the wavejet is for people like jesse billaur(the handicap guy who broke his back) and older people who still want to surf.i see nothing kookish about this.garret McNamara,one of the greatest big wave pioneers that ever lived,cory lopez,gerry lopez,and a few others.some people see the advantages,others see the cons.just like those floatation vests that blow up when u pull the cord.some can argue its for kooks whos afraid of big holddowns,others can argue its a life saving device.regardless it suits certain people.
pretty soon,im sure youll see guys like shane dorian dropping into 20ft by 40ft chopes on wavejets,and every little kook will be bumrushing their local shop in search of these
Recharge takes 2-3 hours only. The charge time gives 20-25 min of power, enough for 2 hour session
Anyone else is using it in the world, or it's just me? Come on, wave-jetters!!!!
p.s. i used it just once since last post, actually today, that's why i even here. I find it too much of trouble to recharge, carry, handle, clean etc. In most cases I just grab an old school board.
