that guy was terrible at surfing despite having it be motored...no one is going to buy those things. you could get 4 boards for the price of one. Also, there's no point to use those when you don't have consistant huge surf. Annnnnnnnnnnnd it only last for 30 minutes..."you paddle out wait for 10 minutes for a set"...this guy is an idiot.
Not with surfers. With the 'surfin' lifestyle' people. Y'know, the ones who sport the Billabong tees & the Rip Curl shorts & the extra 30 lbs around the mid-section.
America does something better than anyone in the world: convenience.
You want to shop? 24/7 (CVS, Wal Mart, you name it)
You want food? 24/7 (fast food)
You want cash? 24/7 (ATM)
You want porn? 24/7 (Internet)
Point being, no one in this country gives a rat's ass about 'issues' as long as the AC works in the summer & the heat works in the winter, as long as the potholes are filled & the big plasma shows today's game, no one cares what the politicians are screwing us over with. Not just Yank's opinion here...! Just look at the track record.
In any event, this moto-board will catch on because it makes it convenient to surf. People who say, hell, I'm not waiting 20 mins for a set waves, this gives me any wave I want, after all my time is money.
Yah.....this will catch on.
Another thing: the technology is def there. Micro-turbines, microprocessors, the tech picture is eons advanced from the stuff that's been promulgated by nutty inventors in the past.
For the record: I'm against it. Don't need more people in the water. The SUP clowns who snake waves are bad enough. This will be worse.
I can see this being a plus for elderly surfers or disabled surfers, other than that your no better than the a$$hole who parks in the handicapped zone and skips into the supermarket.
Seriously though, when i get to be about 80 years old I would like one of these.
I've been listening to this nutjob Harold Camping on the radio recently. He's predicting the world will end on May 21 and he has tons of followers who are buying up billboard space all over, including here in Jersey. Until now, I'd pretty much been listening to him just to marvel at his weirdness and oggle the gullible nature of his followers who call in to his show. But after seeing this I think he may be right. The end is nigh. Or at least I kind of hope it is.
