Well....hellfire & damnation......saw my first moto board in VB this wknd.
As predicted: they're here.
I was trying to surf the weak stuff in the North End on Monday morning with a buddy. Every 15 minutes, maybe, something would come through to ride. We both look up & out about 200 yards to where some dude is paddling his board north. He was really flying across the water. My buddy laughs & says, damn, that dude is cookin'!
I'm staring out at the guy & yes, he really was moving - - he was zooming so fast that there was spray coming from the front of his board, like a small boat would make. The guy then took a quick break from moving his arms but the board kept cranking. I called out, that's one of those 5 thousand dollar motorized boards!
That's when the reality smacked us: they're here. They're finally here. And it's only a matter of time before you see them in your lineup, brutha.
Lee the Stud, are you listening ? VB will be changed forever.

At Least You Can Say You Surfed When It Was Surfing

Walden's doing a lot of PR, starting in Hawaii. If he can get positive stuff going there....guess what...
This quote kills me. Pretty much what to expect in your lineup with this 'innovation:'
"...he was joined out in the water with his 69 year old mom who body boarded on some pretty sweet waves with a little Wavejet boost."

If they could make one that goes about 25 kts, I would love to have one to play in the river. I wouldn't be caught dead riding one on any decent break.

Limitations seem to be that you only get 30 minutes of use, the heavier you are the less benefit you'll get and I don't see any way to turn it off. Didn't see anyone wearing a leash in their videos, guess that means if you fall off you better be a fast swimmer... First it was sweepers now this? Jeesh... :P
