    Wave Jet Review

    I knew that title would get your attention.

    So, I saw this 'review' of the Wave Jet (all 40 secs of it):
    http://www.wired.com/reviews/2011/07/wavejet/

    And was wondering: has anyone even seen one of these operating in surf? Or better yet, anyone rode the Wave Jet? Are there any online reviews for it?

    The only time I seem to 'see' the Wave Jet is in the ads with GMac on the thing.

    Maybe I'll use some of my Social Security bennies & purchase a Wave Jet when I turn 68. Just to go out every single day in any blown out conditions. Until then, just curious as to where the technology took this in terms of performance.

    no matter how much it ruffles your surfing purity ethic, it's probably a lot of fun to ride. i'd jump on one in a heartbeat

    It might be fun for what it is but it isnt surfing. Surfing is generating speed from the wave, without the motor pushing you that thing would sit there like a waterlogged soft top.

    Wouldn't mind having that to cruise around the intercoastal. No way I would want to be seen on one in the surf.

    I'd like an SUP wave jet to use for fishing.

    still inferior to the Roy Stuart. Simple physics.

    Even a jet engine couldnt overpower the rocker on a Roy Stuart board.
