Surfing is so 1990....

If paddling out to that wave is getting a little too tiring, this electric body board puts you right in the water while pulling you along effortlessly.

Catch a wave with the Kymera electric body board and zip along the water at speeds of 15 MPH!

Kymera is a lightweight, motorized jet board that can send you crashing through waves to help a struggling swimmer. Mainly intended for lifeguards and search and rescue teams, it's designed to be placed in the water more quickly and easily than personal watercraft. Kymera weighs 48 pounds with the rechargeable lithium polymer battery pack, and 29 pounds without it.

The batteries power a 1,000-watt RMS brushless motor, and the average run time per charge is one hour, giving you a 5-6 mile range. It has a leaning steering mechanism with trigger throttle control.

Kymera starts at $2,500, with delivery in July. For $5,500 or more, you'll get the board and equipment including a transport roof rack that doubles as a solar charger. It can juice the board in 3.5 hours in full sunshine.
