Combination of Water Sports and Technology

There are many extreme and non-extreme water sports. In each one there is a corresponding evolution and technology. In extreme water sports that use natural forces such as air and waves for fuel, there is designed technology. In mechanical extreme water sports, there is the technology of engineering and design. Below we present the most impressive extreme water sports that have appeared in recent years.

JETBOARD

Motorized surfboard can “fly” over water at 40 Km / h

It is controlled with a manual control and can be used in calm or wavy waters. It definitely looks like a very fun “game” and has the following:

  • High tech lithium battery

The battery offers the most complete safety components on the market. It lasts up to an hour – per rider weight / speed and is fitted with an anti-corrosion protection, IP67 waterproof housing which allows it to be transported and installed safely. The battery is thus easily replaceable and rechargeable. Just plug it in and get started.

Characteristics: Battery management system (BMS) with waterproof safety features. High energy density. Easily interchangeable and rechargeable. Weight: 30 lbs.

  • Wireless handheld controller

With full control in the palm of your hand, you can easily adjust your speed for an easy, smooth ride. By simply pressing the accelerator you can go up to 25 miles per hour or the engine will automatically shut off when the lever is released. Battery speed and rate are displayed on the screen. The waterproof controller also floats and comes with a strap to hold and secure in your hand.

Characteristics: Bluetooth wireless technology. Magnetic actuator. Security. Projection screen. Automatic power adjustment.

  • Silent electric motor

The engine is designed to be your own extension. Unlike gas motors, electric motors do not lag behind and deliver maximum torque on demand. This immediate response allows you to have complete control of the engine. There is no delay from the rider entering the engine power performance making your ride not only safer but also exciting.

Characteristics: Engine controller. Silent electric motor. It is submerged in water. Hydrodynamic design of torpedoes. Propeller ducts

  • Foil-Design

A unique feeling that combines the senses of surfing and flying all in one.

Characteristics: Complete carbon construction. Waterproof. The wings have been shown solely to give a sense of proportion. It is divided into separate sections. Board and motor weight with Foil: 30 kg.

FLYBOARD

How do dolphins feel when they jump out of the water and then take their spectacular dives?

What would it be like if we had the strength to fly over the waves making daring bumps? Some (risky enough) who indulge in the sport of waterboarding Flyboarding know this.

My opinion is that it is not difficult. It may seem like it, but once you start, you quickly realize what you need. The way you tilt your body and the position of your legs also determine your direction.

It is a little difficult in finding balance, but after some effort it is certain that you will succeed.

It is completely safe as long as we follow the rules and there are no restrictions.

Technical Description

Flyboard is essentially a jet ski in which a large tire is attached. The jet ski sucks water, which is then removed with great force, with the result that the rider attached to it gains great speed and makes impressive figures in and out of the water. With 150 horsepower, the Flyboard offers a unique experience with lifting up to 15 meters above the water.

My opinion is that it is not difficult. It may seem like it, but once you start, you quickly realize what you need. The way you tilt your body and the position of your legs also determine your direction.

It is a little difficulty in finding balance, but after some effort it is certain that you will succeed.

It is completely safe as long as we follow the rules and there are no restrictions.
