You're four? It's about the right time to start riding a jetboard! ...
Since a few years we can see here and there Stand Up Paddle Surfing Tandems of mom or dad teaming up with their little one to enjoy the ride. When it comes to jetboards, it is a little bit more confidential however in August 2016 in Prague was organized the first demo race for kids during the MotoSurf WorldCup, and just like the grown-up riders, juniors combined fun and performance.
Long before advanced jetboards entered the market, riders have been trying to solve the "lack of waves issue" that comes with conventional surfboarding.
The stress of long distance paddling, coupled with the disappointment of finding no waves to surf led inventors to crack their heads and design new models and technologies. There had to be a different way to surf regardless of the natural and weather conditions.
A surfboard that could propels itself and surf flat waters was the answer. Take a few minutes to learn a bit more about the birth and evolution of the “motorized surfboard.”
This is no longer a rumour going around ... Hamburg-based manufacturer of electric jetboards has filed for insolvency but all may not be over yet. It is now confirmed that despite raising over 800,000 euros in 2015 and 3,500,000 euros a few months ago, the company wasn't able to create a viable model and just filed for bankruptcy. However many questions remain unanswered and Motosurf Nation is keeping you posted with fresh news coming straight from Lampuga's headquarters in Hamburg.
“The preliminary insolvency proceedings could offer the possibility for fresh money and thus give the opportunity for an economic recovery” Tjark Thies.
Within a few months the German company relaunched its product portfolio, was named runner up at the Deloitte’s Rising Star award 2016, and attended the international boat shows of Dusseldorf, Miami, and Dubai.
“It is great to see how the e-mobility industry is constantly evolving. We are proud of our leading role and we always strive to meet our highest expectations of pushing the boundaries of feasibility.”
Benjamin Köhnsen, founder & CEO of Lampuga
