Fortunately, and despite rumours of cancellation, the official MotoSurf WorldCup testing initially scheduled from today Wednesday 12 April in Benidorm is still on schedule! However due to declined authorisations until the very last minute, organisers had to be amazingly efficient and responsive to move the event location from Benidorm to Altea. Further Detail.
Jetsurf Factory in cooperation with Jetsurf Spain have been working together so the MotoSurf WorldCup 2017 season is supposed to be kicked off tomorrow — Wednesday April 12— by an official four days testing programme in the beautiful area of Benidorm on the Spanish coast. The pre-season testing is meant as a unique opportunity for the world's fastest jetsurf riders to check their fitness before the season starts.
Unfortunately, it has been quite difficult to provide further details about the event over the past weeks as organisers have been shy on keeping the community posted. We're hoping this lack of communication is not announcing some bad news or imminent event cancellation.
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.”
