I'm about to Jetfoiler your plans to learn to surf this summer, because Kai Concepts has stuck a hydrofoil under a surfboard and added an electric motor to create a wild-looking water toy and transporter that's probably way, way easier to get the hang of than surfing.
The Jetfoiler will also have you covered when you go out to ride the waves and find the ocean decided not to make any waves that day. Kind of like when I go to my favorite pub for some cherry pie homemade by the owner's wife and she says, "I didn't make any cherry pie today," and I feel very forlorn until she pulls out a bottle and tells me, "But I did make some cherry moonshine!" Which is pretty much the same as cherry pie, but with the culinary equivalent of a hydrofoil and electric motor added to it.
Kai Concepts builds Jetfoilers from the same composites used in high-end race boats so the board and foil are as strong as they are light. The motor operates quietly and takes advantage of the board's low-drag design to power riders along just above the surface of lakes, rivers, and oceans.
