My pop does some handy work for clients in the mountains, and came across this motorized surfboard at a client’s house. We think it’s a 1965 JetBoard.
There were apparently not too many of them made, and of the few that remain, only one has been restored to working condition. Much faster modern variants are still being manufactured. I’m trying to see whether I can help by taking it off the owner’s hands… at the very least, I’d like to pass it on to my old boss at Wavelengths Surf Shop in Morro Bay.
