Jetsurf founder Martin Sula is the first in the row of industry interviews in the times of COVID-19. While some countries are starting to open up and first Jetboarders and eFoilers are already back on the water, the industry certainly got hit by the pandemic. How much is what we wanted to find out from different founders and CEOs of the industry.
We got a product demonstration from Jetsurf founder Martin Sula in January at boot 2020 in Dusseldorf, Germany. You can find the video interview below. The Jetsurf Electric is now shipping and we expect our own board later in May. Stay tuned for a detailed review in June.
One thing upfront. Martin is known for short and exact answers, so please don’t wonder about the short feedback. Compared to the other interviews coming he shares his feedback in 25% or less of the words. This is efficiency 😉 But that’s fine, the facts are interesting anyways and I was surprised about the ratio between electric and petrol powered boards. But read the interview yourself underneath the boot video demonstration.
Interview with Jetsurf founder Martin Sula in May 2020:
We already delivered over 30 units to the end customers
We expecting that we will be around 30% Electric and 70% Petrol
Not so much, we are little bit limited with the logistic, but the factory running in 80% working mood.
You never now😃However our focus for now is on models 2021.
This is secret.
We also know about some troubles in Austria. However all our boards are CE certificated with EU and USA valid certification on the emissions, so in the countries where the clients have to do the registration we dont have any problems.
We have now around 50 resellers around the world and they covering all continents.
We like this idea and the conception, but our focus is for now in different type of the watertoys.
Price under this price point for a premium product is for now not the reality.
As we said, Martins answers are short but precise. Please see also our interview with Martin from February 2018 to learn more about the beginning of Jetsurf Factory.
