At boot 2018 in Dusseldorf a prototype of the MagicSurf motorised surfboard was presented the first time.
The german company Carbon Sports GmbH who is known for their Jetlev-Flyer has developed the petrol powered surfboard.
At the show it was offered for 9,999 EUR plus VAT and shipping. The 1 cylinder 2 strike engine is supposed to deliver 10 HP (horsepower).
The engine is water cooled and has an electric starter. The weight will be 19 kg.
Jetlev-Flyer had also a 2 stroke prototype at the booth with 22 HP (horsepower) which is supposed to make 60 km/h and has a price of 10,999 EUR plus VAT and shipping. The weight will be 22 kg.
The MagicSurf motorised surfboards are planned to be released already in May 2018.
You have a handle which acts as the remote control for accelerating, but there is no start / stop button.
You turn on and off the board with the magnetic button connected to your security leash. Once you put the button on, the board will start automatically after 4 seconds. And it will turn off if you pull the leash which is connected to the wrist.
We were really surprised to see the MagicSurf at the show. Nobody had heard about it before and a May 2018 release date sounds kind of aggressive.
Let’s see when they will come to market how they compare to the Jetsurf jetboards.
At least the company has a lot of experience with engines in the water. Their Jetpacks which are powered by a jet unit which looks similar to a jetski is selling between 30,000 and 100,000 EUR. Ups.

Currently there is no info yet about the MagicSurf, but it is supposed to come in May 2018.
