Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Jetboard was an early powered longboard surfboard. It is one of the earliest, if not the earliest motorized sufboard, produced from 1965 to 1968. The original designer was a former engineer from Boeing Aircraft. It was designed to use an aircraft trim tab roller control with your foot for acceleration. There was a simple ingenious safety OFF switch, using a magnet that connected two electrical terminals across a point, located close by the engine's surface watertight hatch. The rider would attach a strap to his ankle with a flexible wire line to the magnet. When he fell off, it would stop the engine.show more
