Surf Without Waves on the Yujet Surfer Electric Surfboard

Surfing is awesome. Paddling around aimlessly while praying for waves isn’t. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, including better batteries and ultra-compact jet propulsion systems, surfers need to wait no more. A new breed of electric surfboards now makes it possible to surf almost anywhere there’s water — with or without waves.

YuJet Electric Surfboard Afternoon Cruise!

Yujet’s aptly named Surfer is an electric jetboard that’s designed to be fast, fun, and easy for almost anyone to ride — even without prior surfing experience. With a top speed of 24 miles per hour, it sounds like a hell of a ride. The integrated, all-electric propulsion system uses an intelligent, 36mAH battery to deliver a 16 mile range or about 40 minutes of ride time. The battery charges in just two hours, but buying a separate backup means surfers are guaranteed little downtime.

Even though the Yujet stickers for less than $10,000, it offers a similar build quality to almost any other jetboard released in the last few years. A thick, carbon fiber construction means the board is lightweight and easy to maneuver. It also makes for rock-solid durability. The deck is coated with high-quality EVA foam that’s comfortable to stand on and grippy as well. Neoprene handles at all four corners also make the board easy to carry and serve as grab points when surfers need to climb back on the Surfer directly from the water. Plus, with the battery removed, the board weighs just 20 pounds, so it’s easy to wrangle from vehicle to shore and back again. The optional wheeled cart makes the process even easier.

Electric jetboards are, of course, nothing new. We’ve previously covered the curious Waydoo Flyer — an electric hydrofoil that rides almost like a surfboard. The Ravik electric surfboard from Sweden’s Awake is Yujet’s closest competitor. The high-performance Ravik boasts a top speed of almost 35 miles per hour and charges in less than 90 minutes. But, the €15,900 (roughly USD $18,000) price tag puts it well out of reach for most consumers. Buyers can now score a Yujet Surfer with a second battery and charger for substantially less.

The Surfer Electric Jetboard is available directly through Yujet for $9,999. That price includes everything you’ll need for a day on the water. In addition to the jetboard itself, buyers get a lithium-ion battery, an intelligent battery charger, and a wireless remote with charger, plus a safety magnet and leash to make sure the board can’t get too far away from you.

Mammoth Overland’s ultra-rugged TL travel trailer has an insane amount of space
Over-specced, overbuilt, and spacious enough to sleep a family of four comfortably with room to spare.

Teardrop trailers have certainly come a long way in the last century, and especially in the last decade. The best off-road-ready models boast ultra-rugged designs built to tackle almost any terrain. The downside, however, is that their compact size means you'll need to sacrifice interior living space, and sometimes, that's just not a concession you're willing to make. Enter Mammoth Overland's all-new TL overland trailer, a beast of a travel trailer that's Apocalypse-ready and roomy enough to sleep four adults.

On the outside, the TL overland trailer feels like a curious hybrid of a teardrop trailer and a compact yet rugged travel trailer. It is indeed both, and yet neither. Stepping inside, it's easy to understand the TL (or "Tall Boy") moniker. The tall interior provides 6'3" of headroom and is plenty roomy for even your tallest friends to stand up comfortably. The floor plan is equally spacious, with room for a king-sized bed plus a modular couch that easily converts to a bed. Combined, there's room for four adults to sleep comfortably or a family of five with small-ish children. That is an absurd amount of living space for a relatively compact trailer.
