Catch a wave with Kymera electric body board
If paddling out to that wave is getting a little too tiring, this electric body board puts you right in the water while pulling you along effortlessly.
Kymera is a lightweight, motorized jet board that can send you crashing through waves to help a struggling swimmer. Mainly intended for lifeguards and search and rescue teams, it’s designed to be placed in the water more quickly and easily than personal watercraft.
The focus of a $250,000 Kickstarter campaign, Kymera weighs 48 pounds with the rechargeable lithium polymer battery pack, and 29 pounds without it.
The batteries power a 1,000-watt RMS brushless motor, and the average run time per charge is one hour, giving you a 5-6 mile range. It has a leaning steering mechanism with trigger throttle control.
