Powerski Jet Powered Surfboard

The Powerski is the world’s first powered surfboard. It is capable of hitting speeds of up to 40mph. You can steer it just like a normal surfboard by leaning in to the turns but it has a handle attached to the front to help you navigate at it’s much higher speeds and lateral forces than a standard wave-powered surfboard. Could this be the next wave in extreme sports? Check out the video of the Powerski in action after the jump:
