Product Description

Jet Board Motorized, 1960s Polished Surfboard

  • Produced from 1965 to 1968, the jet board was the design of a former Boeing Aviation engineer
  • The aluminum surfboard is powered by a 6.25 horsepower Tecumseh engine and jet propulsion system
  • Air is vented through the front of the board and exhausted through the rear nozzle, creating propulsion to move the board forward
  • The aluminum body was constructed like an airplane wing at the Sargent Fletcher Company of El Monte, California
  • The initial financing came through Alfred Bloomingdale, of the department store
  • The original cost was $1000 which was pretty expensive during the 1960s! 
  • Because of the high price tag & limited sales, only six hundred were produced over the short three year period
  • One is on permanent display at the California Surf Museum
  • Ours looks remarkably freshly finished & amazing! 
  • There are a few small dents on the surface
  • The board is untested & sold as a decorative item
  • A stand is included
