This electric surfboard makes surfing look easy.

Meet the X-Jet Extreme, an e-surfboard renowned for its unparalleled speed capabilities.

Supercar Blondie’s Tuesday Leroux had the chance to take it to the water for a test drive.

And there was no need to worry about the wave conditions: this board is powered by a killer battery and controlled via a remote.

Thanks to modern technology, there are plenty of ways to spice up a trip to the beach.

From enjoying a dip while a Cold War-era fighter jet flies over you, to trying out a half-bike, half-plane water ebike.

E-surfboards are gaining popularity for their reliability in creating a surfing experience even in waveless conditions.

The X-Jet Extreme stands out as a leader among electric surfboards.

Crafted out of carbon fiber, it weighs just 50 pounds, making it one of the lightest e-surfboards in its category.

Powering the X-Jet Extreme is a high-capacity 3,670kW battery, complemented by a wireless throttle and balance leash.

Featuring four power levels, the X-Jet Extreme accommodates both beginner and advanced surfers, easily switching between touring, racing, or freestyling modes.

There is also a magnetic kill switch, which will immediately turn off the board if the rider falls.

Tuesday Leroux set the board up for a test spin by attaching the carbon fiber fin using the provided tools, enhancing the board’s stability.

Next, she paddled it into the water, inserted the battery, and was immediately ready to experience breakneck speeds along the coast.

One of these e-surfboards will set you back $10,990, and it’ll be an extra $695 if you want the cool all-terrain transport wheels seen in the video.

On a single charge, the X-Jet Extreme can cover a distance of more than 19 miles.

But what really sets it apart is its speed, able to reach a remarkable 42 mph, no waves needed.
