Kymera offers a new experience in the water with their brightly coloured, battery operated Body Boards.
Body boards have seen several innovations come through the sporting goods industry for water sports, but this creation has set it self apart in personal watercrafts. It won the Popular Science 2011 Invention of the Year award and was featured on the popular ‘Shark Tank’ television series for inventors, which has put this cool product in the spotlight.
Invented by Jason Woods, the Kymera Body Board is the world’s first line of electric jet body boards. The Kymera body board is capable of reaching speeds up to 25 miles per hour, and is lightweight at about 35 pounds, making it easy to transport to the water by one person. Which means, you can get into the water and start the fun with no need for a ramp. A 1,000-watt RMS brushless motor propels it and the battery offers an average 1- hour running time before a charge is needed. With an intuitive leaning steering mechanism with throttle control at the handle, it is easy for an individual to hop on, lay down and jet away.
With different models ranging in speed, functionality and battery life, the Kymera is gaining in popularity for consumer markets and for lifeguards or search and rescue markets.
