Videos: Making A Jetsurf Board With A Jet Ski


Jet surfing is a relatively new sport that is gaining popularity. There are now even racing series dedicated to the sport where racers compete. Getting into the sport is not cheap however, with new board prices being the same as buying a brand new jet ski.

One such builder from Sweden is trying his own version at cutting costs by building his own. Using an old Kawasaki JS300 hull, he built his version of a Jetsurf board.

Although the forum details are in the Swedish language, we can still follow along with the build in the videos. Build 1/2 , Build 2/2 , engine testing.

As seen from the video, the initial steps taken were to remove major components from the ski and simply cut off the top deck from the hull. The next steps taken were to re-prep the top deck for the flat standing surface.

Once the new engine was sourced, the next step was to prep for installation. We imagine once the engine was located and installed, he would have routed fuel lines, cooling lines, the hand-held throttle, ect.

This was definitely a neat build and an interesting take on the jetsurf boards. We can’t wait to see some videos of this thing in action.
