Cape Town surf folk were treated to an exhibition type session down at Muizies this weekend, as Corey Lopez – ambassador for the Wavejet propulsiuon system, demonstrated the units ‘out there’ capabilities.
Cass Collier was seen in the mix, and a bunch of other CT surfers too. Groms and ballies alike!

The Wavejet propulsion system fits into the bottom deck of any customised surfboard or craft. The boards have a plug that can be inserted into the propulsion system bay, when you really feel like paddling again! Or while your Wavejet unit is on charge. Reportedly, the unit can power you at full speed for an hour, and is remotely operated with a wristwatch, that also cuts the engine if the Wavejet moves more that 10 feet or so away from the rider.

The Wavejet is receiving a warm welcome as it’s applications are being realised up and down the coast. Surfing is just one activity – these units can be adapted to a diverse range of craft including but not restricted to rescue and fishing ski’s, canoes and kayaks, fishing SUP type craft and even the Crocka Ski of the old days…in fact, there will surely be a host of new designs eminating from the huge innovation that the Wavejet unit actually is.
