I’m sure you are all chomping at the bit for an update so here is where we are at in a nutshell.
We continue to test, learn, improve, and repeat the process for an optimum jet drive. We have 3D printed dozens of variations of water vanes, nozzles shapes… and tested our 4 different impellers with each variation over the past two weeks. We are getting close to peak performance for our specific jet/motor setup that will provide maximum thrust with the least current (amps) few more rounds of tests and we should be flying!
Things are getting really exciting and today Miles Hammond from Studio63.ca was able to take our most recent testing results from yesterday and help refine and CAD up the improved parts quickly, and both my 3D printers are working printing parts for the next round of tests tomorrow or Tuesday.
This week our VeFoil board arrives and as soon as we complete jet testing we will be installing the jet and getting out on the water!
Stay Tuned as this week it all comes together Jet, remote, and board!
Anyways, our goal and focus from day one have been to create a multi-use jet system, waterproof remote control, and board that is commercial grade so you can jet surf, efoil, and SUP from one board. Everything we make is built to have smooth throttle control, super stable board for fun, easy flying, and so the equipment can withstand the hardest of elements like hitting bottom, getting dropped, or from renters jet surfing or efoiling.
Through our creative designs, and group/bulk purchasing power when we launch hopefully in the coming month and we will pass huge savings on to fell enthusiasts/supporters/backers like you who share our passion for being out on the water and who are helping us with funding and/or insight during this development stage.
Thank you all for your comment, insight, and support, we could not have gotten to where we are without you!
Take a look at a few photos from this week:
