We recently attended the California Surf Film Festival, benefiting the California Surfing Museum in Oceanside, where, as luck would have it, the museum was opened for attendees. There, we spotted the ginormous beast of a surfboard, pictured here. A company called the Jet Board Corporation created a motorized surfboard made of aircraft aluminum. (That’s powerful stuff!) The creator, Alfred Bloomingdale, was said to have a distaste for paddling. Apparently, the engine was made from a chain saw engine. Over 600 motorized surfboards were made. Cool stuff!
