Waydoo's flying surfboard soars above the water at CES 2020

Personal Mobility
[MUSIC] So we're taking a break from the show floor at CES, we've come out to Henderson, Nevada, and we are going to be playing with this toy. This is the Waydoo Flyer it's an electronic foil. On surfboard and I'm told that once you get the the rotors going here it's basically like riding on a flying surfboard. The flyer measures about five and a half feet long and just over two feet wide, making it considerably smaller than a typical surfboard or stand up paddleboard and no, it's made out of a carbon fiber composite. It weighs about 60 pounds. With a heavy duty battery accounting for about half of that, it's that battery and the 6000 watts of power it delivers to the motor. That's the beating heart of the flyer weightings website says the board has a top speed of about 25 miles per hour. The company reps told me it was more like 28 miles an hour. Whatever it is, this thing can move. Fast, scary fast. You control the speed with a handheld remote that connects to the motor by Bluetooth. There are five power levels to choose from, and a pressure sensitive trigger you pull to speed up or down. I found it pretty tricky to keep the speed constant while transitioning from a squat to standing up. The few times I achieved foiling with the board completely out of the water Were exhilarating and terrifying, the battery which takes about two hours to charge can run for roughly an hour according to Waydoo. The company is in the final stages of bringing the flyer to market for about 6500 Hundred bucks. Water sport technology turned out to be a bright spot at CES this year. And I'll be keeping an eye on the current generation of these hydro boiling devices throughout 2020. Okay, so that was really fun, very humbling. I think I started to get the hang of it, it requires some pretty good balance in not a small amount of courage. Because you get going pretty fast about 28 miles an hour at full speed there. This is the way do flyer, [UNKNOWN] ..Super cool if you have an opportunity to try it out it's really fun. [MUSIC]
