While in the jetski you sit as on a motorcycle, here you sit side by side on ergonomic seats or on a bench," said Mr Würzburg," and you will never fall out or throw over with this boat."

"The advantage of the Surfglider® is that no trailer or hook is needed. It can be dismantled in 15 minutes an transported on the roof or holder of the car."
