Swagtron has been working hard to release the Swagsurf Electric Jetboard in the US. We're very excited to introduce it to the East Coast of the US and recently had a chance to demo a pre-production board. What a blast that was. The SwagSurf is an excellent lightweight inflatable electric jetboard that is great for beginners. It's not the fastest jetboard out there topping out around 12-14 mph but at $2999.99 it's an excellent value for fun and good for riders of all skill levels as an entry level electric jetboard. It plays well in small surf, but if there's no waves, no problem. Make your own!
While the Swagtron SwagSurf is only available in the US, outside of the US, it is known as the Mertek S1. Contact us for details on where and how you can get a board if you're out in the Caribbean or elsewhere.

How does the SwagSurf work?
The SwagSurf jetboard uses a remote-controlled brushless DC motor that draws water in and accelerates it out at the back of the board to create thrust, propelling the board forward.
How fast does the SwagSurf go?
The SwagSurf can go as fast as 12.5 mph / 10.8 knots.
How long does the battery last?
About 45 minutes at medium speed and at least 20 minutes at max speed. How long the battery lasts depends on your riding style and what type of riding you’re doing i.e. sitting on the board and cruising won’t use as much power as racing at full throttle.
Does the SwagSurf come with anything?
Yes! The SwagSurf comes with the battery, charger, parts for the hydrofoil, remote, electric pump, hand strap, an ankle leash (with attached kill switch), a spare kill switch, a repair kit, and our handy dandy user manual.
What’s a hydrofoil?
A hydrofoil is a wing-like structure that’s sometimes attached to different watercraft like boats and jetboards. The SwagSurf's hydrofoil creates lift, slightly raising the board to reduce to water resistance and make your surfing experience smoother.
Should I use the hydrofoil?
In general, yes, depending on your weight. For surfers weighing under 143 lbs. / 65 kg, the hydrofoil is not required. However, for surfers weighing 143 lbs. / 65 kg or more, the hydrofoil is highly recommended for safety and an overall better surfing experience. If you plan on surfing in relatively shallow waters, using the hydrofoil is not recommended.
Do I have to wear a life jacket?
Per U.S. Coast Guard regulations, ALL persons using this type of watercraft must wear a life jacket that will accommodate the individual’s age, height, and weight etc. Failure to wear a life jacket may result in serious injury. Besides it being a legal issues, we care about your safety. Please always wear a lifejacket and obey all applicable laws.
How do I inflate the board?
Step 1. Lay the jetboard on a flat, even surface. Do not leave the jetboard on rocky or uneven surfaces as this may cause damage during inflation.
Step 2. Connect the hose to the side of the pump then connect the pump’s cables together via the black and yellow connectors.
Step 3. Connect the adapter to the other end of the hose if needed.
Step 4. Insert the end of the hose with the adapter into the board’s air valve and twist it 90° to lock it in place.
Step 5. Turn the red knob on top of the pump to 14 PSI. Note, 14 PSI is the recommended minimum though the board may be inflated up to 25 PSI max.
Step 6. Connect the clamps to the terminals on your car’s battery or another suitable 12V battery and press the pump’s ON button. Remember, the red clamp connects to the + terminal while the black clamp connects to the - terminal.
Step 7. Once the selected pressure has been reached, the pump will turn off automatically. The pump can be turned off at any time by pressing the OFF button.
Note: If you choose to use another pump rather than the included one, ensure that it features a gauge that allows you to measure PSI. Long periods of use can cause overheating and damage the product, do not use the pump continuously for more than 20 minutes.
Safety Alert: Check polarity (+ and -) when connecting the pump’s terminals to any battery or power source. If the terminals are not properly connected, the pump or power supply may malfunction and result in damage.
What does the kill switch do?
The kill switch cuts power to the SwagSurf’s motor immediately. The switch comes attached to the ankle leash, and kills the engine if it’s detached from the jetboard i.e. if you fall off.
Is there a warranty?
Yes, each SwagSurf is backed with a 1 year warranty to protect against manufacture defects. If you open it up and something’s wrong, let us know! If you have questions or any concerns our customer happiness team is standing by at firstname.lastname@example.org
