Almost 50 motorized surfboard racers from 12 countries made their way over to Sebring to compete for the trophy of the fastest racer in the Americas. And it was a blast! The city on the circuit welcomed the MotoSurf Games show at the stunning venue of Lake Jackson again after one year.
The combination of fuel-powered jetboard racing, electric jetboard racing, electric skateboards, and the JETSURF Tube fun race turned the weekend into a spectacular show full of fun, adrenaline, and new friends from the JETSURF community.
Big shoutout for all our partners for making this possible. Especially the City of Sebring, Highlands County, Epic Ride, and Airstream Ventures. Thank you!
