Airboard Personal Hovercraft


Fly your very own personal hovercraft, identical to those used in the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games! Rides on a cushion of air to create a sensation that combines flying and skiing.

The Airboard is a small gasoline powered personal hovercraft that rides on a cushion of air. The rider uses a combination of balance and skill to cause varying degrees of contact with the ground to change direction and effect control. The sensation is best described as a combination of flying and skiing.

Easy to Ride
The Airboard has an electric start. Simply start it up, hop on board, adjust the throttle and away you go. By using varying degrees of weight transfer, the Airboard can be made to respond in different ways - sharp or slow turns, 360º turns and sliding turns are all possible. As your skills increase so does the range of exciting manoeuvres you can perform.
The Airboard accelerates quickly to a top speed of 25 kph (15 mph).

Easy to Control
There are two levers on the handle bar - One for lift (engine speed) and one for thrust. By leaning back a small thrust wheel at the rear of the vehicle can be brought into contact with the ground to assist acceleration. When flying the rider simply leans to the left to turn to the left, leans to the right to turn to the right. Stopping is attained by either a sharp turn or letting go of the controls.

Easy to Maintain
The four stroke petrol engine is manufacture by one of the worlds largest manufacturers and needs only periodic maintenance. All wearing components, such as filters and friction pads, are easily serviced by the user.

The Airboard can be used any firm reasonably level surface such as mown grass, asphalt, pavement etc., or any packed dense surface that is free of stones and litter. The Airboard is not suitable for use on water!

Ideal for beginners & skilled riders (OVER 14 YEARS OF AGE)
