Sun, sea and fun – Flavien Neyertz knows how to ride off on an adventure. The Managing Director of Luxury Water Toys in Monaco talks to Engel & Völkers Yachting about a perfect day on a luxury yacht charter in the Mediterranean.
Flavien Neyertz, what circumstances make a perfect day on the water?
A perfect day on the water is when you experience a feeling that will make your day unforgettable. I’m a real water sports enthusiast, so I get my pleasure from discovering new products, then finding and pushing my limits to explore new sensations.
If I’m looking for fun on the water, which products would you suggest?
It’s hard to pick up just one; nowadays there are many products out there that deserve to be tried out. I personally like board sports and the sense of freedom. I like to be able to control my speed, my direction, and my ride in order to make the most of my experience on water. I would recommend the JetSurf as a first choice for the multi-use possibilities and endless sensations it offers.
Could you describe the experience when using the JetSurf?
The JetSurf is a unique experience and a very exclusive sensation. It’s an unusual hybrid product between water sports and motor sports. You can ride it in any water conditions, from waves to flat water, rivers, lakes, tracks and behind a boat. The JetSurf is easy to get the hang of and it gives you the freedom to choose exactly what you want to experience at any given time.
How does the JetSurf work and where does the technology come from?
The JetSurf is a motorised surfboard made of carbon fibre that has been designed by a Formula 1 engineer. Its two high-tech engines and light weight of just 15 kg keep the JetSurf running for two hours on just one tank. Its top speed is 55 km/h, but you can regulate this and limit the top speed for younger riders and beginners.
Is it simple to use?
We always deliver the JetSurf with personal training. This takes an hour on average, but after around 15 minutes most beginners are already standing on the board and riding around. You also don’t need any specific permit to ride the board and there is no age restriction.
What are the up-and-coming trends?
We are just in the process of launching new accessories that will bring about the evolution of the JetSurf: special kit designed to simply be added onto the existing product for even more new sensations.
