Have you ever walked on water like Jesus? In one way or another, surfing may be a lot like walking on water. It looks magical and the feeling is exhilarating when surfers stand on their boards to glide through the water’s surface!
While the experience is an unforgettable one, there can be a next level of “walking on water” through surfing. Wouldn’t it be nice to see through the surfboard and see the water beneath your feet while you surf?
It has just been made possible with this new transparent board! And it comes with just the right name, the “Jesus Board”! This surfboard comes with no stringer and it’s 90% transparent. It will make you “walk on water”.
The shapers of the board have made use of high-grade material to ensure the integrity of the board and prevent it from breaking despite having no stringer. The Jesus Board developers claim that the surfboard will be able to deliver a “smooth, fast and fun ride,” even when most of the board is transparent.
Then the issue of having a good wax job on the board, diminishing the view underneath can raise some concerns. But then again Jesus’ miracles worked in different ways. With the transparent “miracle” High-Tech clear adhesive by HexaTraction that works just like wax, anyone can easily ride the Jesus Board without loosing transparency of the board.
Here is a video showing how the transparent HexaTraction adhesive films by RSPro are installed on a board. See how it preserves the color of the board.
Put it on a transparent board and you get to keep it looking clear and you can enjoy the view of beautiful blue water underneath!
With this combo of transparent board and clear adhesive, you can definitely see the sharks underneath while you surf! The Jesus board is priced at $749, and depending on how bad you want it, it might be a price that is well worth the experience it brings, not to mention having a unique looking board to add to your quiver.
The company behind the Jesus Board will also market wakeboards and paddleboards. Just how much fun can transparent surfboards be? Well, the only real way to find out is to try riding one.
