Why Jet surf is still so expensive04 Oct 2018by Top Jet SurfingUseful
Jet-surfs are boards with a motor that allow surfing not only on waves, but also when calm on lakes, rivers, bays. Today, there are many different models of jet-surfs on the market, but they are quite expensive: the minimum cost is 3,900 €. Let's find out why.
High cost price. The manufacturers are using powerful motors and batteries, durable carbon body, the latest technology. Development of a new model takes 2-3 months. To justify the cost of production, manufacturers are forced to sell products at such a high price.
Minimal competition. There are hundreds of phone manufacturers, thousands of home appliances, and there are very few in the field of jet-surfing. The competition is practically absent, so manufacturers can set high prices for their products. If new brands will appear on the market and will find a cheaper way to produce jet-surfs without losing quality, the big players will also be forced to lower the prices.
Low popularity. Jet surfing is not widespread yet. Therefore, companies spend a lot of money on attracting customers and advertising. This also affects the cost, increases it - the more money the manufacturer spends on promotion, the more is the cost of the products.
Most likely, in 2-3 years the prices for jet-surfs will start to decrease. This will be due to the popularization of this sport, the emergence of new technologies and players in the market.
