Moto Surf Grand Prixs & FIDSM
The FIDSM Moto Surf GPs are organized by the Fédération Internationale du Surf Motorisé (FIDSM) which was founded in 2012 and held its first Moto Surf GP race in Brno, Czech Republic the same year. FIDSM has created one of the most advanced, safe and affordable motorsports in the world by presenting the Moto Surf GP Race Championship. The Jetsurf Raceboards, the race equipment used, are ultra lightweight high-tech water machines, with the ability to be transported via person, car, boat, and plane (as personal luggage on international/domestic carrier flights). This allows all MSGP Racers to travel easily around the world together with their race equipment— a unique attribute in comparison to other motorized vehicles and sports. Even more, with the Jetsurf Raceboards weighing as little as 15kg, the kinetic energy is minimal and so there is little to no danger to the racers. Combining excitement with safety and fun has made Moto Surf extremely popular among famous WRC, F1, Moto GP and Red Bull Air Race Pilots who are now training and racing with Jetsurf boards.
Jetsurf started of as a fun side project of Dr. Martin Sula. He took upon the idea of engine-powered surfboards which has been around since the 1960s, but always failed because they were too heavy, underpowered and eventually losing out to Jetskis. However, after 8 years of development, testing, re-development and re-testing, Dr. Martin Sula released the first market-ready Jetsurf in 2008—that is the world’s first personal watercraft that could easily transported as luggage. Today, all power boards are produced in one factory using the highest standards of production technology and utilizing the best materials and components currently produced in the EU to guarantee maximum precision and efficient service.
Swatch Free4Style is an annual three-day event in Estavayer-le-Lac, Switzerland that lends visibility and support to increasing popular FMX, jet-ski,wakeboard and motorized surf competitions. With thousands of devoted spectators, it is considered one of the best open-air music and sports festivals in Europe.
