Like many people, everyone here at Motosurfnation wants to buy a motosurf. It doesn’t matter which brand we look at, boards are very hard to get and often expensive because of the high demand. But if you check on Alibaba.com (the world’s biggest online commerce company) you can find them for very very cheap! Too good to be true?
We did a little survey and found dozens of retailers ready to sell us packs of ten boards as low as $2,000 each. The boards are available today and you can even receive them by Fedex in a week. For example, a Jetsurf costs between $12k to $15k but thanks to sites like alibaba, you can order one online for as low as $2,000.
TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE
Right now you can find only 3 brands on Alibaba: Jetsurf, Powerski Jetboard and Hison.
– Powerski Jetboards are being copied illegally and are being sold without permission.
– For Jetsurf boards, it’s even worse: you may never receive the boards and just lose your money or they will send you a Powerski jetboard instead.
– Hison is the only brand that looks legitimate and that actually really exists in China.
The other electric brands have been spared for the time being, but we suspect there will be illegal forgeries coming to the market very soon. So be very careful, it’s very tempting to order online but if a deal looks too good to be true, it is because it probably is!
