Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I would like to make you all aware of what you are buying and who you are dealing with when you purchase a jetboarder. I am an ex jetboarder dealer myself who has had multiple problems with the jetboarder product. When buying my jetboarder I was told that all jetboards are assembled in Australia and are checked 3 times before they are delivered to the customer. This was defiantly not the case with my board. When I received my board there was a hole in the piston, 2 missing engine mounts, a faulty electric system, fuel lines connected the wrong way, Cracks in the hull and no gel coat on the board.

When Jetboarder was told about this I was told I do not believe you and was advised that all jetboards are checked 3 times before leaving the factory in Australia. After checking my air way bill I found that my board had never touched Australian soil. It was sent out of China. I checked the address and found that it was the same address of the Cotrum factory?. [continued below]....
..... A company that produce a product called a Power Jetboard the best way for me to describe this product is to say its like a jetboard without jetboarder stickers.. They have 3 models the normal power jetboard, the sporting power jetboard and the Carbon fiber power jetboard. Prices start at $900 US for one jetboard with trolley and come down significantly in price depending on how many you buy.

After asking Chris at jetboarder about this I was advised that I would not be able to purchase any jetboards from that factory:. Like most things that Chris advises me this is not true anyone is allowed to purchase jetboards from this factory. This is why I have a lot of problems believing that this is a quality Australian assembled product not a cheep Chinese one and get quite offended when it is advertised as Australian assembled If you still want a jetboarder you can get one much cheeper factory direct or at I have attached an email that jetboarder sent me to show what scumbags these guys are like.

Yes its true that you have got me on many points. I told a few lies to get the sales coming in. Yes they are Chinese boards but they should still work for around 5hrs before you start to have problems. I don't belive you that the board came in broken. They allways look good new. I saw your coments on I will remind you that this is the way I provide for my family. If you stop my money from coming in I will serously pay someone to come and f*ck a 23 year old c*nt like you up. (I an alot older than you and I have done this before) Look me up on google. Before the GFC I was in the finance industry and charge 35% intrest and never had a defult or anyone say anything bad about me. coincidence???
