Since their release, drones have taken the world by storm with almost everyone wanting one—which is not surprising, they do look awesome. They’ve become so popular, people are even hosting drone surfing and racing events!
If you’ve been living under a rock for the past year or so, a drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle that is remotely controlled by a person on the ground. Drones—also known as quadcopters—come in different shapes and sizes and are built with high quality cameras for people who want to record videos from above.
Drones are made from lightweight materials in order to increase movement while flying as well as keeping a low weight. They have four highly powered blades which provide the device with all its power as well as detection systems to avoid any collisions. It’s safe to say they’re pretty high tech and that’s why they cost as much as they do.
Some extreme sports enthusiasts came up with the idea of using the power of their quadcopter to guide them across the water while riding a surfboard—and so, drone surfing was born. It’s basically a badass form of wakeboarding and it looks amazing! It’s definitely something we at Haardvark want to try.
