He stands about a foot tall and the board in the clip is powered by a brushless motor running on 7-8cells. The Kyosho RC Surfer kit originally hit the market around 2000 (so yeah slightly vintage) and have since been discountinued by Kyosho. Some original kits as well as the new improved "Tubey" design are still available through the original inventors. You can email Brendon Heidtman in Australia for more info. brendonheidtman@yahoo.com.au

My friend Neil in the UK also has some original kits available.

Be careful though.......this is one of those RC toys that is highly addictive :-)

I've attached a couple of images of the new Tubey design.

That's some nice computer graphic work there. There are pro surfers who can't surf that well. Looks true to life until the air rollo manuever. Impossible for an RC Surfer to do that, unless you installed some compressed air with thrusts like the Space Shuttle.

Great video nonetheless.

Are these cool things anywhere still actually available ?

I also found rcsurfrider.com but they are all SOLD OUT

I have emailed that UK site tho, hoping they still got some.

Hey Gerco,

I saw one in the hobby store the other day, it is a direct rip off of the Kyosho one and doesn't look much different.....retailed for $100 australian complete!!! So to answer your question, you can get them.

Ebay has a few surfers going around at the moment, there are a couple available to australia however there is a dude selling one right now based in the UK that is highly modified and has all of the good bits. There are a couple of kyosho ones still available, I had a return email from brendonheidtman@yahoo.com.au the other day and he tells me that there are some left.....they are going quickly though for $400AUD.

Glad to see everyone is enjoing the clip. It's been a while since I've dropped in here. I have a new rc surfing trailer up on my website. You can view it here;


The Radio Waves DVD rocks and can be had for only $19.95 plus S&H. Buy any two DVD's and worldwide shipping is FREE. Check out the review page to see what folks think of the movie.


Like Deestingray mentioned Brendon is the guy to talk to about getting an orignal kit or the new improved Tubey design.

Here's the rc surfers web site:http://www.rcsurfers.com.au/
