BomBoard's Wave Bomber Watercraft Makes a Big Splash on Indiegogo; New Patented, High-Powered Modular Personal Watercraft Raises Over Seventy-Percent of Its Crowdfunding Campaign Goal During Its First Week

Boat Captains, Surfers and Beach Visitors Will All Love the Sturdy, Modular Design, Which Allows the BomBoard Watercraft to Be Transported in Four Separate Pieces and Then Reassembled at the Lake/Beach

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Dec 4, 2015) - Eliminating three primary boating ownership hurdles including high initial purchase price, trailer transportation and boat storage, BomBoard's wave bomber personal watercraft (www.bomboard.com) meets the tremendous pent up demand from Millennials that would love to find a way around these barriers to boat ownership so they can have more fun with their friends at the beach, lake or river on the weekends, spring break and summer vacations.

One of the best features of the BomBoard's wavebomber watercraft is its cost-effective price. With a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of only $3,995, the BomBoard provides the benefit of being very affordable and can be purchased easily by anyone with a credit card.

The BomBoard Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign has already sold out of its early-adopter perks. On Thursday, BomBoard introduced a new perk, which offers a fully refundable down payment of $1,995 that will allow customers to save $1,000 and a second $995 perk that will allow supporters to save $500. Both perks allow customers more time to pay to pay the full amount or finance the balance at time of shipping. 

After the price, BomBoard's most interesting feature is its patented, lightweight modular design. Unlike other personal watercraft competitors such as Kawasaki Jet Skis, Yamaha Wave Runners and Sea-Doo Sparks, the BomBoard watercraft does not require the customer to buy a $1,500 trailer, spend several hundred dollars per year on trailer state license plates or rent a monthly boat storage unit.

The BomBoard is very easy to assemble. The Side Sponsons slide into place on each side of the Power Pod via stainless steel slide rails. The Bow then slides into both sponsons and gets locked down to the Power Pod with two 1000-lbs. capacity latches. The unit is very strong, secure and is very seaworthy and recently won the Consumer Products Award for the 2015 NASA Tech Briefs, "Create the Future Design Contest" for its leading-edge, durable design.

In addition to a low price, easy assembly, and convenient transportation, the BomBoard also has a very small footprint when it comes to storage. This means that is can be transported inside most cars/trucks and stored in closets, garages and on most boats when not in use.

The company is seeking to sell its BomBoard's through an international network of brand ambassador resellers instead of the traditional channel of power-sports dealer locations, which typically mark up prices by thirty to fifty percent. Instead, the company will have its army of brand ambassadors show off the BomBoard at the waterways, provide demo rides and expose potential customers to the BomBoarding lifestyle and demonstrate how much more fun people can have on lake and beach outings with their friends with a BomBoard wave bomber.

Other prime boating resellers include marinas, resorts, vacation watercraft rentals or water skiing parks that would like to buy several watercraft to serve as rental units and/or demo units and then recommend that their rental customers buy one after enjoying a day of fun in the sun on a BomBoard watercraft. Resellers introduce potential customers to the deal, earn a commission when the customer chooses to buy and then BomBoard drop ships a unit right to the customer's home, condo or apartment.

BomBoard offers a program that allows anyone who refers twenty people, which end up buying a BomBoard watercraft, to earn enough sales commissions to own their own personal wave bomber with no money out-of-pocket.
