The Kyosho RC Surfer 4 Electric Surfboard with KT-231P 2.4GHz Transmitter is the fourth release of the RC Surfer, built with the same innovative form and function of the previous models, with a few improvements to help it master the waters. A reinforced stainless shafted rudder and improved surfer figure add extra reliability when maneuvering through choppy waters and catching waves. While the natural habitat of the RC Surfer is the sea, its dynamic response also functions well on the flat waters of lakes, rivers and even pools. It's built of anti corrosive materials, which means you can focus on surfing the RC Surfer in any type of water without worrying about potential damage.  

This surfer was designed to please and be appreciated by real wave riders, not just RC fans. Buoyant material inside the surfboard structure and hollow surfer figure with flotation function keeps the board in an upright position and allows it ride waves easily. The kit combines this easy flotation with the auto-recovery mechanism to make the RC Surfer practically unsinkable. Get in on the action with the RC Surfer 4, whether it's in the deep blue sea or just your backyard pool.

Kyosho RC Surfer 4 Electric Surfboard (Black)
I will come back and amend this rating once the dust settles. As of now, I just got my Surfer 4 in the water for the 1st time this past weekend. After 5 minutes the Surfer started becoming hard to control. I quickly got it back to shore to find water inside the electronics compartment. Quickly emptied the water to find water in the HULL. The only way to get it out was through the propeller shaft. Which I assume is the only way it got IN. I am working with AMAIN hobbies, and they directed me to KyoshoAmerica. So far both Customer Service teams seem helpful. The process just started so I will report back on the results.

Very disappointing as I just spent nearly $300 on a toy I cannot use.

Well.. I am not exactly happy right now. Took my son out with the Surfer 4. Surf was around 8". About half way through the first battery, the rudder servo came unattached from the chassis of the hull, rendering unable to turn. My rc almost hit a young boy who was in the water watching with enthusiasm, before crashing into the sandbar because the steering was gone...not cool. My son was very embarrassed and we left the beach after an apology to the child and parents. The stock rudder actuator arm is very thin and flexible, making it hard to maintain trim in anything resembling a wave. Disappointed in kyosho, prior models were better.. also the servo is so close to hull that by placing the servo on the outer side it catches the cassis.
None of this is amain hobbies fault however! They have been a great company, had swift delivery of all parts ordered, and was easy site to navigate

Arrived quickly which was good. Wasn't too hard to assemble, also good. Ran great for the first 60 seconds in the water then quit, not good at all. Spent around $300 for a total let down. I think I would have more fun losing that money at a roulette wheel. Turns out the propeller shaft is stuck inside the brass tube that surrounds it. Currently having to make my own repairs on a brand new rc. Called AMain and they were like "I dunno". Called Kyosho USA and they knew what the problem was immediately which leads me to believe this wasn't the first time they've seen this. I will get this working again, just didn't expect to have to be doing this so soon

Kyosho RC Surfer 4 Electric Surfboard (Black)
This is a super fun toy, but ill be honest, I broke in about 5 minutes. I took it home and used epoxy to hold some stuff in place. It worked OK for 10 minute's the next time I took it out, but the tubes for the water tube that cool the motor started leaking and caused some issues causing the surfer to get stranded 20 yards out in the ocean. I repaired the tubes, but now think its best to replace the motor and the battery with a more powerful set up that doesn't take 8 hours to charge. I really love this toy and its a blast to surf it, but you can really only drive it for maybe 10 minutes on a full charge that takes 8 hours.

Kyosho RC Surfer 4 Electric Surfboard (Black)
This new Kyosho 4 RC Surfer is really nice looking. Top quality construction and well designed interior housing, very clean and easy to access. Beaches are closed here in Hawaii but I can wait for them tho open again so I can try this surfer out.
The most difficult part I found was fixing the surfer to the board. Tucking the O rings into his hollow feet and grabbing both ends, one with the provided hex wrench and the special hook tool also I included was tricky. The parts for his feet on the deck where you hook the O rings to, I found you have to unscrew them slightly from the bottom so the O ring will slip under the notch, aonce both loops are hooked on, just retighten the phillips screw under the deck and the O rings will be locked in.
Other than that, I can’t wait to hit the Hawaiian waves ?????????
