When it comes to rescuing people on the beaches time is of the essence and if bodyguards are equipped with a fast means of riding the waves on their own then it would make a huge difference. A California designer Jason Woods has created the Kymera Rescue Board that has an electric motor powered by lithium ion battery pack that is capable of carrying around its rider on the waves for around an hour’s time.
