Addressing Safety Concerns

Potential investors frequently ask about the safety of the BomBoard and how we address liability concerns. As shown below, personal watercrafts make for a safe sport. The BomBoard should be safer than traditional personal watercrafts and we will strongly support efforts to make it even safer. We will obviously carry appropriate liability insurance.
