Jetpilot was born in 1986 when it made a name for itself by creating the most technically advanced wetsuits, vests and apparel for the sport of personal watercraft racing. The inspiration came from 4 Californians with a strong passion for Moto X and Watercraft. As Scott, Jeff, Eric and Phil got heavily into Watercraft they saw that no one was focusing on Rider apparel in this growing sport. Their MX background gave them the vision and design concepts that changed the industry to what we are today. The Jetpilot brand name was chosen from the guys from their experience of racing Moto X at a Pro level in America and Europe. They were called Moto pilots if you rode Moto X bikes in Europe. They didn’t want to call the brand Jet Ski Pilot racing apparel as Jet Ski was a Kawasaki trademark name for their watercraft products, so the brand Jetpilot was the title of the new direction in watersports gear.
