Title: Braking system for small jet propulsion surfboard

Abstract: A braking system for a small jet propulsion surfboard can be manufactured at reduced costs. The braking system includes left and right sponsons retractably attached to a surfboard body. Left and right locking units fix the sponsons to the surfboard body. An unlocking unit unlocks the lock units in order to free the sponsons from the surfboard body. A traction rope ensures that the freed sponsons remain connected to the surfboard body. The freed sponsons are pulled by the traction rope to thereby apply braking force to the jet propulsion surfboard. In an alternative embodiment, a system with a water-reversing cup can replace the sponsons.
