Waterproof or Water resistant?

The controller and battery box are sealed with a closed-cell foam gasket which is not glued, and they also have vents. The vents are made of gore-tex like material that will repel water that is splashed onto it. However, the vents can't withstand water under pressure, which would happen if it is submerged. The gasket also can leak if enough pressure is applied. The vents are protected from direct water impact by the bumpers, so you should be absolutely fine spraying your board from all angles, riding through puddles, etc., but just don't play chicken with waves which could wash over your board.
