More and more people try to build their own DIY electric Foil surfboard. Nikolai, Hans Emil and Jonas from Norway are documenting their findings and are sharing them with the community.
We reached out to ONEAN CEO Inigo Sobradillo to learn more about his electric boards and how everything started. Inigo is developing the Onean Carver and Onean Manta electric surfboards in Spain.

What is electric wave surfing? Other than an electric surfboard, which is supposed to accelerate you to a speed that you can surf without waves, an electric wave surfboard is designed to catch the right wave for a normal surf experience.
It can be quite hard to paddle fast enough to catch the wave at the right spot. Imagine you have a motor in your board which can bring you exactly to the point where you need to stand up in order to ride the wave without any further help of a motor.
In the Estern part of Berlin we visited Waterrebels CEO Stefan Klug in his office to learn more about the Surfrebel electric surfboard.
We had the opportunity to see his latest prototype and ask him 10 questions about his company and vision.
In our electric surfboard Waterwolf review we will have a closer look at the Waterwolf MPX-3 which is developed in Germany. We had the 2016 130 litre model in house for an unboxing video and of course test rides.
Most electric surfboards have a jet engine, but Waterwolf and the eFoil come with a propeller. Please compare the different boards at our Electric Surfboard Comparison 2017.
Today we will have a preview at the Waterrebels electric surfboard which is still in prototype phase at this time. The Surfrebel will be commercially available in 2018.
The Surfrebel is developed in the eastern part of Berlin, right next to the spree river.
