We had the chance last week to get a AWAKE electric surfboard demo at boot 2019 from Awake COO Daniel Aronsson.
Awake started shipping end of last year to some beta users and is now ramping up production for new orders.
You can already compare the AWAKE Rävik jetboard in our electric surfboard comparison with other jetboards and we published most of the specs in our AWAKE Rävik preview last summer, but now the board is available and we can share some updates.
See the full presentation of Daniel in the video here:
We could have a closer look to the remote control which is kind of unique.
It has a nice display and the throttle is controlled only by your thumb.
It felt good in our hand and the throttle is convenient.
Overall the board made a good impression with high quality components which you would expect for 18.900 EUR plus VAT.
With a top speed of 56 km/h it should be fast enough for most of us and according to Daniel you would be able to tow a wakeboarder.
A claim we so far only know from CURF jetboards.
With 179 cm length it is currently the shortest board in our comparison. The board is 61 cm wide and 16 cm thick.
For the AWAKE electric surfboard demo at boot the team installed a small pool to showcase the power of the board and that it is actually working and ready for shipment.
The total weight is 35 kg (including the battery which is 16 kg) and ships with a board bag with huge wheels in order to transport it to the beach.
Check out the AWAKE electric surfboard demo video above to see all details.
