Awake Boards is a Swedish manufacturer of electric surfboards. Awake founder and wakeboarder Philip Werner has been experimenting with electrically powered surfboards since 2012.
Having already co-founded the company Radinn, he launched Awake Boards in 2017. His goal was jetboards of the highest quality with outstanding riding characteristics.
Since 2022, the company has been manufacturing the Vinga eFoils in addition to the Rävik jetboards. E-SURFER has been meeting the team from Sweden every year since 2018 for interviews and product demonstrations, as you can read in our Awake & E-SURFER blog article.
The Awake Rävik 3 costs about 16,000 EUR incl. 19% VAT. If you take the large battery and the optional board bag you are at 19,000 EUR.
Interestingly, the founder of Radinn (Philip Werner) left Radinn to subsequently found Awake Boards. Since Philip is very talented, Radinn boards can be ridden very well. However, he left the company because Radinn investors allegedly wanted to cut production costs. In fact, you can see and compare the two brands right next to each other in our store. The quality of the Awake boards is a lot better.
The Awake Jetboards reach speeds of up to 55 km/h. The Vinga eFoil up to 50 km/h.
