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 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.
An electric SUP board also known as E-SUP does not fit into our main category of electric surfboards, which you can compare in our 2017 electric surfboard comparison.
They are basically to slow and you cannot glide like on a surfboard or snowboard.
That’s said, we thought it would be interesting to cover them at least in an article as there are several brands out they become more.
The phrase „electric surfboard for sale“ is one of the most common search terms on search engines if it come to electric surfboards.
Reason enough for us to show you where you can buy electric surfboards and (from a European perspective) what you need to know if you import from outside the EU.
If possible we recommend Europeans to order locally in the EU in order to save time, taxes and fees and to have local support.
The Lampuga electric surfboard company from Hamburg in Germany announced on April 7th 2017 its bankruptcy. Since than not much news were to hear other than they are looking for a new investor.
If you are looking for an electric surfboard for sale and are willing to make such an investment of 10,000 USD or more you should first go for a electric surfboard test & rent session if possible.
At least in Germany and Italy this is now possible with the Waterwolf test centers. Waterwolf is planning to expand the test centres to other regions as well.
If you join our Facebook group at: “Electric Surfbord Users” ,you can share great spots, where such a test center would make sense.
Last weekend we had the chance to take out the Onean Carver for an electric surfboard test on a lake close to Berlin.
Rider Jens L. had to wait 1.5 years until he got the electric surfboard for his 6,000 USD (including extras) investment, but we have seen this with early electric skateboards as well.
