Torque Jet Boards are developing their Mongrel & Xtream surfboards since 2015 from Gold Coast in Australia. The have petrol powered jet boards as well, but let’s focus on their electric surfboards in the article.
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.
