Electric Surfboard & eSurfboard news

An electric surfboard aka eSurfboard is powered by an electric motor and a jet engine. These Jetboards can achieve speeds up to 60 km/h and are much more silent compared to petrol powered Jetboards.

The electric surfboard market is rapidly growing with new players launching their eSurfboards every quarter. Reason enough for us to launch an electric surfboard blog to provide an overview about the different players. While petrol powered surfboards are out since more than a decade, the new electric Jetboards are still new and innovations are introduced every year. Next to the normal electric surfboards which are very similar to a standard surfboard we see a lot of hype around Electric Hydrofoils which let you fly above the water. You will find these in our Electric Hydrofoil section. Another section is about Electric Sup surfboards. You can get the latest electric surfboards in our Jetboard Shop.

More about the electric surfboard:

Some electric surfboards are using propellers and others a jet engine. In our “compare boards” section you can see the differences between the electric surfboards available. Sometimes these boards are not for sale yet, so we rely on the information we get from the manufacturer website and from our forum. But we usually we get access to test boards before they are on sale and will write full reviews in such cases.

The first electric surfboards in the market were Onean from Spain, Lampuga from Germany and Waterwolf from Germany which launched 2016/2017. Lampuga went bankrupt in 2017, but opened again in 2018 with a new owner. The new Lampuga Air is shipping since August 2020. Like most of the electric surfboards it is using a jet. Onean started with an electric SUP called Manta and an jetboard called Carver. The Onean Carver was probably the most sold electric surfboard until early 2019, but struggled a little bit with power for rider above 80 kg. As a consequence Onean launched the Carver X in summer 2018 with 2 batteries and 2 jet engines, which can handle heavier riders.
