Electric Surfboard Comparison

Our Electric Surfboard comparison should give you a good overview about the different surfboards which are available on the market. As the number of motorised surfboards is increasing quarter by quarter, we divide into 4 different categories. Electric surfboards are traditional surfboards with an electric powered motor which are either accelerated by a jet engine or a propeller and make a minimum speed of 20 km/h. These boards shown in the table below.

Other categories would Electric SUP surfboards which are slower, Electric Hydrofoils which fly above the water with a wing or petrol powered boards.

The first table will you you e-surfboards which are either available today or are announced to be available in the near future. All prices here in this comparison are standard manufacturer prices excluding VAT and excluding shipping, so please keep this in mind when you are budgeting or request  help in  our buying guide. VAT and shipping easily add a few thousand EUR. We get too often requests for powerful boards below 5,000 EUR, which is just not possible. We try to keep this table as updated as possible, but if you think you noticed a wrong price, please contact us.

In the column “Tested” you can see which boards we tested ourselves and can confirm the data. All other data is from the manufacturers as explained below the tables.

In the second table we want to keep track of older electric surfboards which are either not available anymore or are re-branded. This is in order to make this page complete and offer the largest electric surfboard comparison you can find on the web. This industry is still young, but went already through quite a few changes.

As you can see you can easily compare by price, availability, speed, length, range, weight and propulsion. However, I want to highlight that all data in these tables are from the manufacturers and probably measured under ideal conditions. Light rider, no wind, no waves, etc. In our articles you will see more and more reviews and we are currently planning to setup a lab were we can actually test all boards on our own in the same conditions. We have already reviews for several boards from Onean, Waterwolf, Torque, Lampuga and others.

Especially the speed and range can vary a lot based on the riders weight and style. Both depends highly on the battery and batteries are expensive. This is why most of the models below 10,000 EUR are probably more for lighter riders below 80 kg. Another important aspect is the quality of the batteries. The batteries make up for about 30-40% of the price and cheap cells from China and and a weak battery management system (BMS) may safe thousands of EUR, but also increase the risk of damage and fire. Please have a look at our battery safety instructions to see why you should not underestimate the need of high quality components.

Of course 15,000 EUR or more are an expensive investment, but safety should come first. We see more and more cheap Asian models  entering the market which undercut the prices of high quality brands by 50%. Yes, this sounds attractive and sometimes might be the only chance to budget for an electric surfboard, but I recommend that you have at least a local distributor for support and have tested the boards at least once before you buy. Otherwise you might get very disappointed.

The high quality brands in our electric surfboard comparison which were fully reviewed by us our the Allstar Team are a pretty safe choice. And if you ask for help through our buying guide please understand that we will only recommend we have tested on our own. At the same time we want to list here all electric surfboards we hear of, so that you can make your own decision. Again, this trend is very new and the technology ist still evolving. Prices are high and will keep high until the volumes are increasing and the technology is getting better.

electric surfboard comparison – 2 Waterwolf surfboards

Don’t think about these boards just as surfboards. If you think it is 2,000 EUR for a surfboard plus 2,000 EUR for the engine and the electronics you will get disappointed. This is a different sport and new category which can be compared with a Jetski aka Personal Watercraft which are usually between 10,000 and 25,000 EUR. Same here.

We are following this market now since over 2 years (May 2019) and we have seen so many announced models which either never made it to market or came with 1 or 2 years delay. It is not as easy as some may think. Even companies which are funded with millions of EUR did fail or came delayed. It needs time and it needs quality which is expensive. I understand this price range might be a “no go” for some of you and is frustrating. At the same time it is the reality. The only chance to make it cheaper for a broader market is time. Time to improve the (battery) technology, time to increase the volume and time to make this sport for a mass market.

At the same time it is worthwhile. I started and electric skateboard blog 3 years ago which I dripped of E-Surfer. The reason I started with the skateboards was that I thought I would never pay 15,000 EUR for an e-surfboard. But once I tried it I got addicted. I started with an Waterwolf and now I own a Lift Foils eFoil and a Lampuga Air. I love it and yes, it is worthwhile the money. But, of course, it is a lot. I used to own a Jetski, so I am used to this price range, I love the new boards much more.

Keep on riding!
