You can test the boards yourself if you visit our Shop in Berlin.

Rather than offering all electric surfboards and skateboards we choose only a handful in order to offer better qualified support for our customers. The way we chose the boards is based on availability, reliability and support from the manufacturer. Many boards are advertised, but only a few have proven to be good enough for us. For electric surfboards we usually offer a leisure board, a race board and an electric hydrofoil. For electric skateboards our choice is the Onewheel.
We are your local support in the region and our E-Surfer Shop Team is able to help with technical questions by email, phone or WhatsApp. We have also spare parts available and will be able to replace any component, if this should be necessary. Before you buy a board you have the opportunity to test it. Make your appointment at the test center. Our staff will explain the products in detail and join you on the water connected via a bbTalkin radio. Or on different terrains for the Onewheel. We have products on stock in our warehouse in Berlin.
Electric surfboard buying guide introduction
It is important to share one thing upfront before we all waste time. Please don’t request an electric hydrofoil or powerful jetboard for below 5,000 EUR. Below 5,000 EUR you will only get an electric SUP or an jetboard for very light riders below 60 kg. Even under 10,000 EUR it will be hard to serve riders above 80 kg. There are few models such like the Onean Carver X who can hit the mark of below 10k EUR for heavy riders, but must most boards are more expensive. The reason is easy to explain. Heavier riders need more power and more power needs not only more battery cells, but also a much better heat management.
There are more and more cheap boards announced from China and you can find all of them in our electric surfboard comparison. However, without a local distributor we cannot recommend such boards. If something happens with your board, it will be hard to get support from Asia. Our team made a lot of frustrating experiencein the past with cheap petrol powered boards from China. Cheap prices come usually also with cheap battery cells and a weak battery management (BMS) which can become dangerous as you can read in our battery safety article.
We don’t want to be negative, but we want to be realistic. This is a new and expensive sport. Compare it with a jet-ski (aka personal watercraft), but don’t think it is just a surfboard with a motor which sells for 4,000 EUR. Over time the prices shall go down, but for now be realistic about the necessary investment. Thats said, it is worthwhile if you buy a high quality electric surfboard. 2017, when we started e-boarder.com which was an online blog about electric skateboards, we thought we would never spend 15,000 EUR for such a toy. But once we tried it, we got addicted.
Our first e-surfboard was a Waterwolf. It was a lot of fun. Currently we own Lift Foils eFoil and the Lampuga Air. We can highly recommend these boards, but there are of course much more choices. We did ride most of the electric surfboards and hydrofoils ourselves and feel confident that we will find the right board for you.
What kind of e-surfboard is right for you?
Okay, let’s start with the basics. As a first step you may want to check out our comparisons which will give you a good overview about the different boards which are available and in order to get an initial feeling about the different choices..
As you can see we divide in 4 categories for our electric surfboard buying guide.
An electric SUP is a standup paddle surfboard with motor. You can get complete electric SUP surfboards or extension kits which replace your fin of an existing SUP board. E-SUPs are not very fast. They are targeted for families or people who want to enjoy the nature at a low speed. You get a good E-SUP below 5,000 EUR.
Some extension kits can be also used for other use cases such like scuba-diving or to motorise a kayak. The electric SUP are not a good choice for adrenalin junkies as they are just not powerful enough with speeds less than 10 km/h. Two well know brands are Sipaboards and ScubaJet.
Electric surfboards do mainly use a jet engine such like the Onean jetboards, but there are exceptions like the Waterwolf which is using a propeller. One of the key questions for finding the right board here is your weight. More weight needs more power which means more expensive.
Other important questions are where you want to ride and of course what your experience level is. Some people are looking for a relaxed surf and others like racing. The very powerful (and expensive) boards do even allow to tow a wakeboarder or hydrofoil.
Electric hydrofoils such like Lift Foils, Fliteboard and others are getting very popular recently. Once they are flying they need much less power and are therefore easier / cheaper to build. But again for a high quality e-foil with good electronics you get easily above the 10,000 EUR mark.
E-Foils are usually more difficult to ride compared to a jetboard, but you will figure it out. Some people can fly after 15 minutes and others need 2-3 hours to feel safe. Electric Foils are very silent, don’t create any waves and can start flying below 20 km/h if you use a larger wing. The feeling is amazing.
Petrol powered Jetboards
Petrol powered jetboards are out since many years and companies such like Jetsurf have a lot of experience with mass production. They are noisier and you have to deal with petrol, but they are also reliable, still cheaper at high performance and you can bring them on an airplane.
The latter one (travelling by plane) is the biggest advantage compared to all the electric models. Electric surfboard batteries cannot be taken on a place. If you want to travel with an e-surfboard you need to send your batterie upfront to the hotel using a special freight forwarder.
