Waterwolf from Oberammergau in Germany is developing the electric surfboard Waterwolf MPX. MPX stands for „motorized-propeller-drive-unit“ which means that this E-Surfer is using a propeller.
Most other electric surfboards are using a jet engine.
In our interview with the founder and CEO Markus Schilcher, he is explaining where does see the advantages of the propeller unit compared to jet engines. We also learned how everything started with his company and the idea to create an electric surfer.
We have tested the Waterwolf MPX 3 with riders of different weight and you will find our full review below. We really enjoyed riding this board.
Markus has opened several test centres in Germany and Italy where you can ride his boards before you buy. More centres are planned for 2018 as you can read in our article below.
Markus is planning to improve the performance of his current boards in 2018 and is also planning to release new products. We are very much looking forward to write about it here.
We had already a few opportunities to meet Waterwolf e-surfboard founder Markus Schilcher. He is visiting us a few times a year to show us his latest prototypes.
Reason enough for an interview with him as he is the brain behind one of the first electric surfboards which is available for sale in higher quantities. His product is in the market since 3 years and has now proven to be ready for the market.
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.
