It’s Summer… Time To Surf Even Without Waves Thanks to Electric Drive (w/videos)
German company DK-Konstruktionen introduced on the market an electrified surfboard – the Waterwolf MXP 3.
We have already seen electric skateboards, so an electric surfboard seems to be just another step in electrification of everything that moves.
The cool thing about Waterwolf MXP 3 is that you can surf even without waves. Sadly, the drawback is that the 5 kW electric drive is pretty loud this time, like a lawnmower (see second and third video).
The range is rated at 20-30 minutes. The energy source is a lithium-ion battery pack, which stores 1.34 kWh or 1.54 kWh of energy depending on the version. Top speed is 30 km/h or 20 mph.
Sales of this device began in April, but to get the price there is need to directly contact the company.
