No Swell? No Problem – The Boost Electric Surfboard by Lampuga

For surfers, growing up on the New South Wales coast is a blessing; you’re never more than a short drive away from a decent wave all year round. Some aren’t so lucky – perhaps the closest thing you have to something rideable is the wind chop on your local public swimming pool.

For the swell-impoverished (but financially-loaded) surfer, Hamburg-based Lampuga has the answer: The Boost electric surfboard. With its sleek carbon-fibre body and 15 horse power jet propelled engine, the Lampuga Boost will have you carving up, with or without a nearby break.

The board works like a battery powered Jet-Ski, using a rear-facing water jet for propulsion. Powered by a 52-volt lithium-ion battery, the Boost can achieve speeds of up to 55 km/h for up to 40 minutes, making it one of the fastest e-surfboards on the market. A hardwired twist throttle controls speed and turning, and a leg leash connects to the engine’s kill switch in case the rider falls off.
