The Blea Electric Surfboard doesn’t have to rely on Mother Nature to provide the perfect conditions and waves to enjoy the exhilaration and freedom of surfing. In fact, you don’t even need waves—you can surf on any body of water with the Blea Electric Surfboard.
The Blea surfboard is made from a reinforced polymer and keeps the same basic shape of a surfboard with the exception of the back end being flat and thicker so as to allow for the propulsion unit. In simple terms, the Blea surfboard looks like a water rocket that has been flattened so that you can stand on it. It weighs about 30 kilograms with the battery. The Shark Performance board has a max eight horsepower that can reach about 20 miles per hour, with a 40-70 minute battery life. The Shark Sport board has 13 horsepower, propelling it to a top speed of 30 miles per hour and a similar battery life. Both batteries recharge in about 1.5 to 2 hours.
Ironically, though surfing is a sport built around the idea of freedom, it’s limited in where and when you can participate in it. With the Blea Electric Surfboard, more people in more locations and in more conditions will be able to experience what wave surfers know—the freedom of surfing is unique and liberating.
