We ride a 29-mph electric surfboard, no waves required | Translogic 201
Bucko rides an incredible electric surfboard in Florida.
In addition to being all-electric, the Wakejet is made primarily out of carbon fiber, giving it a total somewhere around 55 pounds.
This awesome electric-powered surfboard can reach up to 29 mph and has a range of approximately 15 miles. The 48-volt NMC battery is replaceable and takes two hours to charge. Ometto even makes a point to talk safety, since the prospect of an electric vehicle in the water seems shocking to some. "It's not really like that," he says. "Once the battery's not connected, it shuts off... Even if water does come in contact with the battery, it won't shock."
However, such a cool toy comes at a steep price. The Radinn Wakejet starts at $17,000, with replacement batteries running an extra $6,000.
