In the ever-evolving world of surfing, innovation has taken a thrilling leap with the introduction of the world's only electrically-powered surfboard, brought to us by Kahe Nautic. This groundbreaking creation, designed by a seasoned pro shaper at Rod's Surfboard with 35 years of shaping expertise, promises an unparalleled surfing experience for beginners, intermediates, and advanced riders alike.
The Board: Masterpiece of Design and Technology
The star of this aquatic spectacle is the 8' mini-malibu, a board meticulously crafted to perfection. With dimensions measuring 244 cm in length, 57 cm in width, and 7.8 cm in thickness, this board strikes the ideal balance between stability and maneuverability. Its unique shape, featuring a Mini squash cue style, Quad fin layout, and a concave double concave bottom, ensures an effortless and natural surfing experience in gentle waves.
What sets this electric surfboard apart is not just its design but the cutting-edge assistance system integrated seamlessly into its structure. Engineered and perfected in a laboratory situated along the Atlantic coast in Lacanau, this system is a true game-changer. Boasting three world patents, it stands as the only one of its kind globally.
Unleashing the Power: The Assistance System
Controlled via a user-friendly mobile app, the assistance system transforms surfing into a breeze. Preset configurations cater to the needs of beginners finding their balance, intermediates perfecting their skills, and advanced riders seeking an adrenaline rush. Once activated, the electric propulsion, powered by a 160 Wh Lithium battery with LG cells (the same as Tesla), propels the board for an impressive 2 to 2.5 hours of surfing bliss.
Silent, emission-free, and airplane-approved (cabin only), this electric surfboard offers an eco-friendly alternative without compromising on the thrill of the ride. The automatic cut-off feature ensures a seamless transition from electric power to natural surfing, allowing riders to ride the waves in their purest form.
Safety First: Automatic Cut-Offs and Maintenance Tips
Safety is a top priority with automatic cut-offs in place, halting propulsion after takeoff and in the event of a fall. This not only safeguards riders but also enhances the natural flow of the surfing experience.
Maintaining this innovative surfboard is surprisingly simple. The user-friendly electric-assist surfboard is easy to maintain. Regular rinsing with clear water after each session, particularly around the propeller and connector, keeps it in optimal condition. Storing the board and battery in a board-bag, away from heat and direct sunlight when not in use, ensures longevity.
In a world where the waves meet cutting-edge technology, this electrically-powered surfboard emerges as a beacon of innovation. Whether you're a beginner eager to catch your first wave or an advanced rider seeking a new thrill, this surfboard promises an unparalleled surfing experience that seamlessly blends technology with the natural beauty of the ocean.
