I’m a dedicated high wind windsurfer. But on low wind days I got into playing with electric SUPs. Over the years it turned into a business.
I build custom eSUPs that do about 5 mph and maneuver really well. They are not foils but provide plenty of enjoyment for those non foiling/planing days. The typical setup is:
11’ 6” x 30” SUP board
330 watt hour lithium battery
300 watt continuous motor power
9.5 lb for the electric drive + 28 lb for board
Easy to carry and rig at the beach
$2000 for full setup with board
I give free on the water demos and for my NW Wind friends I’d offer an awesome free tour from Bowman Bay at Deception Pass. Give me a call and we’ll put it on the calendar.
