This 600HP EV Boat Makes A Head-Height, Barreled, Surf-Ready Wake

In recent years the surfing and wakeboarding world has seen a number of novel devices and systems to generate artificial waves, from indoor surfing pools to man-made lakes with physical current generators. And while it has yet to fully be brought to fruition, we’ve now been introduced to the latest imaginative take on artificial surfing wave production with what’s been christened the Gigawave 350 GW-X.

Spanning 35’, boasting a 10’ 6” beam and 4’ draft, and offering space for up to 28 passengers, the 350 GW-X features a deep-V main structure that is reportedly the largest wake surfing hull ever built. Designed to displace as much water as possible, the ship— which is equipped with a four-ton factory ballast — the hull’s unique design enables it to generate continuous head-height waves with a genuine barrel. Outfitted with a selection of retro-inspired styling cues, the boat also packs front and rear sun canopies, numerous board racks, and a yacht-style wooden deck. Powering the vessel is a pair of 300hp all-electric motors that offer ample torque while requiring less maintenance than gas-powered engines and is markedly better for the environment than traditional combustion mills.
