Waterwolf MPX-3 Electric Surfboard

Waiting for a killer wave in Kansas is like waiting for Ke$ha to be considered classic—it’s not happening. So for the wannabe surfer who lives nowhere near any surf, the Waterwolf MPX-3 electric surfboard could be a revelation. Drop this puppy in the lake or a river and you’ll be whisking along the water at speeds up to 21 mph. The rear-mounted propeller system is powered by a 5 kW, water-cooled motor. A  20 Ah lithium-ion battery is stored away in a watertight case, giving you about 25 minutes of fun time, or about 5 miles of distance.

So now you’re wondering how you control the thing, right? A Bluetooth handheld throttle adjusts the MPX-3’s output and speed, and the board has a magnetic emergency kill switch that’s activated when the wrist leash is pulled. About to crash into Ke$ha on her waverunner? Jump off and the tug of the strap pulls the magnetic connector out, cutting power immediately. Siiigh. If only Ke$ha would spend more time in Kansas lakes. The MPX-3 is set to release on April 12th, 2014, and is currently available for pre-order. Check out the video below. [Purchase]
