Surfboards are great and all, but they are cumbersome to transport from beach to beach. Well, the Lampuga AIR is an inflatable surfboard with handlebars and a 15HP electric jet-ski style motor which can propel you up to 30MPH. Since it is inflatable, it can squish down and travel with you easily.
However, you might want to ask yourself if you even need a surfboard with a motor. I thought the whole idea was to use the power of the wave. I guess it makes things more hardcore to get some extra speed. Plus, you can ride it on flat, quiet waters too, so there is that bonus. This thing will cruise up to 40 minutes on a full charge.
The one other downside? The Lampuga Air will cost you around $10,000 more than the old school version. And for those looking for something a bit more sturdy, there’s always the aluminum and carbon fiber Lampuga Boost, which is “only” about $14,000.
