Lampuga

THE ULTIMATE WATER TOY
Designed and produced in Germany, the Lampuga Air is a user-friendly electric surfboard that offers fun and exciting experiences on water with the touch of a button

A jetboard is an electrically powered surfboard, where the rider controls the speed using a hand-held remote control and uses weight transfer to manoeuvre the board. With an exceptional growth over the past years, jetboards have gained popularity and momentum worldwide, and are often referred to as ‘the next big thing in water sports’. The Lampuga Air from the German manufacturer Lampuga is an electric surfboard that offers great water fun and is enjoyable for all riders, regardless of experience level.

This innovative board makes the surfing experience more instant and accessible. There is no need to paddle and control is easier, shortening the lengthy learning process and allowing the user to experience the thrills on the water. So it’s little wonder that this watersport has quickly become popular, and that jetboards are increasingly a must have yacht accessory.

HIGHTECH MADE IN GERMANY
The inflatable Lampuga Air delivers continuous power, speed and stability on the water. Designed and produced in Germany, the board is built to the highest safety standards, employing modern electric technology and is completely emission free.

The board’s lithium-ion battery allows for a riding time of up to 45 minutes and when exhausted, its handy plug-and-play battery system allows for an effortless re-charge or a quick battery change. Powered by an electrical motor, the board is accelerated forward by a jet drive to a thrilling top speed of 50km/h.

The Lampuga Air has a unique and patented design, which makes it one of the most flexible and practical electric surfboards on the market. The board consists of two parts: its inflatable hull and the technical Powerbox, which allows for easy transportation and storage. Once disassembled and deflated, the Lampuga Air requires minimal storage space and will fit into the trunk of the average car or into a boat or a yacht with limited space. The board is assembled and water-ready within a few minutes and is equally quickly disassembled. Five minutes after arriving at the chosen jetboarding destination, riders have inflated the jetboard’s hull, attached it to the drive unit and are ready to go!

PURE WATER FUN
The Lampuga Air offers fun and exciting experiences on water with the touch of a button. It can be used in a seated, lying and standing position and is suitable for all riders. As opposed to other boards, the air inside the board’s inflatable hull allows the Lampuga Air to float when the rider’s weight is added to the board. This enables the rider to stand on the board before accelerating and offers a reassuring cruising experience where the rider always has a safe surface to rely on.

In short, a Lampuga jetboard offers you all the tranquil possibilities of stand-up paddle boarding and the speed and excitement of a surfboard, all rolled into one environmentally friendly toy. They are easy to use no matter the level of experience of the user or their confidence on the water and are an invaluable part of any on-board toy cabinet. Who could resist?

E-Boards are taking the watersports world by storm. ONBOARD talks to Wayne Brooks about what to look for when buying a new board

Wayne Brooks, founder of Jet Board Limited, former surfer and water lover, and known in the industry for his seemingly endless collection of jetboards, bought his first board in 2008. It was one of the very first invented: big, heavy and clumsy. He has come a long way since then, always with a smile after a session on one of his many boards.

But that hasn’t always been the case. Often, Wayne would receive a new board only to find out the promised specs are not reality, or that the board isn’t actually saltwater proof, or to discover it is malfunctioning after one ride. Many a time he has come out of the water feeling great only to discover the board will not charge, or the battery is unsafe.

Today, having mastered the art of choosing jetboards and matching people with their perfect board, he advises that before buying a board you ask yourself what you want out of your board. Most electric boards average at a 25-minute ride time, continuous full throttle with an 85kg rider on top. This is a good industry standard, and something you should be expecting, but remember that when you mix up the speeds the ride time increases.

You also need to know where you are going to store your board. It is not recommended to leave it outside on the deck where salty winds and water can get to it. It’s also not recommended to store your battery fully charged, so consider a board that charges quickly.

It is a common myth that buying directly from the manufacturer is beneficial, but this is far from the truth. While the price remains equal, factories are specialised in manufacturing, while dealers focus on customer service and after-care. Look for the latter; these boards can break, and you will be thankful to have the back-up service.
Wayne also recommends caution with online shops: “Would you buy a boat from someone who has never been on one? Same goes for jetboards.” Look for dealers who offer a try-before-you-buy deal with multiple brands, and can give you honest and unbiased advice. Remember that when top speed and max riding time is mentioned online, it is usually measured without a rider, so when you add an 85kg weight on top these specs decrease.

Remember warranty! Dealers who also have service centres will be able to best help you should something go wrong with the board in the middle of summer. You do not want to be missing out on a whole season because the online shop you bought from doesn’t stock an impeller, or because the factory is at such over-capacity it cannot handle the warranty cases. Wayne has concluded after all these years that the best boards are modular ones. Rather than shipping boards back and forth, you can simply change the part yourself in a matter of minutes. Look for modular or be sure that you’re buying from a brand with incredible warranty capacities.

The industry is still incredibly new, some even say at an early adopters stage, so as for the future we are still waiting to see the big players like Yamaha, or Seadoo enter the market, before this can happen though we still need to see the industry grow massively. This also takes us to consolidation, right now it’s an industry where players enter and drop out at fast rates. Battery capacity and safety is still a big issue. Right now everyone is using li-ion, but as soon as a battery with a lighter ion, and larger capacity that is affordable comes out, we should see some great improvements in the jetboard industry in terms of weight, ride time and performance.
