Non-OW Related: Anyone else following this product?



  • This is another electric board i have been following. Going to buy one once they have been in production for a while. The carver board looks awesome. The main downfall i see right now (based on current specs) is the battery life and recharging. ~20 minutes ride time.. and i do not believe they have a rapid charger. But the batteries are supposed to be easy to swap out.. so i guess i could take a few spares with me when going out.

    Regardless.. these things look like they will be a blast!

    Just curious if anyone else has been following this or has any experience with powered surf/wake boards.



  • i am looking for something like that for quite a while for those days, the wind isn´t enough for kitesurfing.

    there are some simmilar projects running at the moment, i think this one looks great too:

  • @cr4p that does look like another good one, thanks for the link. wonder what they are going for, i did not see a price listed on the site. i wish they had a forum, onean does not have one either. would love to see some honest feedback from people that have bought either of these. (onean is only doing pre-orders though).



  • considering the other projects i have seen so far, they seem to be expensive, eg:
    http://waterwolf.de starting from 8000€
    http://lampuga.de/ starting from 10000€

    as far as i read, the raddin is something like 15000€

    but i think this toys are quite heavy because they need a huge battery to deliver that much power.
    concerning weight and runtime their fuel-powered brothers are currently much better (~14kg, max 2l/hour): www.jet-surf.com



  • @cr4p that is pretty expensive. the onean carver will be around 3400 euro i believe.



  • interesting!



  • There was a discussion about this some time ago:
    http://community.rideonewheel.com/topic/197/thoughts-on-powered-surfboard/2

    Just if you hadn't seen it. :)



  • @callenj357 @cr4p These things are looking awesome...The carver board at 12kg is not bad.I would have thought they weighed much more than that. I have a feeling I will pick one up after more reviews/info is out there.



  • @germx thanks man. honestly did not see that thread. should have did a search before starting another thread on it.:flushed:



  • @SC720 same for me as well. will definitely pick one up if they live up to the current details.

    allthough i agree, please do not forget that the weight of the carver board is **without **battery (the battery has 10kg, you can see that on the pre-order page)



  • @callenj357 Don't worry, it's very old and dead. I just remembered it and thought that maybe it holds something of interest.



  • @cr4p Thanks, I didn't notice that about the weight. The battery does makes it significantly heavier.



  • Not quite as fast and cool as the ones you guys mentioned in this thread :smile:

    • but as far as SUPs go - I have these on order from kickstarter - delivery is any day now: http://sipaboards.com


  • @Bart very cool. i do some SUP fishing. have a few boards including an inflatable. The fisherman sipa board looks interesting. thanks for the link bart.



  • I've been following Onean/Aquila for about a year and even inquired about ordering a Carver. They do not accept credit cards, but instead require a bank wire transfer. I wasn't comfortable wiring that kind of money to an overseas startup who has yet to put boards into customer hands. I'm still keeping my eye on them though. I really want a Blade, but it looks like they are waiting to release that model.



  • @Bart dang it- now I'm going to spend some more $$.. that SUP looks cool! We take ours out to Bodega Bay to go crabbing and the could definitely use the assistance when the wind kicks in.



  • @tomtnt @callenj357

    I just received mine! I ordered 2 on Kickstarter incl LEDs.

    Here is a video from Kickstarter days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xE-ohfUhiDk

    and one showing the LEDs for night SUPping: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-COXt0KXf0

    Note that the video still shows a prototype engine and board; the final product is a bit sleeker still (they just won a red dot design award too). They reached various stretch goals so it now also comes with a handy backpack that holds everything, and an app to further track and control the board. I ordered a spare battery for each board so should be able to get up to 4-6 hours of assisted paddling.

    But as it is now December we're going into winter here in the Netherlands, so I won't be trying it out on the water till April I think... :-(

    Here are some more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfvdyJNaubZaxJDQjN25zGA
    and a review: http://www.isupworld.com/sipaboard/

    alright enough marketing - I promise I don't work for them - just an excited backer! :-)

    Hope useful!



  • @Bart okay i am sold.. going to pre-order the fisherman asap.

    Did not know you were a Nederlander Bart. Mijn moeder komt uit Utrecht. Ik spreek een beetje nederlands.

    I have been trying to practice my dutch more. I am considering taking some lessons via Skype as well. Hoping to visit again next year.



  • @callenj357 cool - enjoy! the pre-order price looks like a good discount on the fisherman. For comparison - the normal one ('Cruiser') that I ordered on Kickstarter is now selling for $1899 (official list price $2190); I paid $1,265 on Kickstarter, so I would expect that their pre-order discount is pretty real, so getting in early may be worth it.

    Most of my family from my dad's side is from the Utrecht area! I live in The Hague though - by the beach :smile:
    I see you are from Melbourne - my wife is from Melbourne too - except she's from the one in Oz :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    Did once almost book a surprisingly cheap flight from Holland to what turned out to be the wrong Melbourne... doh!
