How we started?
Raised in Vancouver, BC, Canada, the inventor of Surfwheel was inspired by the four seasons of the country, as well as its surfing, skiing, and skateboarding culture. He then attempted to build an electric vehicle with the most sensational move that he has always wanted and envisioned as a child.
Years later, specifically in 2013, the electric mobility field was still boring. The Surfwheel team then imagined something great that we could and we wanted to bring into the market.
We started developing the first Surfwheel, the R1, in 2014 and launched it in 2016. Surfwheel is a one-wheel, motorized skateboard that gives you a zero-gravity feeling while ‘surfing’ on land. The unique tire tread (US10058765B2), with its fine tuned shape and curve of the wheel, gives you the feeling of drifting and a true ‘surfing on land’ experience.
Why Surfwheel? What next?
It is the pursuit of engineering and art.
We did not settle after launching the Surfwheel R1. We spent the next 2 years preparing for the launch of Surfwheel SU and TR , bringing a more modern, lighter, and safer ride. We also enhanced the feeling of ‘surfing’ on land. The Surfwheel SU and TR are each equipped with safety wheels (US10065103B2), providing a smooth and easy ride. Surfwheel’s SU and TR weight range from 13 lbs. (6.5kg) to 18 lbs. (8.8kg) making Surfwheel one of the lightest and most portable electric mobility devices in the market. Surfwheel SU and TR are each equipped with powerful high efficient LED lights providing a safer, fun and easy way to be visible at night.
