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.
