Company Background

How were the WaveShark Boards created?

The company finds its origin in 2021 and was founded by Wally Zheng, who previously worked in the company PowerVision. The latter has expanded the market of drones with interesting products that delivered innovative results, especially in terms of design. Underwater drones were also designed, which may have contributed important research findings regarding radio transmission and electronics to the development of water sports equipment.

Like the drones, WaveShark products have won design awards such as the Red Dot Award and the iF Design Award. But it is not only the exterior, the company can be proud of. They know how to win over customers with its high-performance, top-level drive. Despite the comparatively young history of the company, WaveShark's products are at the forefront and already have many enthusiastic fans. Noble workmanship, amazing performance and award-winning appearance help the company to a leading position in the electric water sports industry.

Characteristics

What makes WaveShark stand out?

VERSATILITY

While many companies focus on covering a single product category, the Chinese watersports experts are managing a balancing act between electric jetboards and the related e-foil boards. The manufacturer shines with a great selection of models that more than satisfactorily do justice to their respective tasks. There are two representatives each, Sport and Explorer, which either perform incredibly well or have unbelievably long runtimes. For example, you can glide over the water for up to 3 hours without interruption with the WaveShark Foil 2 or reach top speeds of up to 60 km/h with the WaveShark Jetboard 2. You won't find this versatility of perfection with any other company. So let us convince you and help yourself with innovative products in a class of their own.

PERFORMANCE

According to their own statement, WaveShark produces the fastest jetboard in the world that accelerates from 0 to 60km/h within 3 seconds. In addition, the developers have also made progress in the area of runtime and present with the WaveShark Foil an unrivaled operating time of 3 hours at a stretch. They are also proud of the completely in-house development work, which led to high-quality results and also ensures a place at the top of the market due to strict quality controls. Whether with the WaveShark Foil 2 Sport, which with its powerful drive is aimed primarily at professional surfers, or the WaveShark Jetboard 2 Explorer, which lasts longer than any other jetboard on the market. All products speak for themselves. So there is only one question left to ask: What is your passion?

SAFETY

The company attaches particular importance to appropriate safety in the use of its products. And rightly so. Powerful electronic devices are exposed to completely different conditions on the water, which is why they have to withstand greater stress. WaveShark conducted an incredible 193 safety tests before launching their products, identifying any problems in advance and making sure you don't have to worry about them. Only the highest quality materials and the latest technology are used, so even if something goes wrong, it will help prevent major accidents. For example, the battery is encased in a 3-layer shell that provides redundant physical protection and immediately triggers an alarm if even a drop of water gets into the wrong place. The intelligent system monitors the status at all times and has safety mechanisms such as overvoltage or overcharge protection, short circuit protection & temperature / health monitoring.

Conclusion & Alternatives

What should you consider before buying a WaveShark Board?

The ambitious Chinese company is rightly aiming for a leading position in the electric water sports market. Their products shine with excellent performance and solid workmanship, as well as an appropriate selection of high-quality materials. The focus on comprehensive safety measures calms the mind, but also counts as standard. The contemporary technology and focus on high ranges has its raison d'être, but also leads to the fact that there is room for improvement in other areas. For example, the jetboard's weight of around 55kg is a bit too heavy for a surfer with a maximum of 100kg of own weight for uncomplicated transport. Here it is worth taking a look at manufacturers like AWAKE (e.g. Rävik S) or Radinn (e.g. Carve).


The E-Foils from WaveShark are already better positioned in terms of weight, although the range has been similarly optimized. The products create a great overall impression and leave few points of criticism. Only the configuration of the riding style via various wing options (e.g. Fliteboard PRO) currently leaves something to be desired. However, this might be improved soon. Customization options regarding the design could also help the manufacturer to become more widespread, but are not mandatory from our point of view. Better a solid board that can convince with a balanced driving feel, than colorful collections that are unfinished in their performance.
