Our Waterwolf episode is ready with a lot of tests, great results and fun experience. We had a fabulous time with Andreas from e-Surfer and Markus — creator of the Waterwolf jetboard, an electric board boasting a distinctive propeller design. Our drone session was fantastic with a whole crew of drones flying together, and we visited the Eisbach, an astonishing river surf park in the middle of Munich.
This is no longer a rumour going around ... Hamburg-based manufacturer of electric jetboards has filed for insolvency but all may not be over yet. It is now confirmed that despite raising over 800,000 euros in 2015 and 3,500,000 euros a few months ago, the company wasn't able to create a viable model and just filed for bankruptcy. However many questions remain unanswered and Motosurf Nation is keeping you posted with fresh news coming straight from Lampuga's headquarters in Hamburg.
“The preliminary insolvency proceedings could offer the possibility for fresh money and thus give the opportunity for an economic recovery” Tjark Thies.
Within a few months the German company relaunched its product portfolio, was named runner up at the Deloitte’s Rising Star award 2016, and attended the international boat shows of Dusseldorf, Miami, and Dubai.
“It is great to see how the e-mobility industry is constantly evolving. We are proud of our leading role and we always strive to meet our highest expectations of pushing the boundaries of feasibility.”
