The story behind Awake
”Why do I need all this gear...?”
– This question is what drove wakeboarder and Awake co-founder Philip Werner to build his first electric surfboard in 2012.
The real journey began one year later, in 2013, with the launch of his first electric surfboard company. In 2017, Philip and his two partners, Daniel Aronsson and Mikael Kajbring left and founded a new company with the purpose of creating the best and most desired, cutting-edge, high-performance electric jetboards on the market.
The next milestone came in the spring of 2022, with the launch of Awake’s first eFoil, the Awake VINGA.
