What is an eFoil? How much does one cost?

An eFoil, also known as an electric hydrofoil, is a personal watercraft designed to lift the rider above the water’s surface. This allows the rider to glide effortlessly over the water, using the propeller and remote, to create a unique and exhilarating surfing experience. Since the invention of the eFoil by Lift Foils, it has opened up new opportunities for riders to catch small waves and explore many flat locations previously unexplored.

Lift eFoil Explained

How Does eFoiling Work?

The eFoil electric motor is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack stored inside the board while riding. The battery pack drives the small electric motor and propeller mounted on the hydrofoil mast beneath the board.

The hydrofoil itself consists of a front wing, back wing, fuselage and mast to make up the airplane-like structure that lifts the board out of the water. Riders use a wireless remote control to adjust speed and settings on the eFoil. With having full control of the personal watercraft as the rider, this enables an easy learning experience.
