The hype around the electric hydrofoil basically exploded in 2017. We hear from new projects almost every other week.
It is just fascinating to fly above the water surface. Many commercial products are announced for 2018 and we will help you to keep informed about them.
No matter if the inflatable hydrofoil which you can easily fit into the back of your car or the DIY electric hydrofoil – you will find them here.
A Hydrofoil needs less power compared to a normal electric surfboard once it is flying. This makes the board not only less expensive, but also a few problems such like heating can be resolved more easily.
Next to the commercial e-Foils there was formed a community over the last months which build their own e-hydrofoils.
Originally single projects were documented (for example on Youtube) but now you can find almost all of them in one place. Read more about the efoil.builders forum below.
With all the hype around the electric hydrofoils we don’t think they will replace electric surfboards.
It is a different feeling. While you can aggressively carve with an surfboard a hydrofoil is for smooth cruising about the surface.
With the E-TAKUMA electric hydrofoil the company Takuma Concept who is known for hydrofoils for Kitesurfing, Windsurfing, Waveboarding, Surfing and SUP is bringing their 3 years experience in foiling to the E-Foil market.
Takuma has offices in France, Japan and New Caledonia and wants to start shipping in April 2019.
