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.
The Jetfoiler from Kai Concepts is an electric hydrofoil developed in Alameda close to San Francisco.
The Kai concept team is led by Don Montague who has an impressive water-sports background. Don worked close with Robby Naish and Pete Cabrinha where he developed for example their windsurf sails and kites as the head of R&D at Naish International.
The Elevate is an inflatable electric foil surfboard which is developed in Germany close to the Bodensee and continues the studies of the swedish evolo hydrofoil project
The idea is to develop a multi purpose foil surfboard which can be used with an electric powered expeller engine or be used as a foil windsurf- or even kiteboard and the goal oft he study is to show that it is possible to ride at speeds of 30km/h with only 1KW electric power.
These are busy days for Liftfoils CEO Nick Leason as he is preparing the initial launch of the eFoil later this year. In our eFoil interview from July 2017 he is giving his some insights about him and his company.
We prepared a catalog of 10 questions for our eFoil interview which Nick was able to answer even while he is currently travelling.
Today LiftFoils started the pre-order of its electric hydrofoil surfboard. There will be only a limited quantity available this year (scheduled for September) and you can reserve your eFoil now for a 2,500 USD deposit while the final price will be 12,500 USD plus shipping.
