ELEVATE – inflatable electric foil surfboard

The Elevate is an inflatable electric foil surfboard which is developed in Germany close to the Bodensee.

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.

The inflatable electric foil surfboard is 90 inches or 228 cm long, 31 inches or 80 cm wide and has a total weight of 55 lbs or 25 kg. If you deflate the Elevate and dismount the mast and wings you can easily store it in the back of a car.

The team has recently developed their engine 2.0 (called Dual-Pod) using an expeller which is supposed to cut the price of the engine by 50%. The end-user price will be around 6,900 USD.

The expeller engine has 2,000 watt and the swappable batteries are good for a 30 minutes ride or a range of 9.3 miles or 15 km.

The cruise speed of the Elevate board is about 15.5-18.6 mph or 25-30 km/h.

Given the amount of electric hydrofoils which are entering the market in 2018, the Elevate team is limiting the amount of information they are releasing at this time.

The video which you can also find in our video section is promising and the fact that the complete inflatable electric foil surfboard fits into the back of a car is great.

The eFoil is currently the only electric hydrofoil which will be available in a limited number in 2017. Many others like Eldoridedo will follow 2018.

Most of the electric Foils come with a price tag above 10,000 USD. Good to see that this board can bring down the price with the Dual-Pod engine below 7,000 USD.
