In June 2018 Liftfoils started shipping the first 50 units of its eFoil. According to their website they have a “few hundred” pre-orders to fulfil over the next weeks.
If you order now they forecast a shipping time of 3-4 months. Resellers can sign up and will get the first shipments in October.
As part of their launch in June the team around Nick Leason put a few videos together in order to help customers with setup and first steps.
The videos are well made.
In their video number one “Initial Setup” you can see the different components very well. Watch the video here:
So far they have published 7 instruction videos which are each around 3 – 5 minutes long.
